Enterprise-wide approach to open transformation, at Red Hat Summit

Our new era is one of unprecedented change—and possibility. The rapid pace of disruption and innovation that we call digital transformation is fueled by the combination of people, process and technology; forcing interactions at levels we have never before seen, to fundamentally remake the enterprise. While many organizations are relying on cutting edge technology to fuel transformation, experts, and our own experience, tell us that just adding new technologies to the portfolio is not enough to win at transformation.

Deliver value with distributed teams through the power of open

It’s uncontested that open source communities have been at the center of innovation for decades, enabling and accelerating innovation through distributed developers’ contributions. What’s also become clear over time is that the outcomes of the open-source development model are anchored in ways of working and unsaid cultural principles and practices that enable these communities to thrive. 

Red Hat, the leader in open-source, has boiled down the underpinnings of open source innovation in five principles that make up what we call open culture: transparency, collaboration, adaptability, community, and inclusivity. These principles — a bedrock to Red Hat’s innovative model for decades — have never been put to the test more than in the current climate when remote work has become the norm, and leaders rely on high-performing remote teams to continue to deliver tangible business outcomes and innovation. Business goals may need to be adapted in the current climate, but initiatives, milestones, and initiatives don’t disappear. Working in an agile manner is critical.

Metrics Based Process Mapping (mbpm)

How to Visualize, Measure and Optimize Your Processes

If you are familiar with Value Stream Mapping (vsm) then you know its a macro-level map of the end to end delivery flow of a particular service or product from the beginning until it reaches a customer.  Metric Based Process Mapping (mbpm) on the other hand is a more detailed or micro-level view of how some of the stages or single processes of a vsm deliver value.

You’ve got Virtual Machines in my Container Platform!: An argument for running VM’s in Kubernetes

This post was originally published on https://dev.to/tylerauerbeck.

Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?

This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.
