Inside Open Innovation Labs Residency (Part 3)

inside open innovation labs
This article is the final in a series taking the reader on a journey. We're taking a peek inside life in a Red Hat Open Innovation Labs residency.

This is the top tier experience for any customer*, exposing them to open collaboration, open technologies, and fast agile application delivery methods.

This experience often escapes organizations attempting digital transformation, so through submersion in an Open Innovation Labs residency Red Hat shares its experience in managing, developing, and delivering solutions with communities, open technologies and open collaboration.

Join me as I share experiences from inside a real life residency, watching Red Hat work intimately with a customer, exposing new ways of working, leveraging open technologies using fast, agile application delivery methods and open collaboration.

In the first part, I shared what's in a Red Hat Open Innovation Labs Residency. Then in part two, I looked at what I encountered as the residency progressed towards delivery. All that's left is to share the delivery week, known as Demo Day.
