Raj-Wickramasinghe

Red Hat have expanded their nearly 12 year strategic partnership to further power open hybrid cloud innovation for enterprises worldwide. The companies are jointly investing in the co-development of new solutions to help organizations more seamlessly navigate a multi and hybrid cloud world, define their strategy, and accelerate their pace of innovation to get to value faster.
 
With the combination of Accenture Cloud First and Red Hat OpenShift, organizations are better equipped to embrace the cloud continuum – a range of capabilities, from public to private to edge computing, all connected by modern networks and built with a zero-trust security mindset – to accelerate enterprise reinvention. A hybrid solution brings the public cloud benefits of innovation, speed, consumption and scale with private cloud advantages of regulatory compliance, performance and data gravity.
 
Raj Wickramasinghe, Hybrid and Emerging Platform lead at Accenture, said, “Organizations are increasingly turning to hybrid cloud to help overcome complex challenges around core business functions like customer service and supply chain, and to drive growth and innovation,” “Through our expanded alliance with Red Hat, we can further help clients embrace the cloud continuum to enable greater operational efficiency and drive innovation.”

 

Red Hat and Accenture have worked together to deliver transformative outcomes for hundreds of organizations across industries. For example, Finanz Informatik, an innovative IT partner for the financial sector, worked with Red Hat and Accenture to implement an ambitious next-level multi-channel architecture for its core banking applications. Using Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, with strategic support from Accenture, Finanz Informatik modernized its IT infrastructure to significantly improve business agility and more quickly respond to evolving customer needs.
 
Robert Bersdorf, division head for multi-channel applications at Finanz Informatik, said, “Our business-critical applications are used every day by nearly 400 financial institutions, so regulatory compliance, security and reliability are crucial,” “Our hybrid cloud strategy is critical for helping us drive resilience, while balancing agility with stability and security. By using OpenShift and Ansible Automation we took a pioneering step forward to embrace the private cloud to continuously deliver innovation while delivering a seamless experience and maintaining the performance of our own technology estate. It was a great experience working with Accenture and Red Hat on this project and together pushing the envelope.”
 
Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president, Partner Ecosystem Success at Red Hat, added“Operating in the hybrid cloud enables customers to optimize their existing systems with the added layers and capabilities necessary to support innovation and efficiency at scale. At Red Hat, we believe that success not only lies in the technical components we bring to the cloud, but also with the impactful partnerships that drive successful implementations and business outcomes. Our long-standing collaboration with Accenture means that customers have access to the open source solutions they need and expertise they can trust to navigate the complexities of open hybrid cloud and grow their business where it needs to be – in the cloud.”
