Re: Tier 1 - IT/Network question
Very true about the limitation for cloud software and proprietary software. And that is one of the reasons for growing importance for open source platform. But there still seems to beclear gap in that area and can surely be worked out by compaies in that area.

Re: Tier 1 - IT/Network question
@dcawrey, well said.  But that is difficult for some to recognize that they are losing when they ony focus on protecting their proprietary software.  They think they are gaining, but are increasingly losing.

Re: Tier 1 - IT/Network question
When it comes to the cloud, proprietary software can be limiting. This is why open source is so important these days. It offers a flexibility closed systems simply cannot compete with. And that gap is only going to get wider.

Re: Tier 1 - IT/Network question
I also would like to join the group in favoring the CSPs moving towards open source. That common directive should really improve open source standards in the industry.

Cloud-based DSP
Most CSPs have embarked on their respective ecosystem transformations, which will culminate in a new type of service provider: the cloud-based, agile digital service provider (DSP), according to the report.

Interesting concept - cloud based agile digital service provider. Many key words in one phrase - Cloud , Agile and Service Provider.

There are no doubts with Cloud and no one needs any special explanation.

Agaile, ofcourse is very much required for recent approach for any initiative.

Service Provider - is the opensource demand across the globe

All i say is way to go......

Using Open Source
Using partners may affect margins and business models. However, each company will have to assess the cost (TCO and ROI) of implementing open source on their own, the timeframe, and the cost of using open source partners to achieve their goals.

The merger of IT and network domains would be interesting.

Ecosystem Transformation
CSPs question the value of open source although SDN and NFV are key roles in enabling digital transformations, because some CSPs are afraid of the unknown. They are afraid to experiment (R&D) without knowing the impact of using open source.
