How to architect a cloud-native application environment
Developing applications that are reactive, event-driven, and polyglot are required for today's application architecture.
While cloud infrastructure and container or Kubernetes solutions - such as Red Hat® OpenStack® Platform and Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform - provide a robust infrastructure foundation for distributed environments, similar seamless application services require building applications that take full advantage of such an infrastructure.
In this webinar, we’ll demo how Red Hat's distributed application environment architecture is laid out and provide a blueprint for successfully creating applications at scale. You’ll be able to participate in the demo using your mobile phone or browser and help rescue 100s of lives.

Bob Jones, Application Development Senior Consultant, Red Hat
Being able to take a feature from inception to production as quickly as possible is critical to staying ahead in today’s market. As applications become finer-grained and highly distributed, continuous deployment strategies become more complex. How can we swiftly deploy application features to our customers without introducing additional risk?
Data generated from billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices at factories, city streets, hospitals, vehicles, and retail stores can generate real-time insights that organizations can use to achieve their business objectives. Responsive applications that use artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge and that are built on modern, cloud-native technologies can accelerate achieving these business goals.
This session will provide insights into use cases, technical and operational capabilities required for AI at the edge, execution challenges, and how cloud-native technologies and methodologies like containers, Kubernetes, and DevOps can help solve critical business challenges. We will also showcase an innovative solution powered by Red Hat® OpenShift®, complementary products in the Red Hat portfolio, and our independent software vendor (ISV) partner ecosystem.

David Codelli, Senior Principal Marketing Manager, Red Hat
As businesses evolve their data strategy in response to industry dynamics, most are continuously processing streams of events, rather than traditional methods of batching or synchronously exchanging data. However, successful stream processing relies on moving to an event-driven architecture (EDA). EDA is not a new concept and development platforms have used EDA structures for fifty years. Just as runtime platforms have evolved from single machines, to client servers, to three-tiered architecture, and now to container management systems, the EDA mechanisms that modern developers use to build efficient, responsive applications have also changed.
This session will highlight new methods and key roles Apache Kafka, Quarkus, Knative, and Change Data Capture play in serving the modern developer.
Steve Speicher, Director of Developer Product, OpenShift, Red Hat

Jabe Bloom, Red Hat, SocioTechnical Systems Thinker | Speaker | Critical Irritant | Transition Designer
Current ways of thinking about software development tend to suggest a (false) dichotomy between Development and Operations. Many organizations are trapped in a pattern that imagines you can either be efficient or effective. However, if efficiency and effectiveness are considered mutually exclusive (that is, you cannot drive both at the same time), it is extremely difficult to drive differentiation and therefore, unique competitive advantage. So how do you accelerate differentiation, while creating resilience and driving scale? The problem isn’t choosing between these initial logics, but instead expanding the way we understand IT works with a third economy: scope.
During this session, Jabe Bloom from Red Hat’s Global Transformation Office will discuss the Three Economies model. Through the three economies - differentiation, scale, and scope - this efficiency and effectiveness paradox needn’t be paradoxical. Organizations can pursue both forms of value (differentiation and scale), by extending their economic decision making to include a third way of thinking about value (scope). You’ll walk away with an understanding of how to adopt the Three Economies model in order to transform your organization.
Jason Lamb, Cloud / Software-Defined Infrastructure Technology Solutions Strategist, Intel
Digital transformation has 2 different kinds of impacts. One is within the organization as it increases its digital footprint. The other is the impact to that organization as it interacts with other transforming businesses.
In today's environment, it’s critical for organizations to navigate their transformations both within, and without. We’ll discuss the dual impacts on IT organizations of the current societal digital transformation, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic response. We’ll share guidelines to consider for managing a datacenter transformation strategy in this new era, even as we look to define the “new normal” moving forward.
Red Hat OpenShift is a container application platform that brings containers and Kubernetes to the enterprise. Regardless of your applications architecture, OpenShift lets you easily and quickly build, develop, and deploy in nearly any infrastructure, public or private.
Alan Webber, Program VP, Customer Experience, IDC and Ken Johnson,VP, Application Services Business Unit, Red Hat

We did not invent brakes merely to stop cars. Change management is a process that is designed to increase change velocity and reduce risk. In this session, Kevin Behr, co-author of the best selling book, “The Phoenix Project,” will show that this key process area and associated rationale are a major determinant of organizational throughput and operational excellence. More people are frustrated with managing changes to their infrastructure and applications and often see the activity as annoying, or even worse, impeding progress.
All of our collective work results in change, so let’s get the most out of it by understanding that we designed brakes to allow us to go faster. Stop driving with your foot on the brake, and rather use those brakes to achieve a higher velocity of successful changes. You’ll walk away with key metrics that will illuminate the process, and the opportunity to self reflect on how you are measuring change and progress.

Sometimes enterprise technology seems like a simple solution to a complicated problem. Kubernetes–the open source platform that automates Linux® container operations–eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications. But can Kubernetes by itself (also known as vanilla Kubernetes) solve the problem of building cloud-native, container-based applications and deploying them across a hybrid and multicloud world?
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
• Using containers and Kubernetes for digital transformation.
• Figuring out what you need above a Kubernetes layer for a comprehensive container solution.
• Answering 6 questions to understand any do-it-yourself container platform build.
