Red Hat has announced the launch of the Red Hat OpenShift Practice Builder Program in Asia Pacific. The program aims to help system integrators (SIs) build and monetize a modern cloud-native application development and delivery practice using Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat JBoss Middleware.
The Red Hat OpenShift Practice Builder Program is uniquely designed to help SIs build expertise on Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat JBoss Middleware developer tools and enable them to build and modernize applications for the cloud, to help deliver new services at lower cost and accelerate development for faster return on investment.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an award-winning application development platform that unites developers and IT operations on a single platform to build, deploy, and manage applications more consistently across hybrid cloud infrastructures. An example is the Hong Kong-based international airline, Cathay Pacific, where they have replaced their legacy infrastructure with a cloud-native stack built on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. This move has enabled Cathay to create a moreefficient and scalable platform for developing and delivering new services, enabling Cathay to create a better overall experience for their customers.
Several Asia-Pacific SIs, including NTT Data in Japan, Wipro in India, Sino-Bridge in China and Integral and ANATAS in Australia, have been involved in building the program. The Red Hat OpenShift Practice Builder Program is designed to be relevant to both established as well as “born-in-the-cloud” SIs that are building a DevOps or a modern application development practice.
Josep Garcia, vice president of Asia-Pacific Partners and Alliances, Red Hat Asia Pacific says, “System integrators are key to helping Asia Pacific companies innovate through the development of new cloud and container-enabled applications, as well as modernizing existing applications. Global systems integrators like Accenture, Atos, DXC, HCL and Wipro have already built skills and solutions on Red Hat’s technology to address their customer’s needs. We are excited to bring the Red Hat OpenShift Practice Builder Program to help SIs in this region more quickly build expertise on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes container application platform.”
Hiroshi Tomiyasu, technology and innovation general headquarters, NTT DATA says, “With agility and flexibility being increasingly identified as being important in the current volatile business environments, we are confident that our strong collaboration with Red Hat will be thebasis for our solutions. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform will be a core technology to help drive our legacy-digital integration platform, which aims to help customers migrate their on-premise assets to the cloud to maximize their value.”
