The revolving door might spin faster if Juniper's software solutions division is folded into its platform systems division under new CEO Shaygan Kheradpir, a former Verizon and Barclays IT executive. There's talk that that may be in the works, and may have ignited the abrupt departure of SSD chief Bob Muglia.
With a new CEO onboard who comes from a large Juniper customer, Juniper can ill afford to develop products to prove a point or satisfy an intellectual itch rather than meet customer demand. It will be interesting to see if the customer CEO has much patience for the science experiment CTO, and vice versa.
