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

Advanced Integrations for Ansible - ServiceNow

While incident management systems of record are a part of ITIL and Help Desk life, it's not a particularly enjoyable part. The ticket creation and follow-up for a system reboot or routine configuration change often takes up more time than physically logging into the device and performing the actions let alone running a script where it's fully automated. When routine actions turn into complex ones requiring change requests and approvals, the time spent waiting for the process to complete can add risk that automation was meant to solve.

In this first part of a series on Advanced Integrations for Ansible you will learn how to integrate the components of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform with ServiceNow to:
Generate a routine incident record
Integrate into approval process flows for non-routine change requests
Create a closed-loop System of Record for self-healing applications
Integrate and extend into ChatOps for self-service IT
Provide multiple pathways to consume IT services utilizing the same automation scripts
And hopefully make process enjoyable again, if it ever was.

  • Integration in the Hybrid Cloud Aug 27 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dan Domkowski, Software Delivery Specialist, Red Hat
    As technology platforms and cloud providers have simplified the availability of tooling for the study and analysis of data, the delivery of intelligent applications has gone from experimental to the mainstream. The rapid emergence of data science and intelligent application delivery can be attributed to both an increase in integration of data and data types across environments, and the availability of platforms and cloud solutions for building applications around the study of their data.

    Platforms capable of delivering services around application and data integration, intelligent application development, and process automation across the Open Hybrid Cloud allow organizations to turn meaningful analysis into meaningful action.
  • Next-Gen Mission Apps Built on Kubernetes w/Event-Driven & Serverless Approaches Aug 18 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ken Johnson, Vice President, Application Services Business Unit, Red Hat
    Whether you’re trying to better manage fraudulent claims, citizen interaction, respond to weather events or health crises, mitigate cyber attacks or route fleets of equipment and vehicles, a comprehensive, real-time event processing portfolio gives you the flexibility to produce sophisticated solutions with assurance of stability, simplicity, and proven enterprise patterns. Developing a solution that reacts and produces insights to real-time events requires an event driven architecture built to run across agency and infrastructure boundaries. The speed and volume of streaming data requires a high performance and scalable data event processing architecture and adds a layer of complexity regarding fault tolerance, data durability, and scalability. If properly analyzed, these real-time data streams can identify pain points, successes, behavioral habits, and provide real-time situational awareness. Critical to the adoption of these solutions are their innate portability. They must be able to run anywhere (on-premise, cloud, or hybrid cloud) and must be designed as decoupled, microservices, deployed within a robust container orchestration platform.

    Want to continue the conversation? Have more questions about mission applications? Join us again on Thursday, August 20 for Public Sector Social Hours, where we will demonstrate a complete fraud detection application, running on OpenShift and leveraging Kafka, KNative-based Serverless, Istio and other modern techs and architectures. The panel of experts will discuss key points of the demo and ask architectural questions. Attendees are also encouraged to ask questions.

  • How to scale our most constrained resources: The Brent problem Aug 11 2020 5:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    Kevin Behr & Yasir Syeed
    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.
