Stefano Picozzi — ANZ OpenShift SME, Red Hat, Inc.
The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) has a multicultural student population studying a diverse range of technology disciplines. It’s the perfect setting to adopt a polyglot Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) like Red Hat OpenShift. But successful adoption of new technology requires sensitively navigating the organizational change process.
In this session, you will learn how Red Hat has assisted organizations such as UTS solve this innovation challenge. We will describe examples such as how we made PaaS relevant by reinforcing the university’s distinctive model of practice-based learning.
We will cover an implementation methodology borne from the experience of introducing PaaS to organization such as UTS and others over the past 3 years. An approach that includes:
Creating a shared understanding across different constituencies.
Rallying around a clear action plan.
Delivering results quickly.
Part agile, part story, and part behavioral science, UTS was able to successfully go to pilot mode within 1 week.
