In late 2017, SIA (Societá Interbancaria per l’Automazione) launched a new digital platform that lets people in 34 countries across Europe transfer and receive sums of up to €15,000 per individual transaction in seconds, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It’s a system that can process 27 million payments daily, with an average round trip of 20 milliseconds and a 99.999% availability, and you can hear all about it at this year’s Red Hat Summit, May 8 – 10 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
As you plan your schedule at Red Hat Summit, May 8 – 10 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, we hope you’ll make time to join us for a special financial services industry session from 2:30 – 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, in room 2012. The session, entitled “How cloud, APIs, and automation are changing financial services in a digital world,” will feature talks from some of our top FSI customers including Nordea and Barclays. Following these presentations, all these companies will be joined by the Bank of Montreal for a panel discussion moderated by Gabriele Columbro, Executive Director FINOS, Fintech Open Source Foundation. We’ll cap things off with a Financial Services Happy Hour from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
Open source has come a long way since Red Hat took its first steps 25 years ago. Our upstream first philosophy has been the driving force for all the projects to which Red Hat contribute, and because of this we’ve decided to feature a telecom industry session with the theme, “The Future of Telco is Open.” This session is intended for all users of open source technologies in the telecommunications industry, including, but not limited to, independent software vendors, hardware manufacturers, and customers.
IT innovation within your business is vital to staying competitive and meeting customer expectations, regardless of your specific industry. For financial services organizations, long software release cycles, the high cost of managing complex infrastructures, and the lack of easy scalability with existing solutions can hamper a development team’s productivity. IT process automation is critical to making IT faster, more predictable, more collaborative, and more efficient, while freeing administrators to focus on efforts with the greatest organizational value. Check out our on-demand webinar series to learn more, and help jumpstart IT process automation for your financial services organization.
Telcos around the world are investing in virtual networking to digitally transform legacy infrastructure and gain efficiencies, deliver new services, meet evolving customer demands, and outperform the competition. Telecom Italia is no different. And at Red Hat Summit, May 8 -10 in San Francisco, the Italian telecommunications company will share its network functions virtualization (NFV) story.
Red Hat prides itself in leading the way in community-based innovation and associated best practices for enterprise consumption. This is why we are thrilled to announce that we have joined the Fintech Open Source Foundation (FINOS). FINOS is a nonprofit organization promoting open innovation in the financial services community. Red Hat OpenShift is providing the underlying technology for FINOS’ Open Developer Platform (ODP), one of the leading venues for community development within the financial services community.
Every year at Red Hat Summit, there are plenty of opportunities to hear customers’ stories, attend insightful keynotes and sessions, and network with industry experts, colleagues, fellow business people, and Red Hat and its partners.

At Red Hat Summit, May 8 – 10 at San Francisco’s famed Moscone Center, we’re covering payments platforms, business and IT automation, agile development, security, cloud, containers, virtualization, digital transformation and more.
This year at Red Hat Summit, May 8 -10 in San Francisco, telcos can count on hearing plenty about what matters most to them in 2018 – strategic insights and massively-scalable, open technologies and solutions that can help them deliver services like a public cloud. In demos and presentations, you can learn about network functions virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), containers, IT automation, DevOps, OpenStack, digital transformation and more.
In modern times, financial markets are sensitive to any number of factors – geopolitics, economic data, shifting prices on commodities, regional unrest, even market sentiment. And that sensitivity puts pressure on financial firms also contending with globalization, market competition and changes in regulation and international capital movements. To thrive amid all that – and work smarter, better and faster – consider IT automation. Want to know more? Check out this Red Hat solution brief.
Red Hat will be hosting or present at several events in North America over the next few months.
