SDN Tweetup May 17: Will SDN applications ever generate cash?

During our Tweetup May 17 at 12 p.m. EDT we'll discuss whether SDN applications should be generating or accelerating revenue. Hashtag #SDNchat.

@SearchSDN is hosting its second Tweetup on Friday, May 17, at 12 p.m. EDT. Using the hashtag #SDNchat, we'll discuss whether software networks and SDN applications must be revenue-generating or revenue-accelerating in order to experience widespread uptake. Keep track of #SDNChat tweets by logging into Tweet Chat.

Come ready to debate the following questions:

Q1. Do we need to see immediate revenue-accelerating or revenue-generating applications in order for SDN to take off?

Q2. Can we make the case for SDN by saying that it won't immediately generate revenue but will make networks more cost-efficient?

Q3. What might revenue-generating SDN applications look like? Will they be enterprise or service provider apps?

Q4. Do you have to prove SDN cost efficiency and savings in order to get your CIO to invest?
