Technology - Virtual Roundtable

The cloud era has changed networking forever.
Does networking have a major role in the future?

25th June 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm ET
How can DevOps principles help networking drive digital transformation and the cloud?

The networking approaches of the past are not going to cut it for building the cloud infrastructure of the future. The cloud has changed the way networks are designed and consumed as customers continue their digital transformation journey.

Along their journeys, many organizations are making increased investment in DevOps tools and processes. However, the primary focus of DevOps has been on application development and management, begging the question: ‘What is the role of networking in this new cloud world?’

Is the status quo holding networking back? How should networking evolve? Does networking become a series of APIs, or is something more needed? And what’s next for cloud networking?

Join Nokia and a select group of industry peers to discuss how to balance network growth and flexibility, with reliability and resiliency. You’ll also discover how a DevOps approach to operating the network can increase efficiency and reduce operational cost through the automation of network operations for the cloud.

Discussion Topics

What challenges is your existing network causing when it comes to your cloud transformation efforts? And what needs to change with the existing networking paradigm?
What role does DevOps play in your current IT environment? How could you envisage the principles of DevOps applied to networking to streamline development?
In a DevOps environment, resources are easily consumable via well- documented APIs. How do you see APIs boosting networking agility and accelerating transformation?
