Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst to Deliver Keynote Address at Open Source Business Conference
RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced that president and CEO, Jim Whitehurst, will
deliver the keynote address at Computerworld's Open Source
Business Conference (OSBC) on May 21, 2012. OSBC 2012 features
content-rich sessions from visionary thought leaders and industry
executives on how open source technology is being used and what the
implications are from a business perspective, and the conference offers
the chance to connect with the developers, users and companies behind
some of the most significant open source, mobile and cloud technologies.
Traditional IT, long the object of ridicule, has finally reached its
"escape velocity" and is emerging from the data center to fundamentally
shape business and our lives in multiple ways. Today, growing computing
power, combined with falling costs, is driving technology's own
ubiquity. In his visionary keynote address, Whitehurst will describe the
profound mega-trends he believes have been unleashed as a result of the
prevalence of computing and communications, and explain how these
mega-trends help drive new dynamics that have contributed to an
explosion of innovation, radical new business models and fundamental
shifts in governance.
