The Red Hat Forum will feature Red Hat use cases and scenarios addressing critical pain points, real-world strategies and solutions, technology and business sessions. The event will provide an ideal opportunity for direct networking with Red Hat and its partners, including platinum sponsor HP. Attendees will learn how to advance their IT business by staying on top of new trends and being aware of issues that can impact revenue and productivity.
To better suit the needs and interests of attendees, the Red Hat Forum will run two parallel streams; business and technical. Business-focused sessions will expand on competitive advantages gained through proven IT innovation, the benefits of community-powered innovation, and the efficiencies that can be realized by moving into the cloud. The technical stream will offer a comprehensive technical overview, including an update on the much-anticipated Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
In addition, attendees will be able to engage with Red Hat’s EMEA team and top executives to discuss Red Hat’s vision of the future. Engineering and product experts will be on-hand to address specific technological queries that will give a greater insight into the Red Hat ecosystem.
