The conference commenced with the keynote presentations by Red Hat executives - including Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen, senior vice president and general manager for Asia Pacific; Arun Oberoi, executive vice president for global sales and services; and Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president, partners and alliances. Other notable guest speakers include Sandra Ng, group vice president of IDC Asia Pacific practice group, who provided insights into the partner landscape and market opportunities in the region.
With the theme “Stronger Together,” the event featured several breakout sessions on key focus areas such as application modernization and integration, IT automation, containers, hybrid cloud and how open source can drive innovation across these areas. The conference also provided a platform for partners to exchange ideas, spark meaningful discussions, and network directly with Red Hat leaders and the partner ecosystem.
Combining this with the opportunity to hear from Red Hat executives and partners such as Deloitte, Intel, STT Connect and Microsoft on how to develop a winning business strategy with Red Hat solutions, the 2018 Red Hat Partner Conference Asia Pacific is the ideal one-stop forum for partners looking to take their business to the next level.
