With AppDynamics AppSphere™ 2015 less than three weeks away, our lineup of awesome speakers, presenters, customers, and partners continues to grow stronger each day.  I’m thrilled to announce that Red Hat will serve as our lead sponsor for our second annual AppSphere in Las Vegas. As a Diamond Sponsor, Red Hat is coming to AppSphere in a big way!

“With Red Hat and AppDynamics, our customers at AppSphere will see the ADVANTAGE of our growing collaboration,” says Matthew Polly, Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Business Development for AppDynamics. “Application development solutions and AppDynamics Application Intelligence are complementary—offering customers and developers the ability to efficiently develop powerful applications.”

Red Hat provides customers with open source tools and platforms to develop Java- and cloud-based applications. And AppDynamics, helps to optimize these applications for performance. John Bleuer, Vice President, Global ISVs and Alliances at Red Hat agrees. “Enterprises want applications that deliver exceptional performance at every phase of the software development lifecycle. By integrating AppDynamics’ Application Intelligence with OpenShift and Red Hat JBoss Middleware, developers have access to the visibility to help them develop and release high-performance applications.”

Our growing relationship with Red Hat will be a centerpiece of AppDynamics AppSphere™ 2015 .  Highlights of Red Hat’s presence in Las Vegas include Red Hat Keynote at AppSphere Partner Summit, Breakout Sessions about Red Hat and Microservices, and panelists on our Internet of Things and Microservices Panel.

See you there!

Bob Callaway

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the transformation occurring across less connected intelligent devices towards software driven and attached devices. As IoT grows, new use cases and businesses will emerge, requiring an agile development and operations approach. Today Gartner estimates the IoT touches 5 billion devices, but is expected to grow to 25 billion devices by 20202. This results not only in scale issues, but also increased demands on infrastructure and applications. Join Dr. Bob Callaway, Director of Solutions Architecture, IoT at Red Hat, with others as we discuss general IoT market and adoption trends, business/technology challenges for IoT, and key management issues for IoT.

Red Hat will also participate on our Microservices panel and host an invite only happy hour for joint customers. Haven’t registered for AppSphere yet? Use code REDHATCUST50 to receive a discounted pass by clicking here.
