Red Hat at The EU Open Source Policy Summit 2021

Rivedi il webinar del 5 febbraio 2021


Red Hat & Linux Foundation sponsor the EU Open Source Policy Summit 2021

OpenForum Europe, with sponsorship from Red Hat and The Linux Foundation, hosts The EU Open Source Policy Summit 2021, an event that aims to build bridges and encourage exchanges between the vast Open Source community and European policymakers.

At this virtual event, we will hear representatives from the many stakeholders working at the intersection of politics and technology. We look forward to convening this conversation at this critical juncture as discussions of Open Source move into a deeper understanding of the strategic role Open Source software and hardware will play in Europe’s digital future.

At Red Hat, our code is what drives us. It defines us. It guides every step we take.

Only an open approach to Hybrid Cloud can give you the speed, stability and scale you need today and will rely on tomorrow.  At Red Hat we are setting the standard for what hybrid cloud can be and do, and with our flexible portfolio your organization can take the next defining step.

Digital transformation can mean a lot of different things. But no matter where your organization is in the process, Red Hat can help you understand every facet of change and help you achieve your goals. Digital transformation is a key component of the EU Recovery Programme.

Edge computing requires many pieces of technology; only an open approach to hybrid cloud infrastructure can give you the flexibility and freedom you need.  

An example of where edge meets the citizen is in smart cities.  It makes sense to have computing capabilities as close to the data being collected as possible, not only is this more efficient, in the case of human health and environmental monitoring, traffic management and security, its also critical.
