A panel discussion with Red Hat leaders on business continuity: People, process, and technology for now and always

Watch recording from April 23, 2020

During this period of global insecurity, it’s critical that we keep our businesses and governments  protected and productive. It’s not enough to have the right technological solutions—organizations must maintain relationships and have methods of support that can adapt to rapid change. Our people, our processes, and our technology helped us solve difficult problems in the past. This webinar will detail how these 3 elements have come together to address new challenges introduced by COVID-19, faster than ever before.

In this panel discussion, Red Hat® leaders and the CEO of BlueJeans Network, a trusted Red Hat vendor, share how they’re executing on business continuity plans during COVID-19. They provide their personal experiences with:

  • Architecting IT to withstand failover, disruptions, and rapid scaling.
  • Using technology to support customers and partners.
  • Facilitating virtual communication while withstanding scale and data security pressures.
  • Communicating and collaborating with IT vendors for support.

Join us for a candid panel discussion and Q&A session on business continuity.
