Date: Thursday, March 7th at 6am PST / 9am EST / 3pm CET

As vendors increasingly tighten their grip on customers, businesses face the risk of being confined to single-vendor stacks, which often come with high costs, low value, and minimal flexibility. This situation can escalate expenses, inhibit innovation, and foster a dependency that undermines agility and growth. The demand for open, adaptable platforms is undeniable, yet the journey to achieve such environments without compromising support, compatibility, or security remains complex. How can enterprises ensure their Linux environments stay robust, supported, and unencumbered by restrictive vendor relationships?

Join us for this complimentary, one-hour Tech Talk, where experts will guide you through the essential strategies to sustain a resilient and flexible IT infrastructure. Discover how to make informed vendor choices that champion openness, innovation, and autonomy. Don't let vendor lock-in determine the trajectory of your Linux environment.
