It should not be a one-size fits all world in the cloud, and we believe that’s even more apparent today. Our watchword today is “hybrid cloud.” An organization may not only want to be able to put workloads on multiple clouds, but also to move workloads between on-premise infrastructure and multiple public cloud environments. If this is the direction your organization is headed, you should take some time to talk to Red Hat at ITxpo in Orlando, FL the week of October 14.

What’s possible? You’d be surprised!

Does hybrid cloud seem unattainable? It’s not! Check out this video of the live demonstration of how Burr Sutter, Red Hat’s director of developer experience, and team moved workloads from a bare-metal server running Red Hat OpenStack Platform to Amazon Web Services (AWS), failing over to Microsoft Azure.

Red Hat VP and GM, Ranga Rangachari will be speaking on Hybrid Cloud - How to Start Small and Scale Fast on Wednesday.In this session, Rangachari will show how Red Hat works with leaders from financial services, public sector, and manufacturing to build a hybrid cloud platform that can leverage existing investments and set you up for future success with the open hybrid cloud.

Agile Integration is a key to driving Digital Transformation

So what if you go to the cloud? You still need to access data sources across the extended enterprise. It is not just about modernizing the applications but also about modernizing integration styles. Hello Agile Integration!

Red Hat VP & GM, Mike Piech will be speaking on Transforming your Business with Agile Integration. Piech will argue that growing workloads are causing dependence on APIs (application programming interfaces) and integration and you need a vision, approach, and supporting technologies for connecting microservices in a truly agile way. Join this session to learn how Agile Integration can help you take modern application development to the next level.

Innovation should scale to approach challenges

It is likely that the first thought that comes to your mind when you think about scaling is the cloud. That’s part of it, but business innovation should gobeyond just embracing hybrid cloud and cloud-native applications.

Enterprises may need to scale on multiple fronts —across regional boundaries, architectural domains, and the supply chain. And most importantly, it should be nurtured in an ecosystem that is open, continuous, automated, and more secure. Continuous innovation is occurring across business models, enterprise processes, architectural layers and technology environments.

For a deeper dive into this topic, regional chief solutions architect - central U.S. at Red Hat, E.G.Nadhan will share his thoughts on the art of sustaining open innovation at scale. Attend this session to see the steps you can take to fuel innovation as a compelling catalyst at the crossroads of technology, business and culture.

Time: 1:15 p.m. to 1:35 p.m.

Location: Stage 3 - Pacific Hall

Proof-points to make decisions with confidence

You can go to the cloud, you can integrate and even innovate, but you may still need the right culture and mindset across the enterprise to help realize meaningful business outcomes. Technology alone may not solve your business problems.

But by applying the principles of open culture to your organization, you may be able to turn disruption into opportunity. Red Hat’s Josh Ranoa will be on hand to take you through an interactive session that translates open principles to open practices—providing you with tactical exercises to use to break down barriers and catalyze innovation in your environment.

Date: Tuesday, Oct. 16

Time: 3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Location: Europe 11
