    SDN Deployment Trends

    Moving to an SDN architecture has a profound impact on an organization’s IT infrastructure. It makes sense, therefore, that IT management is more heavily involved throughout the decision process. Among respondents, nearly one-third of SDN decision makers have primary responsibilities in IT services, infrastructure, or systems or networking management. Respondents help determine need, budget, create technical parameters and specifications, choose suppliers, and more.

    While SDN deployments can now be found in every industry, their presence is strongest in technology-related fields and financial services.

Moving past its infancy, software-defined networking (SDN) is becoming a significant player in the management of IT infrastructure and network design. While implementation can be a challenge, SDN is attractive to many businesses due to its potential for cost savings, improved network performance, increased productivity and improved security.

QuinStreet Enterprise surveyed IT decision makers to better understand how enterprises view these networking technologies, as well as their SDN deployment plans. In this slideshow, we've highlighted findings from the survey. To learn more, download the full report and watch a video roundtable discussing SDN in the enterprise.
