A Network Services roadmap to Think 2019

By: Shashank Nair

If your organization is actively pursuing growth opportunities through innovation or reductions in cost and complexity, it is vital to have a network that is automated, intelligent and optimized for seamless operation within an increasingly virtualized and hybrid IT environment. 

Software-defined networking(SDN) services help you unleash your network from hardware constraints and increase network agility and security with a programmatic approach and the recent ISG report has recognized IBM as a market leader for this.

IBM’s Think 2019 conference in San Francisco provides the penultimate opportunity to learn about emerging technologies, get one-on-one advice from experts, enjoy world-class entertainment and networking, and hear all about the successes and challenges faced by global business leaders and industry disruptors.

When there’s this much going on, it can be overwhelming to build your agenda. If Network Services are your focus, these are the sessions you don’t want to miss.
