NFV roll-out is probably taking longer than many initially expected, but huge and complex transformations will always involve delay, Diego tells Martyn Warwick. Diego says he also detects some “additional points of friction” between vendors and service providers. Instead of selling software, he says, the software vendor can be tempted to go the Software as a Service (SaaS) route. “It’s not happening as a general rule,” he says, “but the temptation is there.”
