"As networks become software-defined, the network itself becomes an application, creating a war for developer talent across the networking industry. In addition, there are fears that increasingly automated networks could disintermediate network life-cycle services partners. Vendors in Europe need to bring their partners with them on their transformation journey, otherwise they risk being disrupted by new hardware- and vendor-agnostic network solution providers."
