Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that industry experts and key business decision-makers will soon be gathering at Red Hat Forum APAC 2019, one of the premier open source technology event series in Asia Pacific.

Red Hat has been helping enterprises from across all industries — including the government, financial services and telecommunications — gain greater flexibility and agility by using open source to help transform and innovate. With the theme “Expanding Your Possibilities,” that continues the discussion that started at Red Hat Summit in May in Boston, Red Hat Forum APAC 2019 aims to inspire businesses to address the challenges they face and expand their possibilities with open source. The series will do so by showcasing how customers are using open source innovations to modernize their infrastructure and applications, and deliver exciting innovations.

The forum will kick-off with a keynote on ‘Changing The Way We Work,’ which will talk about how Red Hat has developed world-changing software and practices through open source. It will also offer advice on ways organizations can use open source to advance more rapidly through collaboration, and operate with transparency and trust.

Along with regional Red Hat leaders, several global executives will be attending and delivering keynotes in various APAC cities, including: Tim Yeaton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer; Chris Wright, chief technology officer; John Allessio, senior vice president and general manager, Global Services; Ashesh Badani, senior vice president, Cloud Platforms; and Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president, Global Channel and Alliances.

The Red Hat Forum APAC is a platform for customers and partners to learn about trends and developments in open source, exchange ideas on ways to address critical pain points with open source, share success stories, and network directly with Red Hat and its ecosystem of technology partners.

To further exemplify the event theme, the Red Hat APAC Innovation Awards 2019 will recognize customers who have accelerated innovation and agility by utilizing open source to transform and modernize their organizations’ information technology. Last year, Cathay United Bank (CUB), Energy Market Company and Doosan Information & Communications were among the organizations that snagged the top spots for their outstanding and creative use of Red Hat open source solutions.
