In the highly competitive financial services industry, accurately predicting risk profiles is key. But analytics applications used to determine risk are typically large and compute-intensive, requiring a powerful technology stack that incudes parallel processing and compute accelerators. Open source technology can be a viable solution, delivering more flexibility, adaptability, and cost savings.

The beauty of open source software is that anyone can download the code and then install, configure and use it. The challenge is doing so in a production environment at scale. That’s what communications service providers (CSPs) face as they build out platforms at scale to operate cloud environments that serve millions of users. These cloud platforms include compute, networking and storage hardware as well as software to automate, manage, monitor and secure the platform.

We at Red Hat love to talk about how open source technologies and Red Hat solutions help companies around the world innovate and excel. Every now and then, though, it’s nice to talk about – and be recognized for – our own innovation. Just recently Red Hat was awarded a 2016 Omega Award for Sustained Innovation from ACG Research, an analyst and consulting firm that focuses on the service providers’ networking and the telecom industry.

Why do salmon swim upstream? Scientists have deduced that if the riverbed was a good place for them to start, it will suffice for their offspring. Thus they spawn and their offspring return to the ocean to feed. But what if some of the fish, en route to the sea, took a tributary at a fork in the river? They might get lost, fail to reach the ocean and perhaps starve or exhaust themselves trying to find the original route. Developing software using open source principles follows a similar theory.

Swisscom, a leading telco and IT services provider in Switzerland, had a clear vision: simplify its internal IT infrastructure. So several years ago, the telco mapped a cloud strategy to consolidate IT functions onto one platform, then enlisted Red Hat to help it build a secure, flexible, and unified foundation using open source technology and open standards. The result? A cloud environment based on OpenStack that’s accelerating development and delivery of new services for customers, boosting revenue and advancing innovation.
