2015 Red Hat Government Symposium

In government technology, structural and cultural change in people, process, and technology must occur to make IT more productive and efficient. At Red Hat’s Government Symposium, the Red Hat team took these core tenents to heart, exploring the journey from dev to ops with a strong focus on the cultural factors of institutional change as it relates to growing open source adoption in the public sector. ­

The day opened with Gunnar Hellekson, Product Management and Strategy for Linux at Red Hat, exploring what he termed the “government IT renaissance” and continued with federal and industry leaders discussing and collaborating on the most pressing issues in today’s government technology landscape, including:

  • Cloud Adoption
  • Mobile Application Development
  • Embracing Containers
  • IT Sustainability
