​Red Hat Announces 5th Annual Red Hat Forum

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the details for the company's annual Red Hat Forum in Asia Pacific. In its fifth year, the forum series kicks off in Jakarta, Indonesia, this September, with thousands of attendees anticipated across 11 cities in Asia Pacific.

This year, the program has been divided into two tracks, designed to better cater to the needs and interests of attendees – Building Transformative Cloud Infrastructure and Developing Next Generation Applications. Sessions are aimed at sparking discussions on a range of topics, including containers, cloud concepts (XaaS), the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as OpenStack. In addition, engineering and product experts will be on-hand throughout the sessions to address specific technological queries and give greater insight into the Red Hat ecosystem.

The OpenStack technology market is expected to hit $3.3 billion by 2018, and was a key topic of discussion during June's Red Hat Summit in Boston. Red Hat Forum’s theme this year, “Energize Your Enterprise,” continues this discussion, focusing on enterprises leveraging the latest IT solutions in order to innovate and transform the way business is done, highlighted by Red Hat executives sharing their views and insights on the benefits of open and hybrid cloud solutions. Additionally, key partners who have signed up for 4 and more cities like Intel (12 cities), Amazon Web Services (AWS – 11 cities), HP (9 cities), IBM (6-8 cities), and Dell (4 cities), will also share their experiences in using open source solutions to transform the IT environment while empowering enterprises for future challenges.
