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

Improve continuously or lose to shadow IT

In many IT organizations the notion of improvement is often tied to a capital project. High- performing organizations create consistent learning and challenge at the edge, with no additional budget or staff. The secret? The power of the improvement kata pioneered at Toyota, which is a proven methodology for continuous improvement that can be used by organizations.

Learn how it is possible to improve nearly every process and outcome everyday. We will discuss a very simple set of tools designed to increase our decision-making capabilities, navigate uncertainty with a scientific approach, and reignite purpose and passion in idle management with a new focus on developing thinking and judgment versus telling people what to do.

This session will be presented by Yasir Syeed North American Public Sector Transformation Office, Red Hat and Kevin Behr Global Senior Director, Global Transformation Office, Red Hat; co-author, The Phoenix Project

  • Optimizing Serverless and OpenShift with Knative Oct 7 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jason Dudash, Chris Kang and Jon Keam | Red Hat
    Serverless computing allows developers to optimize their application usage, by executing and billing on application resource consumption. Traditionally this execution model was offered by cloud providers in a non-portable manner. Today - the serverless paradigm is offered in OpenShift via the Knative upstream project, adding a key toolkit for developers to build portable, cloud native applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

    Join us for a fireside chat with seasoned Red Hat architects to learn about this new development paradigm and how it can be effectively leveraged in your organization or government agency.

  • Cybersecurity Workshop Recorded: Sep 16 2020 25 mins
    Michael Epley, Red Hat
    Fending off cyber threats and preserving cybersecurity has never been more challenging. Among federal, state and local executives, cybersecurity consistently tops the list of concerns that keep them up at night. Attack surfaces are larger; the universe of bad actors seeking to breach security is expanding; techniques for exploiting vulnerabilities are more sophisticated; and in a digitally transformed environment, the stakes are higher, as well. Having a strong perimeter defense is no longer sufficient. In the era of cloud computing and massive mobility, the perimeter is pixilated. Everyone with a smart phone who seeks access to your network is a potential threat.

  • When change management stops change: How to increase velocity and reduce risk Recorded: Sep 3 2020 60 mins
    Kevin Behr and Yasir Syeed
    We did not invent brakes merely to stop cars. Change management is a process that is designed to increase change velocity and reduce risk. In this session, Kevin Behr, co-author of the best selling book, The Phoenix Project, will show that this key process area and associated rationale are a major determinant of organizational throughput and operational excellence. More people are frustrated with managing changes to their infrastructure and applications and often see the activity as annoying, or even worse, impeding progress.

    All of our collective work results in change, so let’s get the most out of it by understanding that we designed brakes to allow us to go faster. Stop driving with your foot on the brake, and rather use those brakes to achieve a higher velocity of successful changes. You’ll walk away with key metrics that will illuminate the process, and the opportunity to self-reflect on how you are measuring change and progress.

    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 Recorded: Aug 18 2020 59 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 V2 Recorded: Aug 11 2020 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.

  • End-to-End Visibility and Control for your Kubernetes Clusters Recorded: Aug 6 2020 49 mins
    Rod Moore, Cloud Domain Architect, Red Hat
    In today's open hybrid datacenter, Applications are moving from a monolithic to a cloud-native approach that leverages Kubernetes. These modern applications may have components that span multiple clusters and multiple cloud providers. In addition, new clusters are being added for specific purposes like edge deployments and reduced latency. This "Cluster Sprawl" introduces several new management issues. For example;

    How can I manage the lifecycle of multiple clusters regardless of where they reside (on-premise or across public clouds) using a single control plane?

    How do I get a simplified understanding of my cluster health and the impact it may have on my application availability?

    In this webinar, you'll learn to address these management concerns and numerous others with Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes. It offers end-to-end management visibility and control to manage your cluster and application life cycle, along with security and compliance of your entire Kubernetes domain across multiple datacenters and public clouds.
