SDN - Outlook

The value proposition of Software Defined Networks (SDN) begs the question, what is the promise versus what is the reality? Most of the current literature states SDNs value proposition in list format without clear, well-defined use cases as to where it can directly benefit today's complex enterprise networks. To state it another way, SDN may be an panacea, but the path to get there from today's reality is obfuscated.

That leaves us with two main points:
  1. uptake will probably be phased, adopting pieces of SDN architecture that provide clear and immediate benefits with little disruptive change to existing infrastructure, and
  2. know what problem you are trying to solve and use SDN architecture concepts if they are the right fit.
