Software skills that transform IT infrastructure

The network is facing its biggest transformation yet. As networks increasingly become programmable and software-defined, now more than ever, IT teams need partnerships between network engineers, software developers, and cybersecurity professionals. Together, these professionals create integrated, secure infrastructures and exciting new innovations.
