Red Hat and Celonis Make Hybrid Multicloud a Reality for Intelligent Business Execution

Celonis Execution Management System, implemented by IBM Consulting, now available on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, fueling customer choice in evolving business execution


Red Hat, IBM and Celonis today announced the general availability of Celonis Execution Management System (EMS) on Red Hat OpenShift Service on Amazon Web Services (AWS) (ROSA) as a managed cloud service. This enables organizations to take full advantage of the collaboration and unique expertise of each company in a multicloud environment. AWS is the first public cloud platform to offer Celonis EMS on Red Hat OpenShift, with Red Hat’s support for other public clouds planned in the near future, including Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud and Microsoft Azure.


With general availability of Celonis EMS on ROSA, we are enabling deployment flexibility for our market-leading business execution solutions across private and public cloud architectures. I’m delighted that together, we can now remove much of the legacy complexity of cloud infrastructures and empower our customers to accelerate value from digital transformation.

Chief Revenue Officer and co-owner of Celonis

In April 2021, the three companies strategically partnered to accelerate how global organizations drive business execution through process mining, data intelligence and systems automation. Despite trillions of dollars invested in digital transformation, from next-generation applications to cloud-based systems, organizations still struggle to realize full business potential due to process inefficiencies and gaps, siloed data and an overall expansion in IT complexity.

Managed and supported by Red Hat and AWS, ROSA provides a turn-key application platform that makes it easier for organizations to build, scale and manage containerized applications on OpenShift on AWS. The service combines the innovation, flexibility and open nature of an industry-leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift, with the scale and power of AWS. This combination streamlines infrastructure and operational management and enables organizations to focus purely on delivering greater business value through cloud-native transformation.

With the availability of Celonis EMS on ROSA, enterprises are able to analyze and optimize their business processes backed by the combined expertise of Celonis, IBM Consulting and Red Hat. Celonis, the global leader in execution management, provides its EMS to organizations, weaving together data, intelligence and action to allow companies to put data to work in core systems like enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM).  Celonis EMS analyzes real-time data from these systems to intelligently identify and unlock full process execution capacity across organizations.  

Celonis EMS on ROSA enables enterprises to focus on business improvement processes while taking advantage of Kubernetes innovation to speed up time to value. The offering helps reduce cloud infrastructure complexity and provides flexible deployment options for customers.

Since forging the strategic alliance earlier this year, IBM Consulting has embedded Celonis EMS into the IBM Garage Methodology and Celonis recently recognized IBM as Global Alliance Partner of the Year. By integrating Celonis EMS and using the capabilities of the Red Hat OpenShift platform, IBM Consulting intends to put the power of business execution into the hands of IBM consultants in multiple geographies and industries.
