The world’s largest innovation engine works distributed and remotely!

“ When choosing a technology stack, organisations are focused first on maintaining business continuity, efficiency and, now more than ever, the adaptability and flexibility to respond to the unexpected. “

 

It’s not uncommon to see statements like this from technology companies. I couldn’t disagree more.  

 

I think all of the above is what the C-levels of any corporation already take for granted – like switching on the lights.

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.

What factors make companies fail to adopt emerging technologies?

Innovating and adopting emerging technology is practically mandatory for any company, regardless of its segment of activity, due to systems and technology now supporting the business, and the way companies sell their products or provide services to their customers.

Everybody talks about emerging technologies and the importance of companies adopting such technologies that are super innovative and have great potential to transform the way we work. However, because they are still recent and have not been widely explored or tested, they generate insecurity and challenges at the time of adoption.

To adopt innovative technologies, it is necessary to understand the challenges brought with it and look for ways to facilitate massive adoption. After all, there is no point in just having one silo or department interested in adopting emerging technologies, if the rest of the organization does not understand the benefits of this change.

But what are the real factors that blocker emerging tech adoption within companies?

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.

4 ways to jump start an Open Source & Agile Automation Culture

Automation within enterprise IT is not a new topic. Whether it’s automating the creation of a user desktop or a server, the drive has always been to automate as much as possible to achieve faster time to market and efficiency. What has changed, though, is the number of infrastructure elements one can automate within an IT org. I still remember my first job in college 15 years ago where I used a variety of tools to automatically deploy and configure Windows XP simultaneously across 50 desktop machines for a classroom lab environment. Today not only can we automate desktop computer deployments but also servers, applications, and even networking.
