Dealing with a MultiCloud World
Most companies today, have accepted that they will either move some workloads to the cloud, and/or they will adopt new applications delivered through the cloud. This means that companies everywhere need to examine how the network will change when the cloud is involved.
 If the move to multicloud means that enterprises have to adopt a new set of tools and operating procedures for each cloud, then cost and effort will skyrocket, both of which impact overall IT performance and budget. To fully reap the advantages of multicloud, you need the agility to run any workload on any cloud and manage your multivendor resources as a single, cohesive infrastructure
This presentation will show how Juniper’s Contrail Enterprise Multicloud (CEM) can take advantage of Multi-Cloud’s benefits whilst simplifying its management and security.

Running Ansible at Scale
Ansible is a radically simple automation tool that tends to grow in organizations from the bottom up. As more and more critical tasks are automated with Ansible, and more team members are writing and running playbooks, a clear path to scaling from a handful of admins running Ansible from their workstations to a powerful and robust automation solution the company can depend on is required.

In this session, you will learn:
- Challenges teams face with scaling Ansible
- How Ansible Tower is the key to automation at scale
- Ways to improve performance and understand job concurrency in Ansible Tower
- Recommended ways of organizing and developing Ansible Playbooks and roles

How to Fund Your IT Innovation
Red Hat’s Infrastructure Migration Solution can help organizations accelerate their digital transformation journey without increasing their costs, allowing them to invest in transformative technologies such as containers, automation, and multi-cloud management by lowering the cost of their existing infrastructure investments. 

The solution achieves this by analyzing the cost of the existing infrastructure and providing an alternative virtualization platform for both new growth and existing workloads. New workloads can be delivered on the alternative platform in an automated fashion with self-service ensuring IT can quickly recreate the workloads on future platforms, such as public clouds without a heavy burden. Existing workloads are then analyzed and migrated using a proven methodology to ensure all business requirements are satisfied for the workload, such as migrating within proper change control windows and having approvals from needed stakeholders. 

Finally, the savings realized from the infrastructure migration, often 40-50% over the existing long-term commitment are used to accelerate adoption of technologies around multi-cloud management, automation, and containers.
