CA Technologies transforms app development with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

With Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, CA Technologies provides enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to its development teams to more quickly build and deploy web-based apps for customers.

The path to success

Challenge: Deliver enterprise-ready apps faster

Without apps, businesses can’t run back-end operations or provide services to customers. To help its enterprise customers stay competitive in a rapidly shifting application economy, CA Technologies needed a solution to let its development teams deliver secure, innovative apps to customers faster. “These days, every company is a software company. … This is why we need to keep innovating so that we can solve their problems as they go forward in the market,” said Howard Abrams, distinguished engineer at CA Technologies.

Case study

CA Technologies transforms app development with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

Solution: Build a flexible platform to deploy secure, web-based apps

Using a PaaS solution, CA Technologies' internal development teams can more quickly build and deploy scalable, secure web-based apps for external customers. The apps can handle rapid usage growth and sudden spikes at peak times without compromising service reliability and user experience. “That calls for a totally different architecture … [than what] we’ve dealt with traditionally,” said Abrams.

Results: Meet customer demand for steady stream of apps

CA Technologies can now take new web-based app offerings from concept to production and deploy them more quickly than ever. Faster, more frequent software releases mean customers are better able to compete. While it used to take months to deploy new software, CA Technologies can now get new releases or updates into production in just a few days.

I didn’t think we would get that kind of performance [from Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform] out of the gate. ... Well, I shouldn't have worried ... it just works.
