Red Hat, headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, is a provider of open source technologies and Linux. The company recently acquired FuseSource, an open source integration and messaging service, and Polymita, a provider of business productivity technologies. Vance McCarthy discusses an upcoming Red Hat event that aims to share plans for the acquisition in the article, “Red Hat Execs Share Roadmaps for Open Source SOA, BPM, Integration at 4-Day Online Event; Oct 15-18.” The general event structure is explained:
The event will feature speakers from both the business side and the technical side, so it will be a comprehensive view of the company’s plans for both IT and line-of-business decision makers. Each of the four days will focus on specific technology initiatives for integration, messaging, BRMS/BPM, and data integration. ‘We’ll have both high-level business vision discussions and some real engineering stars in all these technologies so we can give enterprise architects, lead devs and IT operations people all the detail they want,’ Fricke said.
Piere Fricke is the Director of Integration and BPM Product Marketing at Red Hat. Incorporating open source technologies is a strategic way to employ integration and add to infrastructure. Another example of a leader in open source integration is LucidWorks. They have developed key strategic alliances and implementation partnerships with companies well known in big data spaces to develop their flagship products, LucidWorks Search and LucidWorks Big Data.
