Red Hat Mobile: A walkthrough of the platform

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.

Integration gets modernized at the Red Hat Summit

integration

Federal government spends roughly 80 percent of its $80 billion annual IT budget on maintaining legacy systems.  Well, it’s about time that these systems are modernized.  However, when migrating legacy environments to microservices and the cloud, it is not just the systems and applications that need to go through modernization.  Shake up your integration strategy to enable digital transformation, says VP & Gartner Fellow Massimo Pezzini.  This includes the approach and techniques used for enterprise integration.  What may have worked in the past will no longer be applicable going forward.  “Integration is dead. Long live integration!” screams the title of this session on the Integration track at the Red Hat Summit — hinting at the continuing need for enterprise integration with modernized approaches. This comes across loud and clear when I take a look at the sessions on this track.  Join me as I explain why Integration gets modernized at the Red Hat Summit.

Summit sneak peek: Open Source Stories

Open source hits the big screen

Open source was popularized long ago with Linux, but it’s everywhere now. And it’s doing more than helping companies innovate.

From cancer support groups and maker movements to food production and citizen-run government apps, open development has grown into the default innovation model for the 21st century, affecting every facet of life.

What are Open Source Stories?

With Open Source Stories, Red Hat documents and celebrates the impact of open source on everyday lives. It could be an open healthcare initiative that calls for a universal medical data hub.Or a high school program that empowers students to operate a laptop help desk. Or a foundation that turns open source 3D printing into prosthetic hands for children. From global movements to individual accomplishments, we shine a light on the people who are bringing open source thinking from tech and business out into the world.

Continuous IT optimization evolves purposeful business modernization at Red Hat Summit

Landscape highway

“Your company has to change and adapt or it will go out of business”. So reads the abstract for the session by Christian Posta on SOA to microservices—continuous modernization with microservices and containers .  Fact is there are many “good-old” logos that have been impacted by change.  Remember Blockbuster? Kodak? Borders? As Charlie Feld asserted during his keynote about the enterprises of today at the Evanta CIO Summit in Chicago last year, “If you don’t like change, you will hate extinction!”.  Posta’s session at the Red Hat summit is particularly interesting because it highlights the continuous evolution of legacy architectures while purposefully modernizing the business to leverage state-of-the-art technological and architectural paradigms. “Just uber-jar everything” is a gross misnomer when evolving from SOA to the reality of microservices.  No matter where you are on your enterprise transformation journey, please join me in this tour of the sessions on the Modernization and IT optimization track.

Summit sneak peek: Ansible, Atomic Host, and containers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAUsing Ansible to install containers on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host is a useful Linux distribution because its small footprint makes it ideal for hosting container deployments. Ansible is an automation tool with an elegant simplicity that allows you to orchestrate containers and everything around them.

In this Summit session, Greg and Matt will show you (in gory detail) how to use Ansible and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host together to build, manage, and scale your container infrastructure.

Greg DeKoenigsberg is the Ansible community guy who thinks about a lot of container stuff. He has more than a decade of open source project and community leadership experience, including time as the Fedora Project Leader and head of the Fedora Project Board during his first stint at Red Hat.

Matt Micene is a solutions architect for DLT who does a lot of container stuff, and sometimes writes about it.  He’s earned both his RHCE and RHCA accreditations and was a 2010 RHCE of the Year.
