A panel which convened at Red Hat Summit in Boston on May 3rd consisted of the following key personnel: These executives engaged in a discussion with the audience regarding the Agile integration movement and how it relates to Red Hat endeavors. During the conversation they identified what Agile is all about then enumerated the four pillars behind it and why these are are important. These days companies need to put things such as business components or services together quickly and respond to market demands. At its base level, Agile integration is a way to get software developed more quickly. The old model involved building software, then figuring out how to tie things together. Now Agile focuses on integration up front, plus the use of smaller teams and an incremental approach — you establish what is required and how to accomplish it more effectively rather than making it into a five year plan. Red Hat states Agile is a key business indicator for their customers. It's not just about software development but also the acquisition of outside software. The Agile philosophy can also apply to broader concepts, however, such as the infrastructure of integration — how IT overall works to be more responsive — or the changes in the overall tech industry; the driving need to move faster. Ken Johnson stated: "integration has been around for decades, but the approach has centered around the technological pattern and the organizational pattern. Both fall short in terms of what modern requirements demand. The technology pattern centered around the ESB (enterprise service bus) which is monolithic; centralized software. All integration logic was centralized and subject to backlog to make changes." In the past, integration was performed by highly specialized individuals deep within the organization who knew the concept well since that was their main focus. As organizations shift they are transitioning from a centralized approach to a distributed model. These integration experts now participate in Agile teams who conduct this effort as part of their software development. This helps break up the monolith around integration. Organizations that realize that integration is a key capability for their business will adopt the model to bring integration out of the back office and to the Agile teams. It's a competency organizations need to have to deliver software quickly. Systems and services have to talk together. If you can't integrate quickly you can't deliver solutions quickly. Steve Willmot stated: "A lot of modern companies have adopted Agile software development and are moving a lot faster than they were. They are adopting organizational models for software like microservices, but they might run into a wall with delivery when integrating with older systems or release models. There's a huge frustration with such barriers. It's important to enable all software teams to do this as part of a team organization." With distributed integration, you move away from a single ESB and spread it around the company so users can implement their own services. Some technologies make possible what was impossible five years ago. JBoss Fuse and JBoss AMQ are two examples. These are lightweight technologies deployed into an integrated distribution model. These work with the principles of containers and APIs (application programming interfaces) as a deployment packaging and integration model. Containers are self-contained application bundles which contain all the necessary components to enable rapid deployment and modification. These are are critical to be able to package internal and vendor software in a manageable and scalable way. Johnson said: "Containers are a way of packaging your software, and in the context of OpenShift they can be scaled and managed centrally. If you have a consistent integration infrastructure, agile teams can work independently with common libraries and frameworks. This provides an infrastructure that ensures good practices are followed, manageable and governable." In short, standardization and reusability at the container level are a key element of Agile. APIs are the third pillar for Agile. They form a layer across all systems. Many companies are now seeking to implement APIs into core systems that can then be used by everyone. Some organizations have hundreds of APIs. These should be visible to be reused, tracked and secures. On-premise APIs can be tracked, but sometimes cloud APIs aren't tracked as easily. Willmot said: "We have a lot of customers with a hybrid cloud environment. They have numerous deployments in different elements. Now they have APIs or back end systems in each environment they need to connect together. This needs to be addressable and secure. Customers use 3scale API management to put protective layers in place. Containers manage the back-end systems. APIs are the glue layer - they provide communication, for instance. They can integrate data from different sources to produce one environment. These are no longer edge cases; they are extremely real. Johnson added: "You may have software or services you own and bringing them all together drives the need to integrate to increase customer satisfaction and a better ecosystem. Every time a customer creates an SaaS implementation that's a new island of information - it's