Ingo Boernig

I am totally committed to the open source software ideas and principles. Throughout my career I always worked on integrating and extending Open Source solutions in the enterprise market.

I work at Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source software solutions. I'm part of the Solution Architect team, responsible for the logistics, retail, travel and energy industry in Germany.

Before joining Red Hat in 2012 I worked in the services unit of IBM, integrating enterprise open source solutions in large organizations and worked on an open source enterprise architecture.

I started my professional career at SUSE in 1999 where the enterprise open source movement kicked off.

I have a diploma in theoretical physics and got exposed to Linux and Open Source software in the mid-nineties at university.

Patterns II – The Approach

ˈpætɚns Image source https://vecteezy.com/ Recap In the first article, we discussed the need for patterns as an architectural paradigm, in order to achieve re-usability across complex environments such as Hybrid Cloud scenarios. We identified the benefits of a pattern based approach. We talked about automation, Hybrid Cloud, and about organizational aspects We’ve learned that patterns […]

Patterns – A Path Towards Hybrid Cloud

ˈpætɚns Probably almost every time we are starting to understand and to solve a general problem, we will ask ourselves, am I the first one who is facing that problem, or have there been others who in the end either failed or succeeded. This is particularly true, if I am highly uncertain whether my own […]
