ASEAN Enterprises Accelerate Digital Transformation Initiatives With Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform


Platform enables users to more quickly develop, host and scale applications in cloud environments

SINGAPORE, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that enterprises in the ASEAN region have adopted Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to enable faster application delivery. Ranging from the telecommunications and financial services industries, organizations in ASEAN are deploying Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to enable their developers to more quickly develop, host, and scale applications in cloud environments.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is the first and only container-centric, hybrid cloud solution built from Linux containers, Kubernetes, Project Atomic and OpenShift Origin upstream projects based on the trusted backbone of the world's leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides a more secure, stable platform for container-based deployments without sacrificing current IT investments, allowing for mission-critical, traditional applications to coexist alongside new, cloud-native and container-based applications.

In the ASEAN region, Red Hat has seen a stronger momentum for its container application platform, highlighted by several recent Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform deployments in markets like Singapore and Indonesia, including: Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Negara (BTPN) (Indonesia); CrimsonLogic (Singapore); Federal International Finance (Indonesia); Rutledge Global (Singapore) and XL Axiata (Indonesia).

Affirming its innovation in container-based and cloud-native application development, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform received the 2017 Cloud Technical Breakthrough award in February 2017.

A 2016 IDC study on the The Business Value of Red Hat OpenShift[1], sponsored by Red Hat, found that OpenShift enables customers to respond to market requirements faster by delivering business-critical, microservices-based applications with DevOps processes. These benefits include 66% faster application delivery times, $1.29 million average annual benefits per 100 application developers per year, and 531% average ROI over five years.

Karim Siregar, IT director, Bank BTPN

"Our key strategic initiative is to transform ourselves to become a customer-centric digital bank, putting our customers at the center of what we do. As part of this journey a complete overhaul of the IT process and infrastructure is underway. To achieve this, we needed to build a new fully-automated and robust, end-to-end development pipeline. After thorough consideration, Red Hat OpenShift Cntainer Platform was the logical choice for us because of its capabilities, features and performance. On top of that, during the implementation, Red Hat's support was superb and showed commendable commitment."

Nicholas Wee, chief architect, Product Group & Architect Office, CrimsonLogic

"CrimsonLogic's next generation of products and solutions are designed and built for the cloud, which means we need to have the ability to scale rapidly in a controlled manner. Our platform of choice needs to show reliability in supporting the use of Linux containers while providing interoperability between different technology stacks, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). We are pleased that Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform has proved itself capable of handling these requirements."


Anne Joseph, CEO, Rutledge Global

"Rutledge recognizes the need for business transformation across industries including energy. We approached Red Hat for innovative solutions that would enable us to create a distributed architecture for our applications. Our platform, built on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, has reduced the incremental effort and cost to develop and maintain modular software and hardware networks designed around business logic. Now, data and technology driven decisions made across business functions is quite straightforward to implement and scale for us. We believe the future for IoT applications will be based on the open source subscription model and we are proud to collaborate with Red Hat and offer our platform to other enterprises."
