“You can pay for school, but you can’t buy class.”
Everyone wants to be classy. Tuxedos, five-star restaurants, playing the piano—all are associated with “class.” However, while no one wears a tuxedo every day, and few people can afford to eat at a five-star establishment for every meal, anyone can play the piano—provided the instrument is automated. With a player piano, you can hear Mozart, Beethoven, or Chopin anytime you want by simply flipping a switch—without ever touching the keys yourself.

Earlier this month, Juniper was a Diamond Sponsor of MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress in Paris. This year's overarching theme was how to evolve from network management to orchestration. In this context, Juniper was advocating autonomous networks that can configure, monitor and maintain themselves, adapting to their operating environments with little or no human intervention. Juniper calls this the Self-Driving Network™. We also announced a strategic organizational change this month. To increase alignment between strategy and execution, Juniper has created a new position of Strategy and Product Line Management, senior vice president, and has appointed Kevin Hutchins to this role. Additionally, Juniper's engineering organization now reports into chief development officer, Andy Athreya. This coincides with the departure of Jonathan Davidson.
