Many organizations are facing a difficult challenge to automate their systems. They worry it will require ample resources to write custom code they think is required.
Fortunately, there is another option. Organizations can use Red Hat® Ansible® Automation to write simple task descriptions that even new team members can understand the first time. Using Ansible Automation saves upfront costs and makes it easier to react to change over time.
In this webinar, we will discuss how to:
> Look at an app and its dependencies to construct a common framework for deployment.
> Deploy multitier applications reliably and consistently, all from a singular common framework.
> Configure services and push application artifacts from a common system.

Ansible's simple automation framework means that previously isolated network administrators can finally speak the same language of automation as the rest of the IT organization, extending the capabilities of Ansible to include native support for both legacy and open network infrastructure devices. Network devices and systems can now be included in an organization's overall automation strategy for a holistic approach to application workload management.
Businesses constantly face the pressure to increase efficiency, agility, and innovation while adhering to compliance standards and regulations. As demand grows to respond faster to market changes, even the most skilled IT teams are challenged.

Security is hard. We know what needs to be done, but configuring systems and applications, especially thousands of them, to make life more difficult for attackers is daunting. Learn to use the agentless, push-based power of Red Hat Ansible Automation to apply and enforce security standards that adapt to meet internal and external security guidelines.

We come from a long history of building software the "release early, release often" way. To do it right, automation is key–but so is simplicity. Learn how to integrate Red Hat Ansible Tower with Jenkins to provide the full chain of continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) in an integrated, automated fashion covering the entire stack.
Adam Miller, Ansible Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat
Red Hat Ansible Automation is simple and powerful. It gives you the power to deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework. You can configure needed services as well as push application artifacts from one common system. In this session, you will learn how to provision cloud resources with Ansible Automation. This session uses Microsoft Azure as the example, but you can also use Ansible Automation to provision cloud resources for other cloud platforms, such as Google, AWS, and OpenStack.
John Spinks, Principal Technical Marketing Manager, Red Hat
Using Red Hat Satellite to manage your Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments has never been easier. See how you can monitor existing deployments for risk and fix critical issues before they can cause downtime.
Bill Nottingham, Senior Principal Product Manager, Red Hat
Ansible Playbooks are pretty simple—you run Ansible as a particular user, and it uses your credentials. This process is great for automating quickly, but what if you want to delegate automation to someone else to run as needed? That's where Red Hat Ansible Tower can help. In this session, you will learn how Ansible Tower manages users and teams, how you can assign permissions to each, and how these permissions help you use automation to bring together different teams.

In a hybrid infrastructure, it is often difficult and time consuming to maintain visibility, control, security, governance, and compliance. In this session, you’ll learn how a combination of Red Hat Ansible Automation, Red Hat Satellite, Red Hat Insights, and OpenSCAP can help you with these challenges by automating security and compliance.
Specifically, you’ll learn how to: Provision a security-compliant host. Perform automated audit scans to quickly detect and automatically remediate security and compliance issues. Proactively identify and remediate security threats with predictive analytics. Implement both infrastructure and security as code. Implement consistent and automated patch and configuration management. Centralize management of your hybrid infrastructure for continuous security and monitoring.

Red Hat Ansible Automation, automates your switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers and more. In this session, learn how network devices and systems can now be included in an organization's overall automation strategy for a holistic approach to automating IT infrastructure. We'll cover Ansible Automation throughout the entire production life cycle, including:
- Automating configuration of the network stack from system to access to core services.
- Testing and validating existing network states.
- Continuously checking for network configuration drift to maintain compliance.
It's hard to find a homogeneous IT stack nowadays. You may have a Linux server farm, but an AD cluster providing identity. Or you have a cross-platform build environment that builds your software for multiple different targets. Your management and automation tools need to be able to handle multiple, vastly different targets - Linux, Unix, networking, cloud services, and Windows.
Walter Bentley, Automation Practice Lead, Red Hat Consulting
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.
Belkacem Moussouni, Automation Business Development Lead, Red Hat
Red Hat Ansible Automation is powerful—so powerful that it automates more than just your Linux environment. It can also automate your Windows environment, your network, your cloud, and more.

Increasingly, enterprise IT organizations are shifting workloads to run in hybrid cloud architectures using a mix of public cloud services and dedicated datacenter resources. New applications are being written and constantly updated using agile methods supported by microservices and containers. Data integration and business process transformation are operational imperatives as enterprises create new information-driven services and customer engagement models. In this hybrid cloud era, the stability and security of core enterprise platforms is critical.
Whether deployed on bare metal, a managed cloud service, or on public cloud infrastructure, IT ops teams need to maintain consistent operating system configurations, patches, security policies, and container images. Speed, agility, and security are crucial, as are open source management platforms and programmatic policy-driven approaches. In this keynote, you will learn 5 important ways that your IT operations team must use analytics and automation to ensure future hybrid cloud success.
