Computer Weekly – 12 March 2013: Will software-defined networking justify the hype?

Computer Weekly – 12 March 2013: Will software-defined networking justify the hype?

In this week’s Computer Weekly, we take an in-depth look at one of the hottest emerging technologies – software-defined networking – and what it means for IT departments. We visit Iceland, home of the greenest datacentres, and see what they offer to CIOs. We look at the growth of governance as a key task for CIOs as business executives grab more influence over IT spending. And we examine the data privacy considerations of developing mobile apps. Read the issue now.

 

Buyer’s guide to software-defined networking – part one: SDN will transform your network – but not just yet

Software-defined networking (SDN) will revolutionise the router and switch business and wipe millions off costs. So what’s holding it up?

 

CIOs must be prepared for a shift toward governance

The CIO is an evolving role and changes in technology and budgets, which are encouraging business departments to demand and use IT without consulting the IT department, mean the CIO’s role is shifting more towards governance.

 

Iceland pushes green datacentres

Renewable energy resources and free air cooling make Iceland a top datacentre location, but big firms have yet to take the plunge.

 

Mobile data privacy rules cannot be ignored

As increased mobile use leads to a greater focus on data privacy, CIOs must ensure all mobile apps developed in-house do not fall foul of the law.

 

Case study: School building project uses Huddle to coordinate development suppliers

When the Education Funding Agency wanted a means of sharing data with no training required it turned to a cloud-based platform.

 

Interview: Corporate travel leader strives for more success to ‘change industry’

Carlson Wagonlit Travel’s CIO talks about bringing uniformity and efficiency across international borders and keeping the IT in good shape.

 

Opinion: Benefits management can make the difference to an IT project’s success

A coherent approach involving senior management is vital to maximising IT investments in the current economic climate, write John Ward, emeritus professor at Cranfield University School of Management and Elizabeth Daniel, professor of information management at the Open University Business School.

  • CW Buyer's Guide: Software-defined networking

     

     

    By providing the capability to move much of a switch’s work to an abstracted software layer, software-defined networking (SDN) promises to revolutionise the networking hardware market and automate networks to better support a range of different workloads, wiping millions off costs in the process.

     

    In this 11-page buyer’s guide, Computer Weekly looks at how SDN can give IT administrators greater control over the network infrastructure and make it a far more flexible and agile part of the business.
