100 % agree of what Lisa Davis, CIO of Georgetown University, explains in the following video about how the role of the CIO is changing.
I take this opportunity to propose you the following thing :
If you are a CIO/CEO of a small/medium/large company based in Belgium or in Luxembourg and are interested to better understand Open source and why it is going to change the business, “YOUR BUSINESS” then feel from to contact me via my LinkedIn Profile
On my side, I would be really interested to better understand your needs, constraints and challenges.
OK, this true that I work for Red Hat but I can guaranty you we will have an objective and neutral conversation.
We will only talk about technology, Open Source and what you bring to drive your business forward
In today‘s fast-moving, demanding economy, organizations are using DevOps and bi-modal IT initiatives to compete and achieve the next level of developer productivity. They also seek complementary, flexible technologies that enable them to experiment, fail fast, and still deliver innovations on time.
With new support for deploying a JBoss EAP subscription across multiple environments, customers can now better tailor their applications based on their individual business requirements. For example, JBoss EAP in traditional on-premise or virtualized environments and/or newly-renamed Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for xPaaS* in OpenShift Enterprise.
JBoss EAP 6.4 also includes support :
- Support on Java 8 applications
- Support on the Java API WebSockets implementation protocol,
- Support on JSR 356,
- Enable developers to build real-time, rich client and mobile applications with reduced overhead and complexity.
Red Hat cited as a “Visionary” in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform-as-a-Service, Worldwide for OpenShift Online Offering
Red Hat has been positioned in the Visionary quadrant of the Gartner, Inc., “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform-as-a-Service, Worldwide” for our OpenShift Online public Platform-as-a-Service offering… Red Hat was evaluated against 16 other public PaaS vendors. OpenShift allows transferable code base between on-premise and public offerings allowing better flexibility of choice for developers. “Its robust platform and interoperability with popular middleware development frameworks has enabled more than 2.25 million applications to be created for a variety of business and developer needs.”

Red Hat Expands JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Subscription with Greater Flexibility to Move into the Cloud
May 6, 2015
Enterprises are under pressure to deliver new applications fast; however, many factors, including rigid proprietary stacks, inflexible licensing agreements, and cultural silos in IT can prevent enterprises from achieving the agility they need to stay competitive. Enterprises are increasingly implementing DevOps methodologies, and technologies that complement them, to break down siloed communications between development and operations teams and accelerate application development and delivery. As DevOps adoption increases, so does the demand for technologies that complement DevOps methodologies and enable high productivity of developers and operations teams working closely together.
“Although DevOps emphasizes people (and culture) over tools and processes, implementation utilizes technology. As a result, Gartner, Inc. expects strong growth opportunities for DevOps toolsets, with the total for DevOps tools reaching $2.3 billion in 2015, up 21.1 percent from $1.9 billion in 2014. By 2016, DevOps will evolve from a niche strategy employed by large cloud providers to a mainstream strategy employed by 25 percent of Global 2000 organizations.”1
Red Hat is committed to helping enterprises get more out of their technology by allowing for greater freedom of choice. JBoss EAP supports a broad range of third-party frameworks, operating systems, databases, security, and identity systems to make integration into existing infrastructure easier. In addition, new subscription flexibility expands support for customers deploying JBoss EAP across multiple environments based on their individual needs and business requirements, including on-premise, in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, or in hybrid cloud scenarios.
Additional enhancements introduced in JBoss EAP 6.4 include:
- Support for Java 8 applications, as well as for the Java API WebSockets implementation protocol, JSR 356, enabling developers to build real-time, rich client and mobile applications with reduced overhead and complexity.
- Expanded JBoss EAP console and Red Hat Customer Portal integration, giving users direct access to the Red Hat Customer Portal, including the ability to receive support, open and manage tickets, and access the knowledge base.
- New console functionality with an updated user interface enabling users to view log files more easily and manage security configuration for applications.
- Kerberos authorization for greater application security.
As one of the only open source application platforms that commercially supports Java EE applications deployed in PaaS environments, JBoss EAP deployed on OpenShift provides developers with a fully certified Java EE 6 container and all the tools needed to build, run, and manage a wide range of Java applications. The combination of JBoss EAP and OpenShift Enterprise helps enterprises to optimize both development and operations by offering the ability to build enterprise-grade Java applications in a streamlined PaaS environment more quickly.
