Putting forth the concept, the road to business agility goes though IT, and
tackling the question, “What does the software defined network mean for the
future of IT service delivery?,” Mr. Koushik will share his views on why
today’sIT organizations struggle to be agile, and then, using NTT’s
leadership in SDN as an example, he will speak to NTT I^3’s unique approach to
enabling agility for enterprises. Supported by Dr. Sriram Natarajan, senior
researcher at NTT I^3, Mr. Koushik will share how NTT is facilitating business
agility through the company’s pioneering use of SDN, market-leading global
private and public cloud offerings, and focus on building a more flexible and
adaptable infrastructure for enterprise clients. During his presentation, Mr.
Koushik will reveal the key customer centric solutions within the areas of
security, cloud computing and SDN that NTT I^3 will focus on during the next
12 to 18 months.

Backed by the financial strength of NTT and building on NTT’s world renowned
R&D heritage, NTT I^3 strives to set a new global standard of agility, quality
and value creation in pursuit of open service innovation. NTT’s researchers
have invested considerable resources in developing a leading position on next
generation data center technology and service models through contributions to
working groups and standards bodies, developing early stage solutions and
providing thought leadership positions. NTT I^3’s position that the next
generation data center will be software defined and more responsive to
business demands will be illustrated through Mr. Koushik’s presentation.

Koushik’s first as CEO following the official opening reception for NTT I^3 on
