Implementing digital transformation and embracing enterprise IT are often easier said than done. Technology is constantly evolving, making it difficult to keep up. Not all organisations have the means to embrace the most recent advancements. or to scale their infrastructure to accommodate them.

However, the current landscape offers many opportunities, too. As more enterprises embrace digital transformation and invest in technologies, they unlock potential value, whether that’s through offering new products and services, reaching new markets, or finding ways to operate more efficiently. This includes the likes of cloud computing, with “hyperscalers” continuing to invest in local infrastructure and zones, automation, containerisation, and data analytics.

Open source, with its potential for innovation, collaboration and partnership, can help enterprises solve challenges and make the most of opportunities. In the face of tightened IT budgets, migrating to the cloud and upgrading IT operations to optimise development capacity, enterprises need solutions that can take them into the future and pave the way for real, effective transformation.

As Johannesburg gets ready to host the local edition of Red Hat Summit 2023, all eyes are on what enterprises can expect from Connect: Johannesburg and how Red Hat can help empower businesses with the next generation of technologies.
