How a modern IT infrastructure can make disruption an opportunity
In this session you’ll learn
•The product and solutions that support exist within the pillars
•The benefits of the pillars working together
•What problems are being solved
Technology is part of everything we interact with. Unfortunately, while technology brings many innovative changes, it can also disrupt or destroy industries—take Uber for example. They completely transformed the transportation industry. Turning everyone into a taxi driver with the download of an app.
This disruption is usually gradual, but established industry competitors rarely have the foresight to predict it. Industries must be aware of new business models and adapt quickly—or risk failure. Fully transforming into an agile, responsive organization requires changing people, processes, and technology. To achieve this digital transformation, you need a modern IT infrastructure with unified management and automation to take advantage of cloud resources, meet demand for new and improved applications, and support new ways of working.
Together, Intel and Red Hat bring products to market faster, provide more value from the technology and achieve amazing security features, performance, and reliability in applications. Explore the future of what Intel and Red Hat have to offer.

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.
