CONCURRENT SESSION 5B

Time: 9.00am - 10.30am
Towards Secure, Dynamic Networks through Software Control.
Comprehension and control of IT systems is a fundamental skill of a modern digitally enabled organisation. As these systems become increasingly numerous and complex, traditional manual management techniques risk becoming fragile and cumbersome. Taming system complexity while making full and reliable use of these systems has become a critical goal for many organisations.
While the benefits of software control and automation are now well understood in the worlds of systems and services, it is only recently these solutions have started reaching out into the control of network infrastructure. In this talk we will discuss some of the practical considerations and tooling available today to automate network management. We will also describe how small steps towards software control today will help on the journey towards more dynamic and secure campus networks of the future.
