Re: Being Open
@afwriter:

That is a very valid point. And that's where the due diligence plays a rlole in decision making process. Proper planning and defining accurate contingencies is very critical in such initiatives.

Re: 3 'A's of NFV
Ofcourse...

Agility has become new name of the game this age. EVery small or big company is pushing agile approach into their implementations these days. The culture is chnaging in a way that no one likes to wiat long to see an dfind something not so exciting after a long implementation cycle.

Re: Being Open
Well said dcawrey. No smart company would make a call to go reinvent the  wheel starting from scratch while the basic framework is available through Opensource. Things are moving pretty quick and i believe everyone is being so mindful of that time crunch and making decisions accordingly.

@faryl:

Yes, the trend is more into adapting open source. Also to add, open source has become much better in terms of what is out there available to choose.

Re: Being Open
Certainly...

Teamwork is the way to go. You could do so many things sollo but at the end to hit the finish line you got to collaborate.

Re: Being Open
@afwriter - I think the concept is a little counter-intuitive in a business model, but in the end, using one another will be better for everyone. Teamwork is beneficial for all.

Re: Being Open
Open source approaches being a religion, but since my current project is using R, Tableau, and MySQL very heavily, I'm daily exposed to why it takes on that quality. In part it's common sense: there's no way of extracting value by building toll gates when any developer who encounters them is just going to build a cheaper (and cheaper, and cheaper, and then free) gate next to them. Another part is a sort of idealistic function, the feeeling that not just my software, but everyone's, ought to run well.

It absolutely doesn't fit any traditional management model. People making stuff better just because it can be better, and they want it to be better -- for everyone -- is really not a concept in economics or business management as we know them.

Now the hard part: figuring out how to pay people so that working in an open system way is not just more fun and better for the software, but more lucrative. Not an easy problem -- but what open systems teach us is that as soon as anyone solves it, we will all have access to the solution.

Re: Being Open
I agree. It's why I'm glad to see so many people embracing open source now. Hopefully it's becoming less of a hurdle.

Re: Being Open
I think open source is critically important to this. Without it, every organization would waste time building platforms. That would really slow NFV's progress if you ask me.

Being Open
"Kirksey further emphasized that the only way to get NFV automation right to begin with is to embrace an "open" model -- getting people extensively collaborating with each other to lay the groundwork properly the first time"

I am so for this, but I also understand why companies are hesitant to do it. I feel like when the dam breaks and these companies all work together we are going to see huge breakthroughs in a short amount of time.
