Driving Mobile Adoption for a Multichannel Healthcare and Insurance World

As the consumerization of IT accelerates, healthcare and insurance organizations are being challenged to adopt hybrid mobile solutions that let users, patients, providers and partners access – and enter – business critical information from an ever-increasing range of mobile devices. Who is driving mobile adoption, and how can your organization ensure it will be competitive?

This TechBytes series, presented by Slashdot Media and sponsored by IBM will look at three industries that are leading the mobility parade: Finance and banking, retail and hospitality, and healthcare and insurance. Each TechBytes segment will focus on one of these key industries, and industry experts will address key questions including:

  • What market trends are shaping how mobility is being employed?
  • Are new user interface models required for an increasingly millennial user base?
  • Can BYOD work in highly regulated industries like healthcare?
  • How can organizations accelerate their mobile adoption?
  • What are the most important considerations for embracing mobility
  • Can mobile solutions truly be secure?

Modernizing and migrating applications for government agencies

Government agencies want to migrate and modernize their applications. This might be as straight forward as migrating from a proprietary application server to an open source Java™ application server, or the modernization of a monolith application into a more modular microservice-driven application. Choosing the right infrastructure to host these migrated or modernized applications is a looming question for clients.

Join this webinar as Red Hat discusses pathways to:

  • Reduce Oracle and IBM maintenance bills by migrating application servers and messaging technology to Red Hat® JBoss® Middleware.
  • Migrate applications to cloud providers like Amazon and Microsoft using the same secure platforms already in your datacenter.
  • Understand the correct migration path for your Linux® containers and microservices.
  • Containerizing applications.

Speakers:
Zohaib Khan, app migration practice lead and PaaS Community of Practice manager, Red Hat
Jason Corey, middleware sales manager, Public Sector, Red Hat
