Survey results revealed: Network architects’ perceptions of Cloud, SDN, and the future of networking

During the month of January 2014, Gigaom Research and Juniper Networks polled close to 250 network architects, engineers, and managers at large enterprises in North America on the topics of cloud computing and software-defined networking, revealing some fascinating insights.

The survey audience included a cross-section of senior network engineers and architects from all industries, at mid to large-sized companies. Respondents were decision-makers for the network within their respective organization.

On Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. PT, Gigaom Research analysts and Juniper Networks will discuss these findings in a free analyst webinar. Join us for “Survey results revealed: network architects’ perceptions on cloud, SDN and the future of networking.”
