2nd Annual HP CIO and CTO Benchmark Study on NFV - Orchestration Increasingly on the minds CSPs


Do you agree? with the findings from our 2nd annual benchmark survey of CIO and CTO opinions on the NFV opportunity?  Found here. Using the "same" questions from last year's survey - when NFV was in more of a nascent stage - we found both consistency and evolution in the thinking.


Coleman Parkes Research on behalf of HP interviewed CIOs and CTOs from communications service providers (CSPs) around the world about NFV. The interviews took place in January 2015 and results were compared to a similar survey completed in January of last year. (Just in time for our conversations @ MWC!)


A hint of what we learned? Interest in orchestration has increased, OPEX efficiencies outweighed revenue gains as a top business driver for NFV imlementation. (though revenue generation goal remained high.)


Read summary of some of the findings here, and post your thoughts and comments.  Would love to hear them.
