Appledore Research Group has just published Part 2 of our major survey of the “MANO+” market.  This looks at the major needs and trends in orchestration, necessary to achieve hands-off, flexible automation.  We believe that the four areas are:

1. Model- and Policy-Driven Orchestration (truly model native)

2. Sophisticated On-Boarding and Modelling, including DevOps artifacts

3. Rapid, Automated Service Assurance to drive continuous orchestration

4. Dynamic, distributed and autonomous inventory

This framework research is available under subscription or for purchase:
