Some of them have hired DevOps experts - I assume directors - and they claim to be making progress.
I think the transition to doing their own software and not getting backup from vendors is going to be enormously interesting. I am already seeing vendors develop business plans around supporting open source and being the "backstop" for network operators. I'd expect to see those models evolve.
When they start hiring Devops Directors and such...then progress will be made. Until then, they will struggle. Then Open Source can be implemented and things can move forward nicely.
Going to be interesting to see how they start writing their own software and stop buying any from vendors.
