IBM and Red Hat: Bringing Worlds Together

IBM and Red Hat: A Match Made on Cloud Nine

What does the combination of IBM and Red Hat truly mean to customers? This is a valid question from current IBM or Red Hat customers, as well as from anyone looking to adopt an enterprise standard for cloud-native development, application modernization, integration, or the management of complex, hybrid multi-cloud environments.

To put it simply, now that IBM and Red Hat are one company, organizations now have access to the most robust and powerful open-source platform to build, manage, and secure applications across any cloud environment while harnessing the full power of their data.

Prolifics is one of the few companies in the market that can help you understand why you should leverage the tightly integrated solutions from IBM and Red Hat. We also help illustrate how to successfully implement them as a part of your organization’s hybrid cloud journey.

Companies are facing fierce competitive pressures to develop innovative and disruptive solutions faster than the speed of business, all while adhering to security and regulatory challenges. This is enough to keep any C-level executive up at night. As an IBM Platinum Partner and a Red Hat Apex Partner, Prolifics is uniquely positioned to help you address all of these challenges, using one of the most cost-effective and innovative approaches available in the industry.

A Sample Solution: Red Hat OpenShift + IBM Cloud Pak for Data

  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform: The leading open source application and container orchestration platform available on the market.
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Data: The leading hybrid cloud data and AI platform, delivering an information architecture for AI.

Cloud Pak for Data can run natively on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Containerizing data and AI services enables enterprises to run a hybrid cloud environment so that sensitive data can be analyzed in a dedicated environment, while less sensitive data can be analyzed on any public cloud. You can also leverage the power of IBM Watson, the world’s leading AI for business, and access the scale and expertise of Prolifics services to design, deploy, and manage advanced analytics that help you deliver business value.
