In this talk we cover techniques and information, from risk analysis to ROI as well as present some tools and case studies that will help internal decision makers to make the case for using, leveraging or deploying OpenDaylight in their organization. While Open Source is growing in popularity and being adopted more and more in large organization there still are a few managers that are reluctant about the hidden costs to Open Source and more specifically OpenDaylight in their organization. It is still easier to justify buying an off-the shelf vendor product that will solve that particular need. The purpose of this talk is to give the audience everything they need to be able to successfully the get budgets and justify leveraging OpenDaylight platform in their organization from the membership to the production support.
