The pervasiveness of cloud computing along with the escalating demand for mobility, social collaboration and analytics continue to place an enormous strain on enterprise networks. The need for instantaneous, elastic connectivity across the enterprise is no longer just an option; it is the table stakes for a successful business.

Whether organisations are actively pursuing growth opportunities or reductions in IT cost and complexity, they need a network that is automated, intelligent and optimised for seamless operation within an increasingly virtualised and hybrid IT environment.

Software defined networking (SDN) is answering the need for agility by transforming hardware-intensive legacy networks into fully programmable, software-driven networks that streamline operations and the delivery of new services.

This paper explores the cloud-era technologies that are driving the move to SDN, the implications for the enterprise, and the exceptional business benefits when SDN is deployed holistically as part of a software defined environment (SDE). The paper presents IBM’s point of view and outlines the way forward for SDN transformation.
