Get Ready & Go Faster with powerful strategies & cutting-edge technologies

Red Hat and Intel invite you to join us, your peers, and IT industry leaders at our 5th annual Red Hat Day on June 20th at The Sheraton Center Hotel in Montreal.

In response to increasing competitive pressures, businesses are requiring technology capabilities to not only accelerate the constant delivery of differentiated value to the market, but also need greater agility to adapt to ever-changing market conditions, fundamentally transforming internal processes, tooling, architectures and corporate culture.  As technology rapidly evolves, businesses must innovate constantly through rapid development, continuous delivery, modernized applications and operations while running their infrastructure efficiently. At Red Hat Day, we’ll explore how Canadian organizations can get ready and go faster by adopting powerful strategies and cutting-edge technologies while improving the security and flexibility of the enterprise.



  • CXO’s and VP’s
  • Directors
  • IT Managers
  • Architects
  • Infrastructure Administrators
  •  Developers


  • How enterprises can fully embrace Open, Hybrid Cloud and Open Source to maximize agility, security, performance, and total cost of ownership.
  • How to utilize DevOps tooling using next generation application platforms (OpenShift) and automation technology (Ansible).
  • How to build a more agile IT eco-system with Red Hat’s Innovation Labs - an on-site residency to assist your organization with DevOps, modern application architectures, containers and microservices.

After these informative discussions, we would like you to join us for a networking happy hour where you will have the opportunity to discuss with your peers and Red Hat experts on how to stay ahead of the curve.
