Payroll company enhances service management and monitoring capabilities

Education Payroll Limited provides payroll services, valued at NZ$5.6 billion, to 2,500 schools and 99,000 teachers and support staff in New Zealand.


  • Streamline software development, testing, and deployment processes
  • Reduce time to market for new services
  • Strengthen stability for high-scale operations
  • Plan and deliver system upgrades with minimal downtime


Education Payroll worked with local Red Hat global systems integrator Deloitte New Zealand to migrate from Red Hat OpenShift 3 to Red Hat OpenShift 4.5 to simplify version updates, improve management of routine operations tasks, and take advantage of new metrics and monitoring capabilities.


  • Reduced risk and time for OpenShift upgrade process
  • Streamlined operations experience with better management of routine tasks, helping teams focus on developer-facing enhancements
  • Improved monitoring and metrics for both OpenShift and its workload, the EdPay application