only useful if it can be brought together with other operational data. Customers want to leverage existing investments and enable new initiatives, so expose these to APIs and build new applications to integrate with legacy systems. The key point of Agile is not just the technology but what companies can do with the skills and assets they have. The practice behind the concept requires bringing people together to use the right tools. As integration becomes pervasive, new people need to participate - not just highly skilled developers, but also key business personnel. The initiative is to bring more people into the integration fold. The cultural mindset is changing across companies, but primarily the focus is on application development. Integration has lagged behind that model of changing the organization to be more agile and meet business needs. Companies need to continue to focus on propagating the right skills out to Agile teams. SEE: How to apply Agile practices with your non-tech team or business Willmot: "One of the reasons there is a cultural change happening is that organizations are organizing their development teams differently and they need to get business elements involved. Many used to have a back end coding team and a front end deployment team which were separate entities. There could be a clash between groups. Now it's not just one team delivering a new app." The panel was asked "What is Red Hat doing to help organizations advance in a technological and cultural mindset shift?" Willmot: "At the product level we have distributed integration products such a Fuse and AMQ, OpenShift for containers which can provide a management structure and API management. We're working hard together so you'll see integration between our products. At the organizational level we work with customers to help their teams and drive organizational change via technology. Sometimes we work with partners. Innovation Labs is another concept we're trying to help customers with." Johnson: "In addition to Innovation Labs and partners, we do one-on-one service engagements; health checks to help organizations see how they have to make the shift, modify teams and use the new technology."

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMERICAN DOERS, a new 12-part video series on Time Inc.’s People.com sponsored by Advil, premieres Tuesday, November 1 at 10 am ET featuring original thinkers, innovators, craftspeople, risk-takers and artisans across the United States. AMERICAN DOERS sets out to prove that despite all the negative news, America is still the land of opportunity for anyone with an idea and a dream. These gutsy, resourceful, and tenacious individuals are today’s true pioneers who risk everything in their pursuit of success and the American dream. Their stories unfold as the host, James Marshall of Happy Marshall Productions, spends days completely immersed in their lives. Marshall lives their American Dream – working in their businesses, walking in their shoes, following their journeys – along the unpredictable path to success or setback. Episode 1 features 30-year-old Shareena Casterline of Harlem, NY, who overcame a traumatic childhood, quit her day job bartending, attended the Art Institute of Colorado’s culinary school, and in 2015 launched her own boutique e-commerce cookie-selling business, MadisonStreetBakeHouse.com. Shareena was told early on in life to “dial down” her dreams and to “lower your expectations.” She explains that these early hardships “made me a better entrepreneur. I can take a few knocks.” Given up by her parents at age 3 and later abandoned by her grandmother and aunt, the Colorado native was shuffled to different group homes and foster care placements for seven years. "As a toddler I saw myself owning a bakery in Paris or New York," says Shareena. "Never in my wildest fantasy did I think it would happen.” Adopted by Denver parents Larry and Nancy Casterline, Shareena discovered a passion for her craft early on when her loving adoptive father Larry encouraged her to cook. "Baking became an escape from my past and I was able to accept my adoptive family," she says. "The first time I realized I loved myself was when I baked a chocolate chip cookie; I knew this was my calling." AMERICAN DOERS was created by Executive Producers James Marshall and Melanie Reardon as a positive and uplifting antidote to the current negativity and divisiveness in the United States. The series strives to shine a light on everyday Americans, like Shareena, who are turning obstacles into opportunities; striving to do whatever it takes to fulfill their dreams. "James is the ultimate people-person. He's curious about everyone,” says Reardon. “I'll order a coffee and maybe catch the barista's name. James will order a coffee and ten minutes later he knows their life story and gets invited over for family dinner." Marshall travels with Shareena on her quest to get her confectionary creation, “the Maddy” – a delicate, Florentine-inspired wafer – into coffee shops and bakeries around New York City. Viewers can watch Episode 1 at 10 am ET on Tuesday, November 1 by visiting AmericanDoers.People.com. Other AMERICAN DOERS episodes slated to run on People.com in 2016 include: Eight more episodes of AMERICAN DOERS will run on People.com in 2017.

