Wipro Collaborates with Red Hat for Cloud Application Factory
June 26, 2017

Wipro Limited announced a collaboration with Red Hat to set up a cloud application factory designed to offer developers and IT teams a repeatable and rapid methodology for application modernization across public, private, and hybrid clouds.

Wipro’s cloud application factory will have a dedicated services team that can help drive the strategy, design, and delivery of next generation applications globally, using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat’s award-winning container application platform.

Enterprises often not just need to support legacy applications in a cost efficient manner, but also increasingly need to quickly develop new cloud-based applications that enable innovation and can drive business process transformation. Red Hat and Wipro recognize this challenge and have built a joint offering designed to address both requirements.

The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is the industry’s most comprehensive platform for cloud-native application development. As a flexible development platform, OpenShift spans across legacy and cloud environments so that customers can develop cloud-native applications without having to rewrite their legacy applications. Traditional applications can coexist alongside new, cloud-native and container-based applications.

In collaboration with Red Hat, Wipro provides dedicated IT consulting and services teams to help customers with application life cycle management, via specific roadmaps, frameworks, and best practices. From the initial discovery phase, to the strategy and design phase, and ultimately when customers are ready to build a production environment, Wipro and Red Hat teams will provide a scalable factory approach to developing next generation applications.

The Cloud Application Factory is designed to deliver key benefits, including:

- A consistent application platform for public, private, and hybrid clouds

- Reduced time to market for new applications and features

- A unified methodology developed by dedicated architecture experts

- Comprehensive interoperability planning of client’s legacy and cloud-native applications

- The ability to leverage the global open source community to drive innovation

As an open source platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform can help reduce the cost, and time associated with developing and modernizing enterprise applications.

“We have strengthened our alliance with Red Hat to build and deploy an effective and scalable team execution methodology to meet joint customer interest, today and in the future,” said Andrew Aitken, GM and Global Open Source Practice Leader, Wipro Limited.

“It's exciting when considering the potential innovation that customers can enjoy with Wipro's Cloud Application Factory powered by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This is really about helping to streamline customers’ time-to-market by deploying modern applications, in a scalable and repeatable way,” said Julio Tapia, Director, OpenShift Partner Ecosystem, Red Hat.
