Ingredients for Digital Transformation

June 22, 20215:30 PM - 7:00 PM(GMT-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Featuring Andrew Clay Shafer from Red Hat and Jack Harper from Couchbase

Presented by Red Hat and Couchbase

Business and IT leaders are increasingly called upon to deliver organizational transformation to quickly capture opportunities, defend against innovative competitors and deliver more value to all stakeholders, including customers, employees and shareholders. However, these digital transformation projects often go unfulfilled, over budget, and lack the vision and flexibility to satisfy requirements across your organization and truly win the hearts and minds of both developers and IT operations to propel your business forward.

In this invitation-only event, you’ll hear from industry thought leaders from Red Hat® and Couchbase describe how to overcome some of the cultural and technical obstacles standing in the way of digital transformation. Learn how to unlock the potential of your data trapped in legacy siloed applications and redirect budgets from costly platforms that are holding you back from delivering on your goals.   

The first 100 people who register will receive a Red Hat/Couchbase mixology kit* with everything you need to make your cocktail/mocktail. Register before June 14th to receive your kit in time for the event.


  • Jason Suss will break the ice with a mixology lesson and introductions
  • Andrew Clay Shafer provides perspective on successful digital transformations
  • Jason will walk you through mixing our second beverage
  • Jack Harper will discuss how to remove roadblocks when using data in a cloud environment
  • Q&A/beverage discussion/networking
