A fear of failure can stymie an organization's transformation efforts. Transformation isn't just about technology. Culture and process are integral components, and change to one or both can create fear in an organization
"Julio Villarreal Pelegrino, distinguished architect, hybrid cloud, at Red Hat advises, "Don't be afraid to fail. Fail fast and fail often, but learn from failure, incorporate the lessons learned, and share the feedback."
Pelegrino is a part of the first batch of Distinguished Architects at Red Hat: Senior-level technical contributors who've continued to advance in their careers working directly with customers and applying experience and knowledge of Red Hat technologies..."
Davie Street Enterprises (DSE), our fictional case study company with real-world problems, has made significant progress in its modernization efforts in this past year.
"The company has automated a large part of its IT infrastructure and has completely revamped its development processes using DevSecOps.
It has also rebuilt the Parts and Supply (PAS) system to allow for more efficient supply chain management. With these successes behind it, DSE is feeling a little more confident in its plans to transform the company.
However, it looks ahead soberly and sees some very big challenges in modernizing its warehouse operations and is not sure how to address them. In this post, we'll share how DSE plans to add predictive maintenance capabilities with Red Hat and an ecosystem of vendors, and begin its path toward Industry 4.0..."

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.5 Beta is full of improvements, new features and is easier for RHEL users to access and test out.
"This release brings live kernel patching to the web console, a number of system roles and management enhancements, and removes the requirement to explicitly ask for beta access.
A number of the new features and enhancements in this release are a direct response to customer requests. This release continues the 6-month release cadence Red Hat announced at the beginning of the RHEL 8 cycle, providing users with a predictable and reliable release schedule..."
The pandemic has shown us how fragile our infrastructure services and resilience can be, when faced with a loss of access to datacenter resources, either by way of physical or remote access through reliance on outsourced providers
"That's why at the height of the pandemic last year, we witnessed a significant rethink about the pace at which we move applications and data to the cloud. A major health insurer in Australia whom I spoke to recently said they have moved more data to the cloud than ever before in order to have the capabilities for a remote and diverse team to be able to work on solving digital business use cases.
We've also arrived at a juncture where cloud-centric technologies are the foundation for all infrastructure, be it from a cloud provider, or in an in-house infrastructure refresh or modernization program. Thanks to open source technologies, there is much more confidence in the ability to design portable and deployable workloads into modern infrastructure at higher densities, configurations and at the speed of software code...."
