A lot of partners requested a workshop to answer questions about designing Red Hat's Micro-Service Solution OpenShift and integrate them existing a real-world IT environments and connect it to an existing development Infrastructure. Another request was that partners need more arguments to sell Red Hat OpenShift solution into the large and complex environment. The idea behind this 3-day workshop is that – based on the presentation of Red Hat products – the attendees develop a complete technical sales speech, install a POC environment on their own Notebooks and are able to estimate the effort to do a POC to set up a POC in a customer environment. This should give our partners a excellent technical foundation to sell Red Hat OpenShift and Middleware solutions.
