Mark your calendars for our featured speakers
Each year, people from around the world come together for a high-energy week of innovation, education and collaboration and this year will be no different. Attendees will experience visionary technology industry keynotes featuring Red Hat executives and industry leaders, as well as many of our customers and partners sharing real stories of working with Red Hat products.
This year’s keynotes will feature Red Hat executives including President and CEO Matt Hicks, CTO Chris Wright, Senior Vice President of Partner Ecosystem Success Stefanie Chiras, and Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Ashesh Badani. Red Hat will team up with our customers and partners including Microsoft, AWS, Barclays, ABB, Ericsson and more, to discuss how advancements in open innovation and hybrid cloud can help your business overcome IT challenges and move forward. Along with the keynotes, you won’t want to miss the exciting demos they’ll be showcasing on stage.
This year, we’ll also be bringing AnsibleFest to Red Hat Summit, providing in-depth automation content and a look at what’s next in automation. Join Director of Product Marketing for Ansible Automation Kaete Piccirilli and other Red Hat experts for the AnsibleFest keynote: The automation moment — and beyond.
