Lifecycle Management - How to Turn Your Non-Standard Operating Environment Standard

Join our webinar to learn how open source network and management tools can become the mission control for your systems throughout the lifecycle of your project.


Lifecycle management is a process and toolset that is designed to provide a systematic and repeatable method for managing each stage of a system from conception through production. The key to operating an enterprise environment using a lifecycle management approach is this: a clear set of procedures and a toolset to execute it. A plan without the tools cannot be implemented, while tools without a plan will provide unpredictable results.

In this webinar, Red Hat’s Senior Product Marketing Manager Chris Wells and Manager of Solutions Architects Thomas Cameron will cover:

  • Building the ideal Standard Operating Environment (SOE)
  • SOE Challenges
  • The importance of PROCESS in SOE success
  • An overview of Red Hat Network Satellite
  • Real success stories from customers
  • Q&A session

With Red Hat Network Satellite’s web-based interface, you can easily provision hundreds of servers in a matter of minutes, keeping them error-free, up-to-date, patched, and fully compliant. A successful lifecycle management approach is the combination of a thorough and workable set of procedures combined with the right toolset.
