Goodbye to CloudGenics and hello to PaloAlto's Network Automation Platform
I do think this is the way to go, PaloAlto has created a network they intend to utilize  which offers services ranging from network creation, management, and network control. They are looking to control the highway to create a clean environment the same way Google is.

I have been a proponent of PaloAlto Networks since their inception using AppID and controlling the application, I think this goes right inline with the ability to create networks (as long as the network is consistent - good data in, good data out, this is where CloudGenix comes into play, they use YAML files to create automated SDNs and Physical networks).

I do think with PaloAlto's R&D team, they could improve this CloudGenix process because it looks like it is not polished, more from a DevOps perspective. I did see from the video (CloudGenix, the admin where the admin had to make changes and create variables in the YAML file "type: {switch}"; the application should have done this,  hopefully they can move this process to the next level.

It is an interesting time.

Business Model
Most if not all of the organizations who are created, the members want to be able to fly off into the sunset without dealing with numerous rules, regulations and coding practices. Once they get their piece of the pie, they are done or go out and create another organization.

I can see the reasons why, dealing with the headaches of a company can be problematic.

Another Little Phish Gets Swallowed Up
Security humor aside, we are now most definitely in the age of acquisition. It feels as if companies are being created with the sole desire to be acquired.
