Quote of the Day: SDN

"Begin to explore the potential benefits and risks that [Software-Defined Networking] will bring to your organization, but beware of SDN-washing which simply re-labels legacy approaches with the latest buzzwords."

-- Joe Skorupa, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner, in a Gartner Q&A about SDN.
