SDN helps value in big data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we are investigating the ways that software-defined network (SDN) [2-5] facilitates the creation of value in Big Data [6-8]. We will use the term value inclusively, meaning that it refers to the monetary value that an organization could additionally generate from Big Data, as well as the extraction of knowledge, best practices, and transfer of knowledge resulting from Big Data. In order to cover the broad spectrum of the ways SDN accommodates generating extra value from Big Data, the discussion will focus on four deployment scenarios spanning over two dimensions: the infrastructure setting and type (i.e., centralized/decentralized, public/private) and the nature of the data (i.e., at rest/streamed and private/public).
