Andrew Rubinger, an architect within Red Hat’s developer programs group, showed us how to revolutionize your deployments. Sounds like a long, complicated talk–surely something like this takes forever to set up. Actually, this was the shortest talk I’ve ever experienced at a Red Hat Summit.
That’s not a bad thing. It speaks volumes to the shift that we’re seeing in IT. The tools are there. They have the power and can do what we want and need. The change is in how people interact with those tools.
Good news: It’s finally getting easy.

DevNation is off to a great start and if you missed Cian Clarke’s overview of Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, I feel bad for you, son. And if you like live demos and real-world examples from your presenters, I feel extra bad. Cian broke his talk down to 3 slides and 40+ minutes of demos. We’ll get to that later, but let’s get some general info out of the way first.
What’s a mobile application platform?
For those that haven’t spent much time with mobile app platforms, Cian made it easy to see the power of being able to iterate fast, push updates, and track the progress of your mobile apps. Red Hat Mobile Application Platform gives you all of that and more.
Why a do I need a platform?
A mobile app platform is important if you’re dealing with multiple apps, multiple mobile form factors (tablets, phones, watches, etc), multiple back-end systems, developers, versions, etc. Basically, if you’re an enterprise working in mobile at all, a platform can help you manage everything–across multiple teams–from a central tool.

For large enterprises, adopting a new platform at scale presents many challenges—both technical and organizational. In this session, you’ll learn about the importance of strong partnerships in the context of the changing datacenter. Barclays representatives will discuss how they were able to:
- Deliver Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) as a core offering for Java/JEE workloads.
- Increase adoption of open source platforms.
- Influence product roadmaps.
- Provide support for large-scale infrastructure and application migration efforts.
- Lead initiatives that fostered adoption by Development and Operations teams across geographical and organizational boundaries.
Recently, Infor, EnterpriseDB, and Red Hat partnered to migrate the third largest ERP application in the market to an open source-based solution. In this session, we’ll walk you through the key technical challenges they ran into during porting, performance testing, and certification before achieving successful performance benchmark results. We’ll also share the resulting TCO study that illustrates the significant benefits these customers realized after their migrations.
You’ll leave this session understanding the key technical issues to pay attention to when eliminating your dependencies on proprietary software infrastructure, and the business benefits that result.
Many organizations are implementing Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) side by side. But can these hybrid IT environments be managed as one? Accenture will show that they can with the Accenture Cloud Platform, a cloud management platform for orchestration, development, and deployment of cloud services.
In this session, Accenture cloud executives representing PaaS and Accenture Cloud Platform groups will demonstrate how OpenShift Enterprise can be provisioned on a choice of IaaS providers in pre-established blueprints. They’ll also talk about building the tool and the value generated through managing automated, self-service, standardized cloud capabilities, with myriad services and providers, on a central platform.
Red Hat has mature middleware stacks in the enterprise engineering, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM), and data spaces. Some of these are standards related, while some standards don’t yet exist.
What does the future hold for these stacks as mobile, cloud, and the Internet of things continue to gather momentum? What will happen as new languages are added to the JVM (almost) daily, and the lines between technologies continue to blur?
In this interactive session, our panel of experts will discuss their personal visions for the future of Red Hat JBoss Middleware. We would also like to hear from you, so come prepared to talk about your concerns, requirements, and interests for the future.
The software collections utility provides a flexible framework for installing, configuring, and administering multiple versions of a software package on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux server. Users of the system then have the option to invoke these alternative software packages to run workloads on the server.
Solution architects at Red Hat see many use cases for software collections, including:
- Running applications with newer versions of the python or perl interpreter.
- Compiling code with a newer version of the C complier.
- Running a more recent version of a MySQL database.
This session will provide an overview of how software collections are invoked by users, how they are installed and maintained, and how an RPM can be developed for use within software collections.
You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of when to use the software collections utility, how software collections operate, and how they are developed.
More than 5 billion people spend an average of 2 hours a day using their mobile phones to bank, shop, reserve hotel rooms, socialize, and more. This challenges companies to migrate their traditional Java EE applications in order to address the demands of mobile and tablet users.
In this session, you’ll learn about some of the approaches to migrate a traditional Java EE application to mobile using specifications like RESTful, Context and Dependency Injection (CDI), Enterprise Java Beans (EJB3), and messaging from the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 6 for server-side services. You’ll also hear about various choices of client-side technologies, which depend on key differentiators between mobile native, mobile web, and mobile hybrid applications.
