*laughs* As I read the post I was delighted to see some humorous pictures being added to the list of software defined inanity out there! Glad to have inspired, and I am a huge fan of the meter image used for the Software Defined Business item! ;-)

You're right, those are two huge challenges. I expect SDN security will become a bigger issue as SDN moves from pilot projects to wider adoption.

In current scenerio one of the challenge i see with IT is how to integrate SDN with existing infrastructure keeping impact minimal and considering potential security vulnerabilities across the SDN platform.

I feel, that as long as the cost of "Software" is perceived to be lower than "hardware" by the customer (and in most case that is the case), startups are going to continue to tag software-defined to almost everything.

Re: inspiration
Good point, the process of using software to automate workload was always going to provide value. Looking forward, with each passing generation that standard and efficiency of software is just going to increase -- making it increasing difficult to separate what's software-defined and what is not, add marketing into the mix that want to define everything with the same phase and things will become complicated.

You don't think there's any chance some of them will have the decency to be embarrassed into silence for a little while?
