Partners: Red Hat and Accenture
Unlock the hybrid cloud
Working together to help customers transform, optimize, and excel in the hybrid cloud era.
What we're doing together
For more than a decade, Accenture and Red Hat have teamed up to help deliver complex enterprise projects at scale. Whether to capitalize on open standards, to adopt a hybrid cloud environment, or to address trends such as automation, each partner brings its own set of unique capabilities to accelerate change within the enterprise.
Red Hat has been a leading voice in the open hybrid cloud space for years, if not decades, and provided this very holistic view of hybrid cloud using open source and open standards. What it has meant to us is that we also have to use open practices as we implement these solutions. And Red Hat is the leader in open source technology.

Accelerating insurance: cutting claims processing to minutes
Norway’s largest life insurance company, KLP, started a large change program to strengthen its market position with automation. To succeed with this new strategy, KLP required a modern pension platform that supports high-quality customer and member services while maintaining low costs. Working with Accenture, KLP created a container- and microservices-based platform using Red Hat® OpenShift® and Kubernetes. Combined with a collaborative DevOps approach and operational support from Accenture, KLP now has a foundation for custom development for several teams.
Banking: Embracing automation and reducing deployment time
At a large UK investment bank, critical systems supporting more than 10 million transactions per day needed to be transitioned to an external provider using Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Ansible® Automation Platform, and other cloud technologies. With Accenture supporting the end-to-end functional and technical design of the implementation and ongoing maintenance, the bank dramatically reduced deployment times while handling highly confidential data in compliance with regulations.
Financial services transformation: digitizing more of the business
With 52 million clients across the world, one of the biggest financial entities in Spain wanted to digitalize more of their business after an organizational change, including new business services consumed on demand. With the help of Red Hat OpenStack® Platform and Accenture services, their IT core banking team was able to have better insight on how a production-ready, on-site Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform should be operated and maintained, including predictive operations.
