Audience: Beginner

About: What is OpenStack? Who uses OpenStack? How can OpenStack help Telco’s, ISP’s and Operators? What challenges are on the way, and what can you do?

This talk will discuss the benefits of OpenStack, with examples from some of the largest global companies currently using this platform. It will also cover a roadmap to identify new projects coming to the market (particularly around SDN and NFV), and the growing maturity of OpenStack and beyond.

Roland will show the audience how to commit to a software defined strategy, how to build an innovation lab with a customer focussed partner, and more.