People’s Trust Insurance surpassed last year’s record-breaking number of toy donations for area children when it completes its month-long Toys for Tots drive today. Last year the company’s collection efforts gathered more than 300 toys, the most it has ever collected, and this year’s drive has topped that figure. “Though we are a statewide company, Broward County is our home, and we’re so proud of the way this community pitches in to help less privileged children feel the spirit of the season,” said George Schaeffer, the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Bringing people together for a larger purpose is what the holidays are really all about.” The Toys for Tots program, conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, collects toys for less-fortunate children. This was People’s Trust Insurance’s sixth annual Toys for Tots drive. While final donations have not yet been fully counted, Schaeffer said the total has already bettered last year. Toys collected within Broward County will be donated to less-fortunate children within the local community. Across America between October and mid-December, Toys for Tots drives collect new, unwrapped toys. Local community and philanthropic organizations distribute the toys to children in need throughout their area. Toys for Tots brings members of the community together for a common cause, while helping countless youngsters become responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Founded in 2008, People's Trust Insurance has emerged as one of Florida's top 10 home insurance companies, providing homeowners with affordable rates and benefits not available anywhere else. Honored with the 2013 Enterprise Florida Governor's Innovators in Business Award, People's Trust provides a "Better Way" for nearly 150,000 Floridians to insure their homes. With more than 600 employees in its family of companies and an affiliation with Florida's largest residential insurance restoration general contractor, People's Trust is Florida's best-prepared home insurance company and a full partner in policyholders' recovery after loss. The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less-fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. Local Toys for Tots campaign coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, including golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

The announcement pairs one of Florida’s foremost industry leaders with one of the most successful Florida-grown homeowners insurance companies. Gallagher was Florida’s Chief Insurance Regulator from 1989-95 and 2001-02 and served as the state’s first Chief Financial Officer from 2003 to 2007. For the past five years he has been a government and insurance consultant for the Colodny Fass law firm, which specializes in insurance regulation and associated work. “Tom is exactly the right man for the job, and all of us at People’s Trust Insurance are delighted to have him on our team,” said George Schaeffer, the company’s Chief Executive Officer. “Tom’s credentials in our industry and our state are second to none, and I know he will help lead us to even greater achievements as we meet the needs of our policyholders.” People's Trust Insurance has emerged as one of Florida's top 10 home insurance companies, providing homeowners with affordable rates and benefits not available anywhere else. The company pioneered a direct repair program with the promise that the company would fix damage to policyholders’ homes through its affiliated company, the Rapid Response Team, rather than just writing a check and leaving the burden of repairs to the homeowner. The company was honored with the 2013 Enterprise Florida Governor's Innovators in Business Award, and its exceptional business model was proven during last year’s active hurricane season. Rapid Response Team crews performed emergency mitigation on more than 1,250 homes following Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew, and Tropical Storm Colin – removing downed trees, boarding up shattered windows, extracting water and installing tarps on damaged roofs. “People’s Trust Insurance caught the eye of everyone familiar with Florida’s insurance industry when it launched its innovative direct repair model, and I’ve watched it with respect and admiration ever since,” said Gallagher. “I welcome the opportunity to help guide this outstanding company and look forward to continued success.” All People’s Trust Insurance executives will report to Gallagher in his role as Chief Operating Officer. He will also serve as a member of the company’s Executive Committee. Founded in 2008, People's Trust Insurance has emerged as one of Florida's top 10 home insurance companies, providing homeowners with affordable rates and benefits not available anywhere else. Honored with the 2013 Enterprise Florida Governor's Innovators in Business Award, People's Trust provides a "Better Way" for over 145,000 Floridians to insure their homes. With more than 600 employees in its family of companies and an affiliation with Florida's largest residential insurance restoration general contractor, People's Trust is Florida's best-prepared home insurance company and a full partner in policyholders' recovery after loss.
