Simplified IT & real-time business management with SAP

Today’s hyper-connected and digitized world creates unprecedented new opportunities as well as challenges. Across every industry, the winners are those that can truly harness the power of data to identify opportunities, make quick decisions, and execute efficient business operations. This demands a radically new approach to managing information.

In this session, we’ll share SAP’s data management strategy and describe the enabling technologies–SAP HANA, SAP ASE, SAP IQ, SAP SQL Anywhere–that let you transact, integrate, analyze, and deliver any data to any application, user, or machine, located anywhere in real-time. And you can do this with low TCO. We’ll also discuss how we’re working with Red Hat to deliver this vision to our customers.

Deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform on HP ConvergedSystem 700x

HP’s ConvergedSystem 700x provides an entire system infrastructure for fast and flexible deployments of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, which is designed to scale with your growing workload needs. It’s also designed to deliver performance and manageability with a highly engineered ecosystem of compute, storage, networking, and management.

In this session, we’ll discuss best practices for Red Hat EnterpriseLinux OpenStack Platform 4 and HP CS700x system deployments. We’ll also discuss how this high-performance, low-latency architecture is ideal for rapid deployment and non-disruptive scaling of capacity and performance.

Exploring big data & analytics for innovative business results

Data is emerging as the world’s newest resource for competitive advantage. As the value of insight from data continues to grow, companies are struggling with their current systems to keep pace as their present IT infrastructures and IT budgets can’t keep up with the increased demand for insights and the volume of data.

In this session, we’ll explore how top-performing organizations confront this reality by taking a different approach. You’ll learn how companies are gaining competitive advantage with new innovation and design that puts data to work faster with their Linux solutions. These systems are easy to consume and manage with open source technologies, simplified virtualization management, and flexible capabilities.

Got downtime? Building QoS into the cloud

By 2017, half of all companies will likely have hybrid cloud deployments. As companies move to deploy mission-critical applications to the cloud, ensuring 24×7 quality of service, security, and compliance are built into the cloud is mandatory.

In this session, IBM’s Kershaw Metha will join Steve Dickens to provide an overview and host a discussion about how new integrated IBM hardware and OpenStack software innovations are enabling differentiated capabilities for Red Hat Enterprise Linux-based hybrid cloud deployments.

Empowering enterprise IT

Datacenter operators face increasingly difficult challenges related to the massive growth in web-scale applications, Platform-as-a-Service, network traffic, storage, and the diversity of workloads. Enterprises need to deliver services across compute, network, and storage with greater agility and improved TCO.

Virtualization was the first phase for datacenter operators who are now asking, “What’s next? How do I deliver the next wave of datacenter efficiency? How do I offer the agility that public cloud providers like Amazon deliver?”

In this session, you’ll learn about Intel’s vision for the future of IT infrastructures and how Red Hat is uniquely positioned to help customers in the changing landscape of IT.

Cisco Prime Service Catalog & OpenShift

IT departments are under greater pressure than ever to reduce costs and increase access to larger amounts of information. In this session, we’ll cover the combination of Cisco Prime Service Catalog and Red Hat OpenShift. You’ll learn how to create domains and applications then automatically bind them to specific projects.

Eliminate dependencies on proprietary software: A proven approach

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.

Get going faster with on-demand private PaaS

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.
