Softwarization has been transforming industries like data center and communications businesses. The established hardware-based architectures are being replaced by fundamentally new approaches - software-based systems which are essentially more flexible, dynamic and powerful. In this paper we analyse the evolution in data centers and communications networks towards virtualized platforms and study how a similar type of evolution could impact and benefit power distribution. Following the softwarization process in other industry sectors, we consider that next a Software Defined Grid (SDG) will emerge.
