Top 3 Highlights From Red Hat Summit 2018

Astellent team was busy meeting with amazing customers and partners at Red Hat Summit 2018 in San Francisco from May 8 to May 10 2018. Here are the three higher order bits that we captured.

I. Red Hat as the simplifying force for the new chaotic world of IT

Customers in varying industries are facing fundamental questions to transition to the new digitized world. They have myriad options in front of them.

They need to handle different environments within their data centers and with the new public and private clouds including AWS, Google Cloud and Azure. They have their workflows running within different operating systems including Linux, Microsoft, Unix and others. There are new languages and platforms developers want to use for different faces of innovation - that includes Go, Python, Java, C++, Swift and many others.

Red Hat has emerged as the glue and the simplifying force within these software organizations now.

Red Hat OpenShift platform combined with Istio provide a complete package on top of Docker and Kubernetes to allows a hybrid cloud to flourish. Now, you can build applications that are agnostic of where you run them. With OpenShift you can allow developers with very different skills and preferences to keep doing what they do best while getting free from the infrastructure related blockers that used to slow them down.

Every industry needs to have an API strategy now as they configure themselves to fit in the new digitized ecosystems. 3Scale is one of the best platforms to manage your API infrastructure and make it scalable, flexible and future proof.

II. Solidifying major partnerships with Microsoft and IBM

Things have changed drastically since Microsoft and Linux were two words we could not include together. The new Microsoft and the new Red Hat have a very deep partnership now which grew deeper this year. Red Hat and Microsoft are now working together to build one of the best solutions for container management, bringing Kubernetes and Azure together with OpenShift.

The new OpenShift release offers software organizations the ability to manage applications across both public cloud and on-prem using a simple set of tools. Microsoft SQL Server is much more deeply integrated within OpenShift now.

IBM and Red Hat are closer now than ever before due to their work combining containers and hybrid cloud platforms. Now, IBM Cloud Private can deploy containers across Red Hat portfolio. The new combination is fueling cloud services for AI, blockchain and IoT.  IBM PowerAI, IBM's deep learning toolkit, will also be available on Red Hat's operating system.

III. Making things that matter with open source software

Change is easy. Progress is hard. Progress relies on those that see the world as it is, but dare to imagine something better.

Attending Red Hat Summit leaves us humbled by the stories of people pushing us forward and making a difference with open source software. Open source software is an amazing intersection of community and code. It is at the center of people who are building a better world. In particular, we loved the story about the School Mapping Project by Erica Kochi and the teams at UNICEF Innovation and Red Hat.

We are proud to be part of this community. Thank you for inspiring us and challenging us to do more and to make a difference.

Why Did We Start Astellent?

The world is going through an unprecedented level of change in many different dimensions right now. Having toiled hard for the last two decades as builders and implementers of software applications and tools, it is extremely gratifying to see what is possible to build today due to the advances in cloud services and machine intelligence. Software is eating the world and data along with cloud services are adding spices to that meal.

The traditional “non software” companies like the financial, transportation, retail and healthcare companies are compelled now to go make changes that were meant only for the “new software companies”. There are ambitious people within these organizations who don’t just want to embrace this change but want to lead it in a way that no-one has done before. Astellent was started to work with these ambitious people to make what matters.

Machine Learning/Deep Learning advances are forcing engineering organizations to unlearn procedural algorithmic instructions and learn how to develop software using models and data inferences. Cloud is fundamentally changing the speed, processes, and economics to deliver software. Microservices, containers, and DevOps technologies are making a huge difference in how software is designed and packaged.

There is a gap in the marketplace right now. No one company is holistically helping businesses fill white spaces and integrate different pieces of infrastructure, tools, processes and organizational change management. Astellent aims to fill that gap with our expertise in AI/ML/DL, Software Engineering and Cloud skills to fill white spaces and create an end-to-end integrated approach, with our skills in leading people behavior change management in technical organizations.

We have developed tools, templates and methodologies to bring the best out of your developers, ops teams, data scientists and security teams. We built these with our partners who we respect and follow with all our heart. We have partnership in our DNA to allow us to bring the best of breed solutions from our partners like Red Hat, AWS and NVIDIA. These companies aren’t trophies – they are our most trusted collaborators. The work we do wouldn't be possible without them.

There are three fundamental areas of this change we have identified to provide consulting and solutions: Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering and Cloud. Please contact us if you share this ambition and are looking to make the most of your code and data to make something what matters.
