Network management and monitoring is at the heart of nearly all network operations, and yet the methodologies and technology used in this critical area are lagging far behind. SDN brought abstractions and programmability to the control plane, but the management plane has not seen similar advances.

At the last OpenDaylight mini-summit we motivated a new high-level approach for SDN-based configuration management. In this talk we describe the mission and progress of a new industry collaboration to build the basis of programmable management for heterogeneous and complex networks. The OpenConfig working group is structured as a low-overhead open source project with contributions from multiple global-scale network operators. The initial focus of the group is to develop a set of vendor-neutral data models for configuration and state management based on real-world operational use cases.

I joined the network architecture team at Google about a year ago. Before that, I was with IBM's System Networking product division where I led SDN product architecture, and IBM Networking's open source development efforts in OpenStack and OpenDaylight.
