Vice President & General Manager, Red Hat Public Sector
Clara Conti and her team are focused this year on adapting their approach to the many external factors affecting the technology industry.
The $100 billion infrastructure bill, IT modernization and the cybersecurity executive order are all top of mind for the Red Hat team and industry as a whole. Over the course of the year, their focus will be to harness the power of open source communities to meet the stringent requirements of government agencies and to work with government partners to deliver exceptional mission outcomes to better serve citizens.
The flexibility of open source makes it a powerful tool to simultaneously tackle these new objectives and address a technology landscape that is continuously navigating the next challenge ahead.
“When it comes to navigating the challenges that the pandemic has escalated across government agencies and beyond, I firmly believe that a rising tide lifts all boats,” Conti said. “I see open source technology as that tide that will drive innovation and enable our government customers to meet these challenges head on. It’s already been an exciting first few months for me at Red Hat, and I look forward to continuing this momentum of building joint solutions with our partners to propel government agencies toward meeting their mission.”
