    After years of hype and successful implementation by telecom players and cloud providers, SDN is making its way into enterprise environments. How can you tell if it's right for you? Enterprise and local government IT leaders will share the good, the bad and the ugly moments in their SDN deployments: why they chose to adopt SDN in the first place, what they learned in the process, their results so far, and what they plan to do next.

    If you've been curious about SDN but aren't sure how to proceed, these experts will provide some practical guidance for defining, scoping and getting approval for your project. If you've been unsure about SDN's potential value for your organization, you may walk away with new ideas. Lisa Caywood moderates.
