May 9, 2022
Hat and Accenture have expanded their nearly 12 year
strategic partnership to further power open hybrid cloud
innovation for enterprises worldwide. The companies are
jointly investing in the co-development of new solutions to
help organizations more seamlessly navigate a multi- and
hybrid cloud world, define their strategy, and accelerate
their pace of innovation to get to value faster.
Automation – As organizations continue to modernize, they need consistent, resilient and standardized solutions for managing their cloud estate. Accenture and Red Hat are developing solutions that automate and orchestrate workloads across the IT infrastructure to reduce risk and lower costs of technology operations. This includes the development of Accenture solutions on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform to deliver stable, automated cloud computing capabilities. As a result, the companies helped one client achieve a 99% reduction in downtime for rolling upgrades, a 100% reduction in downtime for operating system patching, and 50% faster development time through infrastructure as code.
Edge Computing – The scale and complexity of data created by connected devices are continuously pushing the limits of network and infrastructure capabilities. New solutions under development by Red Hat and Accenture are focused on analyzing and processing data where it is generated to improve the customer experience and reduce latency. With Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, applications can be deployed and automated at the edge, reducing dependency on a physical footprint.
Sovereign Cloud – Organizations are navigating an intricate patchwork of technology solutions while aligning with new, emerging industry standards and compliance requirements in various countries and sectors. Accenture and Red Hat are jointly committed to helping clients control the location, access to and processing of their data in the cloud through open source technologies and services.
Hat and Accenture have worked together to deliver
transformative outcomes for hundreds of organizations across
industries. For example, Finanz Informatik, an innovative IT
partner for the financial sector, worked with Red Hat and
Accenture to implement an ambitious next-level multi-channel
architecture for its core banking applications. Using Red
Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, with
strategic support from Accenture, Finanz Informatik
modernized its IT infrastructure to significantly improve
business agility and more quickly respond to evolving
