Does your organization have a digital transformation strategy yet? Digital mavens like and Airbnb are transforming traditional industries such as transport and hospitality, and incumbents across industries are being challenged by creative, digitally-enabled upstarts.
In 2017, digital business transformation has become a necessity. It is driven by sweeping changes all around us – from both customer and employee expectations to a highly competitive landscape with disruption as a constant.
In the information age, no organization can escape from the impact of digital disruption. It is disrupting all industries, albeit at different rates. The biggest disruptive force, commonly cited by business leaders we’ve spoken to, is digital innovation by competitors.
The path to digital can be truly rewarding or relentless. By waiting to respond to a rivals’ move, companies can risk making themselves vulnerable to being out-innovated by the more proactive competitors.

Thursday’s sessions shared how enterprises can build private clouds with Red Hat® OpenStack® Platform and Red Hat CloudForms, kick off digital transformation with containers, and automate their infrastructures with Ansible by Red Hat and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
