The “new normal” isn’t a given, especially for IT. CIOs and IT leaders get to define it for themselves and, odds are, it’s going to start with open source. But more than that, a new normal founded on open source software can help organizations uncover the genius within their ranks, no matter where it is or what shape it may take.

Red Hat CEO Paul CormierRed Hat president and chief executive officer Paul Cormier will explore the concept of the new normal in enterprise IT, and how CIOs can establish an innovative and more flexible future for their organization with open source technologies. Through conversations with Red Hat customers and partners, Cormier will highlight how open source code shifted from a hobby to a production necessity, and how this trend will only continue to evolve in the future. 

He will be joined by senior vice president of Partner Ecosystem Success, Stefanie Chiras, who will discuss the importance of our partner ecosystem and how Red Hat is the connective tissue that brings together a wide range of partners, ISVs, companies and technologies to help our customers succeed.

Matt Hicks, executive vice president, Products and Technologies, will then discuss how organizations can use this new normal to connect their geniuses and turn raw potential into their own innovation engine. 

Hicks will further explore how this connection is driven by open source through a deeper conversation with Red Hat customers and highlight how new open source platforms and technologies from Red Hat can help organizations build greater connections between distributed geniuses, helping to fuel the next wave of technological breakthroughs.

Wednesday, May 11: 9-10 a.m. EDT
