A recent Gartner report found that almost half of 388 CEOs and senior business leaders surveyed are being challenged by their board of directors to make progress in digital business, and IDC recently forecast $1.2 trillion in worldwide spending on digital transformation initiatives this calendar year. Digital transformation is high on many business agendas and should be top of mind for the channel too. At Red Hat, we have developed a portfolio rich in technologies well-suited to the needs of customers looking to get started with digital transformation and hybrid cloud. In many cases our partners are right alongside us, offering customers the tools and strategic advice to help make that digital journey successfully from beginning to end.
This year, the Red Hat EMEA Partner Conference will be taking place in Frankfurt, from 18-21 June. The conference offers up many opportunities for partners to network, hone their technical knowledge and discover more about IoT, hybrid cloud, DevOps, containers, digital transformation strategies and much more, and, of course, how open source can drive innovation across these areas.
The conference is tailored to both business and technical delegates, offering up a range of activities for partners to engage, including hands-on labs, a contingent of free-of-charge Red Hat training exams, break-out sessions on a wide range of topics, and a Red Hat Developer Hackathon to demonstrate the power of Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Mobile and Red Hat JBoss Middleware developer tools.
We welcome you to take part – if you would like to join us this year, then you can register for Partner Conference here.
We can’t wait to see you there!
