SDN and NFV are often cited as technology disruptors but their disruptive influence will impact more than legacy network architectures

  • How will organisational responsibilities realign between the CTO, CIO and Product Management/CMO Organisations?
  • How will SP’s equip themselves with the skills required to become a software focused organisation
  • What does the culture of a successfully transformed Service Provider look like?

Earlier this month European Communications published the results of its survey that examined the impact of NFV on existing service provider organisational structures and business models.

In this webinar Marc Smith of European Communications will present the survey's key findings. Jack Barrett, author of the white paper SDN & NFV: Transforming the Service Provider Organisation will explore what this means for the CTO and CIO organisations as service providers move to a more software based network. He will also look at the growing influence of the CMO and Product Marketing teams as the everything as a service culture, enabled by NFV, becomes the norm.

NFV has been called a "game-changer" nothing will be quite the same ever again. Organisations must transform if they are to embrace the benefits that NFV can deliver and this change potentially affects you and your colleagues.

Join the webinar to find out what your peers told us in the survey and how this transformation will leave no role untouched.
