POSCO ICT builds intelligent factory with open source IT from Red Hat


To help its parent company meet evolving industry and technology needs, POSCO ICT sought to cost-effectively create an intelligent factory that uses real-time data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to monitor and control facility conditions, maintain a stable operation environment, and extend the lifespan of the facility. POSCO ICT decided to deploy open source software from Red Hat to establish a scalable yet stable infrastructure to support this facility, including Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, Red Hat Virtualization, and Red Hat JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform. With these solutions, POSCO ICT has not only reduced related costs but also gained opportunities to enhance staff knowledge, foster improved collaboration with a DevOps approach, and continue to compete in global markets.
