  • Digital transformation from industry leaders' eyes: Harvard Business Review Recorded: Dec 10 2018 25 mins
    Marty Wesley, Portfolio Marketing Manager, Red Hat
    Digital transformation may be a trite catch-all phrase for customers of varying sizes and challenges, but its implications are real. In a recent Harvard Business Review report (published Aug 2018), only 13% of respondents rated their ability to confront digital transformation as very effective. The vast majority of respondents understand its implications and relate to the importance of addressing technology, process, and culture in parallel, but struggle to implement strategies to address it, with culture as the leading inhibitor.

    In this session, we’ll discuss what industry leaders consider critical digital transformation capabilities, where organizations are struggling with adoption, what success looks like, and how many organizations are measuring the efficacy of efforts.

  • How to Survive the Upcoming Java Cost Tsunami Recorded: Nov 27 2018 35 mins
    Kevin Phillips, Middleware Solutions Sales Specialist, Red Hat.
    Oracle documentation indicates that effective January 20, 2019 access to OracleJDK for production use is limited to customers with a support contract. This will impact production use of Java applications as well as the ability to get patch updates and support. Most customers have not planned for this un-budgeted expense which could sink your IT budget. Fortunately, there is an alternative which could be implemented for little or no additional cost.

    Customers who don't act (by either purchasing OracleJDK or moving to an alternative) could expose themselves to risk.

    Join Red Hat to learn about Red Hat’s lifeline for Java workloads - the OpenJDK.

    Don’t wait – January 20th is less that 3 months away.
  • Evolution of integration and microservices patterns with Istio service mesh Recorded: Nov 20 2018 27 mins
    Christian Posta, Chief Architect, Red Hat
    As we build distributed systems on cloud platforms (like Kubernetes, or public clouds), we must understand where the responsibility of the developer teams lies with respect to the platform. The platform provides some useful abstractions to make us more productive, but the correctness and safety of our applications and business requirements is still the responsibility of the developer and development teams. Tools like Istio, and service mesh in general, solve for some difficult problems like observability, security, and resilience and are highly encouraged for cloud-native application deployments. In this talk, we'll take a look at how Istio can help build resilient distributed-systems applications, but we'll also be very specific about Istio's boundaries and where application frameworks built for integrating systems like Apache Camel fit into the picture. One does not remove the need for the other.

  • Advancing IT modernization through secure container development and deployment Recorded: Sep 27 2018 48 mins
    Joe Wood, Senior Consulting Architect, Red Hat. Khary Mendez, Principal Consultant, Red Hat
    In a changing IT world, speed and security are key to a successful hybrid cloud operation. Many government organizations are facing the challenge of migrating their IT systems into a more dynamic and distributed environment that include public clouds, private clouds, legacy systems, and a mix of security and policy concerns. This era brings new software development and deployment challenges and opportunities.

    A first step in this transition is to discover and implement a proper DevOps-driven pipeline that incorporates the build process, as well as unit and security testing on every commit by developers. Next, new containerized workloads need to be deployed on a secure, distributed, and flexible container management platform to accelerate the agencies needs.

    Join this webinar to learn how Red Hat products and consulting can help in this transition. We'll discuss the trends in DevOps and advanced open deployment including:

    -Understanding the shift in development and deployment.
    -Building a Jenkins pipeline to include security on every commit.
    -Advancements and benefits in container platform runtime via the CRI-O.

    We'll explore these topics in the context of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat Middleware, and Red Hat Consulting.
