Keynote 3: Why Automation Is Hard and the Need for New Approaches

Marcus BrunnerMarcus Brunner

Bio: Dr. Marcus Brunner is the Head of Standardization/Open Source, Eco-system Development and Chief Researcher at Swisscom. He has been active in research, development, and standardization for 25 years with detailed experience in programmability of networks and services, cloud technology for IT and network service providers (NfV), and automation of network and IT including autonomic communication. He is involved in various international organizations on software-defined networking and the future telecommunication technologies like Network Function Virtualization and 5G networking. He is currently chair of the Network Operator Council (NOC) in ETSI ISG NFV.

Abstract: The NOMS community is working on all sorts of automation topics for years, but the level of achievement is relatively limited. The question, I am going to touch are: Why is this the case, what can be done differently, are we on the wrong track? What is needed to get it done? I will give a bit of a holistic view and issues at the different places.
