CTO Daily Dose - Integrating closed and opened systems

During Techfield Day 15 (TFD15) Cisco systems presented on two major concepts. The first, integrating Kubernetes with Cisco ACI. The second, adopting OpenConfig to manage Service Provider WAN (SP-WAN). The overall theme is the concept of integrating open source solutions for traditional closed solutions and the value. Some of the delegates walked away understanding this is a confused market. Cisco along with customers are still figuring out what hybrid-source environments interoperate and are managed.
