Knowing exactly where you are is important to know how to get where you want to be. This is why a maturity model in Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation (OAV) was developed in the GÉANT Project, to assess the maturity level of research and education institutions in four dimensions: Architecture & Technology, Processes & Services, Vision & Strategy, and People & Organisation. This workshop provided some insights and help to fulfill it, and was also a  place for discussion of OAV solutions, current and future plans among the NRENs.
