Far enough?
Do you think being a "networking pro" itself is too limited? Or do you need expertise across the datacenter to really be valuable? I'm wondering if the plum jobs will be less tied to software defined networking and more software definied datacenter.

Great theme to your article.  The more converged infrastructure becomes and the more software controlled it is, the more it requires a re-think of not only roles but org structures as well.  Siloed disciplines and areas of responsiblity become problematic.  For example capacity management becomes something that can no longer be a periodic planning activity by a small group and must become an integrated part of daily infrastructure management and cover network, storage, compute and also even software licensing control.
