CED today announced that three senior leaders from Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, will discuss how the company drives innovation through partnerships at the CED Tech Forum on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, at the A.J. Fletcher Opera Theater at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh, N.C.
The program, Red Hat, Raleigh, and Open Source: Accessing a Global Community, will include a demonstration of Red Hat’s latest cloud and mobile technologies, covering resources for local software developers; as well as an overview of Red Hat’s corporate strategy for entrepreneurs and companies interested in adopting open source to expand to new markets.
The Red Hat panelists, DeLisa Alexander, executive vice president and chief people officer, Michael Ferris, director of business architecture, and Burr Sutter, senior project manager for Red Hat’s Middleware business, will discuss how the company collaborates with its global network of customers, partners, and contributors and how Triangle businesses can tap Red Hat’s resources for growth. The program coincides with Red Hat’s recent relocation of its headquarters to downtown Raleigh.
“Our commitment to downtown Raleigh reflects our desire to engage with the business and technical community in the Triangle,” said Alexander. “We are very interested in building long-term relationships with local developers, and look forward to the CED Tech Forum as a way to support innovation.”
