One of the big improvements between the NSX-V and NSX-T is that in NSX-T you are no longer dependent on V-Center anymore.

It has reduced the number of people on the network team along with the system engineer involved in the security process. So, it is valuable.
From a distributed firewall perspective, it's a solid solution.

We would to have a reverse proxy. This would add great value to the solution.
We would like better integration with the standards on the market. For example, with OSPF, their integration in NSX is very low. It's not a full OSPF integration. It is too thin from a protocol perspective.
