Keywords:SDN? Internet of Things? cloud? APEJ?

SDN is creating a lot of excitement in modern day's data centre networking infrastructure, mostly to address the challenges introduced with the rise of the 3rd platform.

"While most of the attention has been given in recent years towards SDN in service providers' data centre networks, as they strive to be the first movers, not to be forgotten is the potential for SDN in enterprise data centre networks. Enterprises are interested in reaping the benefits of a more agile and simple network, but need more assistance from the professionals to get to the end point," said Adeline Phua, senior research manager, Enterprise Networking at IDC Asia/Pacific.

IDC sees that the market is at a tipping point with significant opportunities for SDN in both cloud service provider rollouts and enterprise deployments in the APEJ region. Though enterprises are mostly testing waters today, evaluating the best use cases and planning for their investments bit by bit, IDC sees the potential of the enterprise segment in boosting the SDN market over the next several years in this region.

IDC recommends that vendors in the SDN ecosystem realise the differentiated SDN related needs from cloud providers and that of enterprises and build their approach accordingly.

"As Asia/Pacific enterprises start embracing SDN, leading networking and IT vendors in the ecosystem need to play a pivotal role in educating their channels and customers on their SDN migration roadmap; while the start-ups will continue to collaborate with other players in the ecosystem and bring in more innovative approach to address end-customer challenges in their SDN journey," said Surjyadeb.

The IDC study, "Building Business 2.0: Datacenter and Enterprise Networks in Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Are Gearing Up to Benefit from Software-Defined Networking," takes a closer look at the rapidly evolving SDN market in APEJ and its associated ecosystem, while analysing opportunities and challenges for cloud service providers and enterprise networks.
