Additionally, Zimbra’s president of worldwide field operations, senior vice president of worldwide channels and vice president of sales for the Americas will be available to discuss open source, Zimbra’s secure collaboration offering and the value of Zimbra’s partner network.
“Open source is core to Zimbra’s DNA, and the Red Hat Summit is the ideal event for sharing our knowledge of open source and secure, private clouds,” said Brent Rhymes, president of worldwide field operations at Zimbra. “With a vibrant open source community, our partners and customers appreciate the scalability and extensibility of a secure collaboration solution built on open source and open standards.”
“Open source is at the heart of technology initiatives ranging from cloud computing and big data to social media and mobile,” said Jackie Yeaney, executive vice president of strategy and marketing at Red Hat. “As a result, Red Hat Summit has become a must-attend event to learn about emerging trends in enterprise open source, and as our 10th annual conference, we’re planning for our largest and most exciting event to date. We’re thrilled to have Zimbra’s support for Red Hat Summit 2014, and look forward to connecting customers and our broad partner ecosystem to discuss how to make open hybrid cloud a reality in their organizations.”
