The open hybrid cloud is Red Hat’s recommended strategy for architecting, developing, and operating a hybrid mix of applications, delivering a truly flexible cloud experience with the speed, stability and scale required for digital transformation. Red Hat customers can evolve from unmanageable application and infrastructure platforms to a cloud-native, on-demand environment that provides business agility and innovation. Learn how.

Emerging Technology Tech Talks

The Rise of the Citizen Developer

People, process, and technology are the three pillars of digital transformation.  Until now, digital transformation programs has largely failed owing to a lack of the right tools to empower people, distribute work, and break IT bottlenecks with new technology to deliver immersive, tailored, secure digital applications and experiences.  New low-code / no-code tools are a new disruptive force to power digital initiatives by helping each and every agency worker become a digital innovator and citizen developer.
