Enterprise IT needs are evolving at breakneck speed and are becoming critical to business success. Organizations now face the need to deliver and evolve their software infrastructure more quickly and effectively than ever before. At this event we’ll cover the tools and techniques that we’ve seen lead to success amongst Red Hat’s most successful clients. In particular we’ll focus on how APIs combined with Containers and Integration together create highly effective software systems.

We will also discuss how APIs can be used to transform the internal IT landscape, how they combine with containers for effective micro services strategies and how they fit with integration technologies. The material will cover architecture, technology and lessons from the field with customer examples.

After the presentation, please stay and join your peers for food and drinks served poolside (weather permitting).

All attendees will also be entered for a chance to win an Amazon Echo.
