All companies who feel the weight of their customers' increasing demands for speed know that they should be IT companies, but many companies don't know how to get there. Hear from Josh Smith and Laine Vyvyan about how to navigate the high seas of business to deliberately find the treasure. The treasure  is the ability to embrace and empower existing IT resources, allowing you to keep up with the pace of business today.


Josh Smith, Cloud Platforms Solutions Architect, Red Hat

Josh Smith is a Cloud Platforms Solutions Architect at Red Hat and works extensively with OpenShift® and all that runs on it. He has had a 15-year career as a developer, lead developer, tech lead, architect, and enterprise architect. He's worked on big teams and small teams, and he’s been on a team of 1. In the process of all of this, he not only has learned a tremendous amount, but also loves to mentor and share all that he has learned. As a strategist, he lays out plans and dependencies, which results in a deep love of the complicated combination of business, people, culture, and tech that makes people's lives easier.

Laine Vyvyan, Channel Solutions Architect, Red Hat

Laine Vyvyan is a Channel Solutions Architect at Red Hat and specializes in OpenShift, build, and deployment automation. She has been a developer, a technical lead, and a stay-at-home mom. She has a flair for both technical and cultural things and realizes that her favorite place to be is that in-between place of technology and culture. She has also learned that enabling people and organizations is hard work and that explaining that in-between place can help.
