Organizations are increasingly adopting an application programming interface (API)-first approach to building applications and using container management platforms to automate delivery workflow across clouds. At the same time, they are under pressure to provide developers with a streamlined experience that allows teams to modernize and deliver applications faster, and executives want visibility into the health, profitability, and security of their digital business.
The leading Kubernetes platform, Red Hat® OpenShift®, combined with Red Hat OpenShift API Management provides the foundation for delivering and managing modern applications. Red Hat hosts and manages these services, allowing teams to focus on application development and modernization rather than creating, updating, and administering their container infrastructure. The result is efficiently delivered strategic applications combined with provisioning, policy, and more security facilities in the same cloud-native pipeline.
Accelerate time to value and reduce operational costs
Red Hat OpenShift API Management, when added to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, provides a streamlined developer experience for building, deploying, and scaling cloud-native, integrated applications. The combination of enterprise-grade Kubernetes, an API-first approach to application development, and managed operations allows teams to focus on core competencies, accelerate time to value, and reduce operational costs.
