RALEIGH, N.C. - —
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Norwegian airport express train operator Flytoget has deployed Red Hat's lightweight, flexible integration platform, JBoss Fuse, and API management technology developed by 3scale, acquired by Red Hat in June 2016, as part of an initiative to digitise and automate the company's key value chain.
Flytoget is a great example of how traditional businesses can create new business opportunities through the modernization of processes infrastructure.
Flytoget, which operates the airport express between Oslo Airport and the city center, is modernizing its IT infrastructure to help develop its competitive advantage in order to increase the attractiveness of public transport. As part of this modernization effort, the company is moving from on-premise servers to a cloud-based approach, and adopting DevOps practices to help the company's IT team offer its customers new features and services.
Digitizing and automating the value network across business lines and beyond traditional enterprise boundaries is an important objective for Flytoget toward the realization of its business vision and strategy for the future.
By establishing a modern and elastic integration infrastructure using JBoss Fuse and API management technology developed by 3scale, Flytoget is able to build smarter services designed to help the company remain competitive. The platform can be used to integrate with partners, both internal and external, and to establish a network of partners empowering smarter, more integrated, consumer-facing transportation services. The integration infrastructure is also expected to help the company develop internal services offerings, as well as serve Flytoget’s own mobile solutions.
This project is in line with Flytoget’s goal to use standard solutions as often as possible, in an ongoing effort for digital transformation, enabling a more agile enterprise, infrastructure to move to the cloud, and an IT department focused on DevOps.
The integration infrastructure based on JBoss Fuse and the API management technology from 3scale was implemented and supplied by Greenbird Integration Technology AS.

“We’re happy to play an important role in Flytoget’s modernization initiative. Flytoget is a great example of how traditional businesses can create new business opportunities through the modernization of processes infrastructure.”
Bjørn Hole, head of innovation and IT architecture, Flytoget
“The platform based on Red Hat JBoss Fuse and the API management technology from 3scale gives us the ability to address collaboration opportunities through a proxy, which enables us to set the very specific and sometimes narrow rules for API access that we require. It also helps us scale back-end operations easily for when we need to meet peaks in demand. We are focused on what we want to achieve, so we do not spend unnecessary time on doing things that are not value-driven. Every project we initiate should create business value.”
