Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

How to scale our most constrained resources: The Brent problem

Nearly every organization has limitations when it comes to adding additional budget and staff. There seem to be a few people who have so much knowledge that we find them tied up in nearly every project and incident. In The Phoenix Project, these concepts are embedded in the character Brent. Brent is the person that knows how to do everything, is responsive to everyone, and generally the most helpful individual in the room. As a result, Brent becomes a bottleneck for all work endeavors.

How do we begin to more effectively scale these resources and free up our fellow team members? Kevin Behr, co-author of the best selling book, The Phoenix Project, will discuss key elements of the Theory of Constraints and basic steps of constraint management. Learn how to free up those "impossible to get" minds by recognizing the sounds and using key intervention questions to bring clarity and get things moving.

  • Improve continuously or lose to shadow IT Nov 10 2020 6:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    Kevin Behr, Global Sr Director, Global Transformation Office & Yasir Syeed, NA Public Sector Transformation @ Red Hat
    In many IT organizations the notion of improvement is often tied to a capital project. High- performing organizations create consistent learning and challenge at the edge, with no additional budget or staff. The secret? The power of the improvement kata pioneered at Toyota, which is a proven methodology for continuous improvement that can be used by organizations.

    Learn how it is possible to improve nearly every process and outcome everyday. We will discuss a very simple set of tools designed to increase our decision-making capabilities, navigate uncertainty with a scientific approach, and reignite purpose and passion in idle management with a new focus on developing thinking and judgment versus telling people what to do.

    This session will be presented by Yasir Syeed North American Public Sector Transformation Office, Red Hat and Kevin Behr Global Senior Director, Global Transformation Office, Red Hat; co-author, The Phoenix Project

  • When change management stops change: How to increase velocity and reduce risk Nov 3 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kevin Behr, Global Sr Director, Global Transformation Office & Yasir Syeed, NA Public Sector Transformation @ 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.

They then discuss an application modernization journey involving (1) Identification of monolithic applications, (2) Converting one or more pieces of the monolith into microservices and (3) Running the decomposed monolith and newly created microservices in VMs and Containers alongside one another on Red Hat OpenShift. They close with a demonstration of Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization highlighting the above concepts.
  • Using Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh to manage complex deployments Recorded: Sep 23 2020 36 mins
    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-driven insights with AI at the edge Recorded: Sep 23 2020 29 mins
    Abhinav Joshi and Rosa Guntrip, Red Hat
    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.

  • Event-driven architecture evolves to the cloud Recorded: Sep 23 2020 28 mins
    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.
  • Top 3 ways to improve remote developer productivity Recorded: Sep 23 2020 26 mins
    Steve Speicher, Director of Developer Product, OpenShift, Red Hat
    Developers often have to spend days or weeks transitioning between projects. Join this session to find out how to get a development environment ready in minutes. We will also present ways to jump into running applications, understand problems, and develop methods for resolving them quickly.

    This session will help you manage the challenges of cloud-native work with containerized applications and Kubernetes.
  • How serverless can simplify application modernization Recorded: Sep 23 2020 41 mins
    William "Markito" Oliveira, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, OpenShift, Red Hat
    Serverless architectures and technologies are often perceived as requiring big changes in application design and development. Even without massive overhaul, there are rich opportunities to modernize and migrate legacy applications by running them "as-is," but with serverless containers.

    Come to this session to find out how the combination of Knative, a Kubernetes-native serverless platform, and Quarkus, our container-first approach to Java, help organizations transform application delivery and integration practices to deliver modern event-driven applications.
