Peter Färbinger, Editor-in-Chief, will be the moderator. Participants from Red Hat are Peter Körner, Business Development Manager Open Hybrid Cloud SAP Solutions, Jochen Glaser, Global Head of SAP Business, and Jürgen Sommer, Global Head of SAP Alliance.

The Round Table will not only address pure SAP topics, it will also focus on linking the SAP and non-SAP worlds - the famous thinking outside the box! After all, end-to-end automation of the entire process landscape is at the forefront of the IT agenda in many companies.

One focus of the discussion is therefore Red Hat Ansible Automation. Ansible supports the automation of processes across servers, storage devices, network devices, services, containers and clouds. Ansible is currently being increasingly used in the SAP area, especially in the context of Rise with SAP. Hundreds of Ansible playbooks are currently being created and use cases mapped.

Rise with SAP, the SAP solution model for the transformation to the intelligent enterprise, opens up many opportunities, but on the other hand often still leads to a certain amount of uncertainty on the part of companies. The Round Table actively addresses such concerns. Specifically, it will be shown what a supportive role Red Hat can play for all partners and companies in Rise projects.

The round table will be rounded off by innovative topics such as Factory Edge or Red Hat's offerings in the areas of training and certification.

The round table discussion follows a top-down approach. That means: First, strategies, trends, an outlook on upcoming developments, and visions will be discussed. Then the focus is on operational aspects, practical tips for users, companies, and partners, and concrete use cases such as the use of Ansible automation at the Schwarz Group. This methodical approach is intended to ensure a 360-degree all-round view for all target groups.
