In a series of webinars over the coming months, Red Hat will showcase a variety of modernization opportunities from a technical and sociotechnical perspective. There are various cultural considerations that factor into digital transformation as well, and these are always evolving. (See Red Hat's Digital Transformation page for more detail on that topic.) The Application modernization imperative webinar series will focus specifically on how application architecture, development technologies, and deployment processes contribute to organizational change.
Our first webinar, Application modernization: Steps to take today, will examine the need for a cloud-native development strategy, reasons for moving to the cloud, and lessons learned from our customers. Containerization to cloud-native will cover how to launch modernization journeys through container platform onboarding and extend those gains through cloud-native practices and technologies. Cloud-native integration will examine integration from a cloud-native perspective, through the lens of financial services customers. DevOps for machine learning will address how to build intelligent applications by tying machine learning workloads into the same delivery pipelines that accelerate applications on container platforms. We’ll conclude with a webinar about a specific modernization project type—Intelligent customer engagement, a cloud native approach for real-time, customer-centric decisioning and automation. Improvements in digital customer engagement connect app modernization investments to business value and business performance.
1 - Application modernization - Steps to take today
In today’s digital-focused world, modernizing applications and advancing your cloud-native development strategy is key to distinguishing your business by delivering new services and applications. Although developing a cloud-native strategy is challenging, it is also essential to maintaining a competitive edge.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- Why you should modernize.
- What application modernization means today.
- Lessons learned from our customers.
- Pitfalls to avoid.
- Actionable next steps.
Live-event date: Tuesday, September 29, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET
2 - Beyond containerization: evolving applications to cloud-native
It’s not realistic or encouraged for any organization to go from zero to 100% of cloud-native maturity in a single push. Cloud-native is more of a journey where teams need to learn and improve from small experiments continuously until that rhythm becomes reliable. However, most organizations have a larger portfolio of applications that can improve significantly through incremental changes and modern tooling of a container platform.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- Incremental steps and benefits of containerizing applications for Kubernetes.
- Identifying when to re-architect applications to be cloud-native (and when not to).
- How to promote cloud-native behaviors within cross-functional teams.
- Measuring success for maturing cloud-native capabilities within your organization.
Live-event date: Thursday, October 8, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET
3 - Putting integration at the center of cloud-native architecture
Many organizations have taken to the cloud to provide efficient, scalable, and reliable platforms for ever-evolving business needs. However, without a cloud-native architecture, the cloud is just another place to deploy software riddled with the traditional enterprise software problems we've always had. Cloud-native integration on Red Hat® OpenShift® addresses your hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, and multi-tenant needs for modern software applications.
This webinar will cover:
- What application modernization looks like as you’re headed to the cloud.
- Architectural viewpoint and cloud-native customer stories.
- Retrofitting existing systems.
- Customer use cases.
Live-event date: Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET
4 - Integrating machine learning workloads into software delivery flow
This webinar will cover how to build intelligent applications by tying machine learning workloads into the same delivery pipelines that accelerate applications on container platforms.
Live-event date: Thursday, November 5, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET
5 - Modernization through intelligent customer engagement
The Red Hat Services solution: Intelligent Customer Engagement, makes interactions with customers over various devices smart and value-enhancing based on real-time opportunity identification, situational awareness, and deep customer understanding. IT departments need to make technological and architectural choices that achieve this impact. This webinar explores the cloud-native and architectural elements necessary to deliver an exceptional customer experience with real-time offers, recommendations, and options.
Live-event date: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET
On-demand event: All webinars available for one year after live-event date.
