Taking A Design Approach to Bridge DevOps and Business Automation
Custom software development and business automation have historically provided 2 equal but distinct paths to bring high-quality products to market. Each has its own benefits and trade-offs. Business process management (BPM) and business rules management systems (BRMS) provide a lightweight, modular platform that can be tailored for your organizational structure and technical architecture.
Red Hat® Consulting offers a Business Automation Practice—a design model that combines the rigor and security of software development with the speed and accessibility of business automation technology. The result? Businesses can develop better products, more quickly and fully evolve with DevOps.

Automation is a must-have capability for modern enterprise IT. As the automation market is maturing, Ansible is creating new possibilities for scale, collaboration, and speed. Listen to the insights on the continued evolution Ansible Automation.
Julio Villarreal Pelegrino, Chief Architect, Red Hat
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.

In the world of containers and DevOps, Docker has become the most common standard to perform all the necessary operations around registries, images, and containers. With the introduction of the CRI-O project, we see a container engine that is a stable and security-focused platform for running Open Container Initiative (OCI) compatible runtimes instead of traditional Docker.
To fully visualize the vast landscape of container technology, a solid understanding of the tools and their uses is essential. For example, Buildah offers simple container creation with or without a Dockerfile. With the power of Ansible®, you can extend the power of tools like Buildah to deploy your application on OpenShift®.
In this session, we’ll cover:
How to manage non-Docker container images.
How to use Ansible Playbooks with Buildah and Skopeo to manage image and registry operations.
The advantages the CRI-O project can provide your organization.
In the past, quarterly production deployments took place overnight with a team of people on call to get a release working. Deployments were expensive, complex, inconsistent, and frustrating on so many levels.
Since then, IT teams have implemented automation solutions such as Red HatⓇ AnsibleⓇ Automation to help make deployments easier, faster, and more consistent. Ansible Automation can take some time to master, but learning the tool is seldom a problem for most organizations.
There are, however, other challenges organizations might encounter when implementing an automation solution. For example, technical, process, and behavioral challenges can impact their ability to fully benefit from an automation solution.
In this session, we will offer some best practices to cut through these challenges and turn your project into a success, including:
•The importance of standards.
•Why naming matters.
•Failing early, failing fast, and becoming a learning organization
Colin McCarthy, Senior Solutions Architect, Red Hat
Introducing automation into your security practices is easy, but planning is required to ensure to implement it in production and at scale. Learn how to architect your Security Automation practice with Ansible, future-proofing its usage to speed up threat analysis and perform remediations.

Kubernetes is an open source project originally developed at Google and now managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). It was established as the de facto open source standard for container orchestration in 2017. For those new to the topic, the number of resources available can be overwhelming.
Join this webinar to learn:
•A brief history of container orchestration.
•What you need to know to get started.
•How Kubernetes has evolved since it was first released in 2015.
•Possible pitfalls to keep in mind as the project progresses.

Modern application development and maintenance using microservices architecture, containerized infrastructure, and DevOps principles is much more effective than legacy methods.
In this webinar learn how to modernize an existing legacy application to a modern platform like WildFly Swarm on Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform, using modern development processes with pipeline development
Duncan Doyle, Technical Marketing Manager, Red Hat
Being able to create and easily re-define business rules is a competitive advantage in today's quickly-changing environment. Business rules are at the heart of every organization’s operations. They define the laws and regulations to which the organization is bound, they drive business process decisions, and they determine pricing of products and services.
Microservices modularize monoliths into small services with open and standard interfaces that can be individually implemented, deployed and scaled. Containers provide the environment where microservices operate (OS, runtime, libraries, configuration).
Join this webinar to see how Red Hat® JBoss® BRMS and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform:
- Help you quickly extract documented or implicit business rules and explicitly define them with a standard and centrally managed rules language.
- Let you package those explicitly defined rules into containers and deploy them as microservices.
Burr Sutter, Director of Developer Experience, Red Hat
Feeling bludgeoned by bullhorn messaging suggesting your monolithic behemoth should be put down (or sliced up) to make way for microservices? Without question, 'unicorn-style' microservices are the super-nova-hot flavor of the day, but what if teaching your tried and true monolith to be a nimble, fast-dancing elephant meant you could deploy every week versus every 6 to 9 months?
For most enterprises, weekly deployments (or something close) would fundamentally transform not only operations and business results, but also the inherent value of developers willing to step up to lead the dance lessons.
See beyond the hype to understand the deployment model your business case actually demands, and if weekly deployments courtesy of a dancing (or flying!) elephant fit the bill, love the one you're with as you lead the organization's journey to digital transformation!

Given the sheer pace of innovation and ever-increasing competition in today’s marketplace, organizations are leaning on the CIO more than ever before to lead a lean, agile enterprise. For IT teams, this has translated into delivering faster, at greater scale, and more efficiently.
These same demands have also catalyzed a demand for new applications that are delivered both more nimbly and more quickly. This places further stress on the IT Operations team, as they are now tasked with providing a scalable, on-demand infrastructure that can service both developers and the business.
As these expectations converge, IT leaders can no longer focus solely on a management strategy – they must also consider, “What is our automation strategy?” Red Hat and Intel are bring together senior IT executives from across industries for this webinar: Driving Change in IT Ops through Automation. Join us for a brief presentation that will explore how automation can help transform IT operations for the next generation of IT management, followed by a panel of senior IT executives as they discuss the challenges and best practices related to these topics and more.

Assessing performance of a general and flexible business process management (BPM) products and solutions is challenging. It's notoriously difficult to assess, measure, and accurately predict how a product or solution will scale under normal use and load. Each user's unique business requirements and specific implementation design must be taken into account.
Red Hat has partnered with Vizuri, an IT consulting firm, to provide you with a performance test tool for any BPM framework or process server. The BPM performance test tool can be used to model and assess many different scenarios simulating a set of reusable resources. The results will be a uniform performance evaluation that accounts for as much end-user process design and implementation variability as feasible.
Join this webcast to learn more about this tool through a case study on Red Hat® JBoss® BPM Suite.
