Clouds are becoming integral to many digital transformation strategies. But less than 20% of mission critical workloads have moved to public or private clouds.1 Why? Because moving to any cloud—public, private, hybrid, or multi—is complex.
Successful hybrid cloud strategies allow applications to move across environments; establish consistent security policies; and automate and manage resources. But technology alone doesn’t lead to this kind of digital transformation. It takes open architectures, processes, and cultures to build an IT system that not only brings true interoperability, consistency, and scalability to your clouds, but back into your datacenter’s bare-metal and virtual machines.
Join our virtual event, 3 open secrets to build better hybrid clouds, to learn why an open approach to architecture, culture, and process allows apps—and ideas—to flow more consistently from one place to another.
Live event date: Wednesday, September 4, 2019 | 10 a.m. ET

Open hybrid cloud: Bold goals for an open tomorrow
IT organizations need to quickly respond to change by providing a flexible IT architecture that allows applications and data to be deployed across multiple environments. Organizations need to benefit from every environment — without interruption or having to rebuild apps and retrain people — in order to innovate faster. A well-formulated cloud strategy for digital transformation is no longer a desired state - it is a mandate. And cloud is part of a comprehensive strategy to transform an organization into a digital leader.
Stefanie Chiras, Red Hat’s VP and general manager of the Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® Business Unit, will discuss how Red Hat is helping customers worldwide achieve digital leadership with an open hybrid cloud approach and architecture. She will illustrate how Red Hat’s open source development model and open hybrid cloud vision and portfolio helps organizations innovate and accomplish bold goals.
The secret to digital transformation is human connection
Digital transformation is no longer an option. Every organization is challenged to become a digital leader to survive and thrive. This is why businesses and governments are throwing trillions of dollars at new technologies. Organizations must build and deliver exciting new software applications. They must continuously innovate, move quickly, adapt, and stay ahead of the never-ending onslaught of digital data, experiences, and channels.
These demands have led to the rise of cloud computing, open source technologies, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and many other innovations. However, more than half of all new software or IT projects still fail. That’s because technology alone does not solve digital transformation. It doesn’t address the fundamental issues that inhibit or enable transformational success—and the most critical dependency: people. Join Margaret Dawson as she reveals the elements of digital transformation that technology can’t resolve and why human connection is critical to our success.
Creating application environments in open hybrid clouds
In the race to digitally transform, organizations are building applications that span many environments. But this creates a complex patchwork system of one-off solutions that teams have to navigate. The basic challenge of this is to bring consistency to an environment where change is constant.
Solving this challenge requires experimentation with and adoption of container-based app development. New and legacy workloads should be able to be deployed across any infrastructure while staying connected and compliant. And since everyone is looking to clouds for answers, you need to learn how to build an ideal cloud-native app environment. Join James Falkner as he explains how Red Hat and its customers are already building innovative cloud-native environments to solve the challenge of constant change in modern business.
