Wondering how Red Hat is helping its customers succeed? We regularly publish customer success stories that highlight how we're helping customers gain efficiency, cut costs, and transform the way they deliver software. This month we'll look at how Condis Supermarcats and Omnitracs worked with Red Hat on their own digital transformation journeys.
Kubernetes and microservices in aisle three
Condis Supermarcats is a family-owned supermarket chain that is a household name in central and northern Spain. The company operates more than 400 physical storefronts, ranging from hypermarkets to local convenience stores, and a growing digital business.
In 2017, Condis began several high-profile projects as part of its digital transformation efforts, including launch of a new customer resource management (CRM) system and a customer-facing mobile application. To support these projects, Condis’s IT team sought to better integrate the company’s IT infrastructure with microservices.
"Our architecture was not cloud-integrated or suited for the agile approach we needed to develop our digital business," said Sergio Murillo, Technology Development and IT Operations Manager at Condis. "For example, each Condis store has access to a customer database, centralized using a cloud-based tool. However, we needed this data exchange to be integrated seamlessly with our CRM."
Condis worked with Mindcurv, a Red Hat Advanced Solution Provider Partner, to design and implement a microservices environment based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Kubernetes. As a long-time customer of Red Hat, Condis’s use of Oracle databases led it to change its operating system to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The company wanted to take advantage of Red Hat’s Kubernetes capabilities and enterprise support.
Implementation of OpenShift-based microservices was completed quickly and operational just 3 months later. The new environment has helped Condis successfully bridge its legacy IT systems with its more modern but closed-source Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) database.
