Accelerate application delivery with Red Hat Consulting

DevOps and containers help teams adapt to a competitive landscape

Business leaders are embracing DevOps to keep up with market demand. Container platforms with Kubernetes orchestration are a new category of enterprise software, offering powerful technology to accelerate the development and delivery of applications. While containers help developers package applications for consistent deployment, they also provide a framework and common language that links development and operations teams. 

However, the road to container adoption can be complex. To gain the full benefit of containers, you need a flexible program that incrementally delivers modern, container-based infrastructure—with the necessary organizational process changes. 

Red Hat® Consulting provides a blueprint for accelerating your time to value via a comprehensive program that addresses three workstreams—infrastructure, release management, and application development—that help you succeed with containers today and prepare for future opportunities. Bridging on-premise and hybrid cloud environments, Red Hat experts will work with you to implement a custom solution—based on Red Hat and certified partner products, targeted training, and extensive experience—turning isolated container experimentation into scaled container adoption, while simultaneously transforming IT teams and processes.

Infrastructure: Build a production container platform

Deploying and operating containers at scale requires the coordination of infrastructure, management tooling, and operational practices. Through a tailored journey, Red Hat Consulting will partner with you to build and operationalize a production container platform enhanced through rapid releases that address security, reporting, resiliency, and governance.

Release management: Adopt CI/CD and automation

Red Hat Consulting will work with you to achieve container-driven continuous delivery in your organization, so you can deliver frequent, rapid, automated application releases that meet or exceed business demands. We will build and optimize a secure deployment pipeline with test automation and metrics to identify bottlenecks as they occur. We will then help your team maintain and expand those pipelines to continually improve software delivery performance.

Application development

Market demands force application development teams to be more rapid, iterative, continuous, reliable, and collaborative. We will work with your teams on the necessary process changes to experience DevOps and become agile—accelerating your success and maximizing your investment in containers. We will use Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to give influencer development teams necessary techniques and practices to inform broader transformation efforts. Also, through a core team of application onboarding specialists, we will help facilitate mass adoption of containers throughout your development organization and application portfolio.
