While today we see an enormous amount of incredible software being published, both by tech giants and niche providers, there is a significant lag in the telco industry’s ability to leverage it.
The promise of a software-defined technology landscape is, of course, agility.
But what is the main factor preventing telecommunications enterprises from adopting open source software?
With licensing costs no longer being an issue, the friction has now become centered around operations instead. Onboarding, integrating, and operating software must be simple for enterprises, or else they are prevented from reaping its benefits.
Opening the Digital Infrastructure Investment stream at this year’s AfricaCom, Canonical’s founder and CEO Mark Shuttleworth spoke about the pressing need to find a way around software complexity, as it increasingly becomes the cornerstone of modern infrastructure.
Hear him share his insight on how telcos and other organisations should be thinking about:
- Public clouds, private clouds and micro clouds
- Layers of software-defined infrastructure
- Application management and integration in a multi-vendor, multi-cloud world
- The new wave of IoT applications
