IT Automation and Management: Optimize, Integrate, Innovate

Watch recording from 13 de fevereiro de 2019

Red Hat Virtual Event

As organizations move to the cloud, IT teams learn to use new tools—often while keeping their current system as they get the new one up to speed. That means more tools and deployments to monitor, to update, and to keep running smoothly. Proper management and automation helps you keep an eye on the big picture—and frees you to focus on creating value.

"IT Management: Optimize, Automate, Innovate" will feature industry leaders discussing infrastructure and cloud management best practices, and what automation tools will help you sustainably scale. Join us on February 13 to hear the latest on deploying, optimizing, updating, and automating IT environments.
 

LIVE-EVENT DATE: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 | 11 a.m. ET

ON-DEMAND DATE: Available for one year afterward.

5 strategies for effective IT operations in a hybrid cloud world

Pete Cruz, manager, Hybrid Cloud Management Product Marketing, Red Hat

Increasingly, enterprise IT organizations are shifting workloads to run in hybrid cloud architectures using a mix of public cloud services and dedicated datacenter resources. New applications are being written and constantly updated using agile methods supported by microservices and containers. Data integration and business process transformation are operational imperatives as enterprises create new information-driven services and customer engagement models. In this hybrid cloud era, the stability and security of core enterprise platforms is critical. Whether deployed on bare metal, a managed cloud service, or on public cloud infrastructure, IT ops teams need to maintain consistent operating system configurations, patches, security policies, and container images. Speed, agility, and security are crucial, as are open source management platforms and programmatic policy-driven approaches. In this keynote, you will learn 5 important ways that your IT operations team must use analytics and automation to ensure future hybrid cloud success.

Putting the community into enterprise automation: Lessons from Red Hat’s communities of practice

Putting the community into enterprise automation: Lessons from Red Hat’s communities of practice

Walter Bentley, Automation practice lead, Red Hat Consulting

Every solution starts with sharing a problem. At Red Hat, when we talk about open source, we're talking about a proven way of collaborating to create technology—the freedom to see the code, to learn from it, to ask questions and offer improvements. This represents the open source way. However, bringing together people in your organization to collaborate is often easier said than done. At Red Hat, we’ve created communities of practice (COP) to help our own people collaborate, especially on new and emerging technologies—including automation. During this session, you’ll learn how to build your own automation community of practice in your organization. The session will cover topics like: What is a COP and why should you build one. How to get started. How to get people to participate. How to grow the community.

Privilege delegation with Red Hat Ansible Tower — what it is and why it's important

Bill Nottingham, Senior principal product manager, Red Hat

Ansible Playbooks are pretty simple—you run Ansible as a particular user, and it uses your credentials. This process is great for automating quickly, but what if you want to delegate automation to someone else to run as needed? That's where Red Hat Ansible Tower can help. In this session, you will learn how Ansible Tower manages users and teams, how you can assign permissions to each, and how these permissions help you use automation to bring together different teams.
