Keynote Session Synopsis

The Power of Participation
Damien Wong, Vice President and General Manager, ASEAN, Red Hat
Participation and innovation are tightly linked. Helping communities and companies harness and share innovation beyond the sum of their individual members is a leadership and technology challenge of our time. Take artificial intelligence or machine learning. Instead of locking down knowledge and working in isolation, many companies realize that working together is the only way to solve complex problems. This principle of participation extends through business and technology.

At Red Hat, we see the power of participation every day in the world of open source, where user-driven innovation underlies the advances we are seeing in network evolution, cloud computing, Linux containers, mobile, and big data etc. It is because of this participative movement, which sets the pace of innovation, that open source has become a default choice in IT.

Open Source Powers Enterprise Digital Transformation
Dane Anderson, Vice President, Research Director & Region Manager Serving CIOs, Forrester
Open source innovation helps technology leaders embrace software architecture that is open, flexible, modular, scalable and secure to succeed in a digital world. Software innovation processes need to be collaborative, open – as in scaling beyond the traditional borders of organizations – and operating at the speed of the customer. This session will leverage Forrester insight and a hot-off-the press Asia Pacific survey of 450 CIOs to describe what is happening today and how technology leaders can map their strategies to the opportunity.

Enterprise Mobility: The First Step Towards Digital Transformation
Gerald Khor, Business Development, Mobile, APAC, Red Hat
Digital technologies such as enterprise mobility are a catalyst for new ways of doing business and are driving a wave of innovation and change for organizations. Enterprise mobility offers opportunities for companies to reinvent business processes, engage in new ways with customers, business partners and employees, to improve customer satisfaction and drive operational efficiency. However enterprise mobility can be challenging to IT as it demands more agile IT ecosystems to enable collaboration on faster, continuous development cycles, openness to new tool chains and architectures, and integration with existing core systems. This session will discuss how a mobile application platform could enable organizations to develop and deploy mobile apps in an agile and flexible manner, take advantage of open technologies and standard toolkits while centralizing control over security, back-end integrations, and policy management, to enable digital transformation with mobile.
