How to Break Down Barriers to Form High-Performing Teams
In this Red Hat Consulting whiteboard video, Matt Takane and Jerry Becker show you a fun exercise called Agile Faces, that you can use to build your team into a trusting and more cohesive delivery machine.
Agile Faces demonstrates the power of building a single product together as a new team, reinforces name recognition, and is an interactive way to facilitate getting to know more about your team members.
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 Platform to help make deployments easier, faster, and more consistent. Ansible Automation can take some time to learn, but learning the tool is seldom a problem for most organizations.
There are, however, other challenges that organizations might encounter when implementing an automation solution. Both technical and cultural challenges can impact their ability to fully benefit from an automation solution.
In this session, we’ll focus on the cultural transformation aspect of automation and offer some best practices to cut through these challenges, including:
-- Defining a vision.
-- Defining automation.
-- Building a feedback loop.
-- Becoming a learning organization.
John Walter, Solutions Architect, Training and Certification, Red Hat
Administrators and developers are increasingly seeking ways to improve application time to market and improve maintainability. Containers and Red Hat® OpenShift® have quickly become the de facto solution for agile development and application deployment.
Red Hat Training has developed a course that provides the gateway to container adoption by understanding the potential of DevOps using a container-based architecture. Orchestrating a container-based architecture with Kubernetes and Red Hat® OpenShift® improves application reliability and scalability, decreases developer overhead, and facilitates continuous integration and continuous deployment.
In this webinar, our expert will cover:
• An overview of container and OpenShift architecture.
• How to manage containers and container images.
• Deploying containerized applications with Red Hat OpenShift.
• An outline of Red Hat OpenShift training offerings.
Join us to establish the foundation needed to advance to Red Hat OpenShift development or administration.
Walter Bentley, Automation Practice Lead, Red Hat Consulting
Organizations look to adopt automation to eliminate the time and errors associated with manual configuration processes. Enterprise-wide automation is advantageous because of the scalability and agility it can provide, accelerating outcomes with consistent and repeatable processes that support the evolution of DevOps culture.
While the promise of enterprise-wide automation is appealing, without well-defined tooling and streamlined processes, the benefits quickly erode from constant change and lack of clarity. During this session, we’ll discuss a journey map approach to implementing automation with Ansible®. You’ll get the key steps and considerations to succeed with an automation-first enterprise.
Marc Petrevilli, Consulting Managing Architect, Red Hat
Whether you're an Ansible® user or not, it’s important to consider how to bring on new organizations and teams to your current environment. This involves more than just adding accounts and granting RBAC roles. Often, you may find yourself teaching basics of source control and workflows. You might struggle to enforce best practices that help new users avoid common pitfalls. In this session, we’ll discuss strategies to automate onboarding tasks and provide new teams with a solid foundation for their Ansible journey.
Belkacem Moussouni, Automation Business Development Lead, Red Hat

In this session, learn how Ansible Automation Platform can help automate entire IT business processes across the IT stack and gain value for organizations. In this session, we’ll discuss strategies to automate onboarding tasks and provide new teams with a solid foundation for their Ansible journey.
Shamus McGillicuddy, Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA)
EMA Research Director Shamus McGillicuddy will present insights into how enterprise IT organizations execute network automation initiatives. Based on new qualitative and quantitative research, this presentation will reveal: Challenges encountered by your peers. Goals and business outcomes. Platform and feature requirements.
Damien Eversmann, Senior Solutions Architect, Red Hat
This session will take a humorous yet informative look at why automation isn't just a passing fad and is a necessity for enterprises. You’ll learn how automation, specifically Ansible®, can not only lead to job security, but also job satisfaction. This talk, which will cover the public and private sector, will include discussions of real use cases with measurable results and even a few fun examples.
Piyush Patel, Senior Architect, Network Automation Practice, Red Hat Consulting
Network admins are not the same as system admins. With tools like Ansible®, network admins can manage networking equipment in the same way system administrators manage servers--faster and more efficiently. In this session we’ll discuss a journey-based approach to implement network automation using Ansible. Topics include: How modeling can be used to maintain configuration. How auditing and remediation can help avoid configuration drift. Real-world scenarios of enabling network admins to manage and control your network infrastructure.
Bill Nottingham, Senior Principal Product Manager, Ansible Automation, Red Hat
When you move from automating in isolation to building automation across your enterprise, you need more from your automation platform. You need visibility into the health of your automation platform and pipelines. You need data about who is running what automation. You need to see who in your organization is leading your automation charge, and who might be lagging.
Join us as we walk through the newly created Automation Analytics capability of Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform, which brings knowledge and insights to automation operators to help answer these questions.
Damien Eversmann, Sr. Solutions Architect, Red Hat

RHEL 8 is the latest version of our flagship operating system and was designed to satisfy key customer demands and requirements. Image Builder makes building hybrid cloud architectures easier than ever. Application Streams and new container management tools improve the developer experience and a new Web Console and other features continue to help IT operations. Somewhat lost among the new features are some remarkable changes and improvements in security.
Get ready for discussion and demos of the coolest new security features in RHEL 8.
Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) refers to a collection of software solutions and tools that enable organizations to streamline security operations in typically three key areas: threat and vulnerability management, incident response, and security operations automation. Red Hat's Ansible Security Automation provides a supported set of Ansible modules, roles, and playbooks designed to unify security teams in a new way by orchestrating the activity of multiple classes of security solutions that wouldn't normally integrate with each other.
Learn how security teams are addressing multiple use cases within the SOAR space including detection and triage of suspicious activities, threat hunting, incident response using Red Hat's Ansible Automation Platform and how to extend Ansible automation to the orchestration of security information and events management, creating a closed-loop incident response and remediation, system of record.
Within US Public Sector, the need for tactical field kits is abundant. This applies to disaster response, cyber response, remote computing locations, etc. The field kits need to be rugged, portable, and fully capable to run all the applications and tools that run back in the central data center.
During this presentation, we will demonstrate a cloudlet that our team has been utilizing to solve the same problems as our customers. Repeatable and Automated infrastructure in a small form factor that can run the same workloads that will run in our customers data centers.
Join us for use cases and live demo of a fully automated stack of Red Hat Cloud Suite powered by Ansible.
Configuration Drift, Manual Validation, Human Error; these are all words we often associate with our system security posture. Utilizing today’s automation technologies, these can all be things of the past by taking proven CI/CD concepts and jumping into the world of SecOps.
