Red Hat Launches Open Innovation Labs in Singapore

Red Hat Open Innovation Labs help customers integrate people, methodology, and technology to catalyze innovation and solve business challenges in an accelerated fashion by working collaboratively in an immersive, residency-oriented lab environment with Red Hat experts at the new physical lab in Singapore or in a pop-up lab at a customer’s site.

Through Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, IT teams work closely with Red Hat consultants, engineers and subject matter experts to modernize existing applications or create new ones with open source and DevOps. The typical Red Hat Open Innovation Labs residency lasts anywhere from one to three months and provides IT professionals with the technologies, methods, and skills to accelerate business initiatives.

Through hands-on instruction, teams can also learn how to adopt agile development methodologies, DevOps practices, and get immediate and direct experience with the open principles and open culture that underlie many open source communities.

As digital transformation reshapes industries, organizations of all sizes and across industries are rethinking their approach to innovation and how technology can help them compete more effectively. Red Hat Open Innovation Labs launched in 2016 based on customer interest in applying Red Hat’s vast open source expertise to help them solve these business and IT challenges. Red Hat Open Innovation Labs provides a prescriptive environment designed for customers to develop applications with speed, agility, scalability and increased security.

As part of the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs engagement, customers can use microservices, deploy them in containers, and deliver them using DevOps methodologies across physical, cloud and mobile environments to more quickly scale up or down on-demand and help meet new requirements. In addition to its location in Singapore, Red Hat also has physical Red Hat Open Innovation Labs in Boston and London.

Core features of an Open Innovation Labs residency include:

  • Solve legacy problems or entirely new challenges: Customers can take advantage of mentoring and technology to help their organization design and develop solutions to modernize legacy applications or take on entirely new challenges developing applications, architectures, and features for mobile, cloud, microservices, and more.
  • Work on real business problems from day one: Using Red Hat’s push button infrastructure and automated development environments, customers can quickly start development, resulting in quicker time to value and measurable outcomes.
  • Learn to work the open source way: Customers can collaborate with Red Hat experts and with the open source community on upstream projects using an agile-based methodology, open source tools, and best practices for application development.
  • Innovate anywhere: With a more secure cloud environment, any authorized team members can work together from anywhere at any time. Development can happen at a customer’s site, in an Open Innovation Labs facility, or virtually.

SSM Wins The 2017 Red Hat Innovation Award!

October 3, 2017 – According to Red Hat, the percentage of businesses with advanced digital transformation strategies and implementations will rise in the next few years. As rapid application development is a necessity now, open source is increasingly being seen as a default choice for organizations in Malaysia and the region, enabling them to keep up with the evolving technology landscape.

 

The 2017 Red Hat Forum

Speaking at the 2017 Red Hat Forum Media Briefing here, Damien Wong, Vice President and General Manager at Red Hat ASEAN shared that though every organization has its own unique set of needs and obstacles when it comes to their digital transformation journey, Red Hat has noted three common challenges amongst its customers across numerous industries.

The challenges that have been identified are determining a cloud strategy that complements the business; building and delivering new applications faster; and utilizing the technology that is currently in place whilst bringing it up to speed to meet the overall business needs.

As organizations in Malaysia and the region have to build new applications to meet ever-evolving business demands, it is crucial for them to innovate continuously through rapid development and modern operations. In line with this, today, Red Hat named Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) as the winner in Malaysia for the 2017 Red Hat Innovation Awards (APAC) for their outstanding and innovative usage of Red Hat solutions.

SSM recently embarked on a journey of developing a new and advanced gateway for the registration of companies and businesses in Malaysia. SSM now uses Red Hat’s Middleware solution, Red Hat JBoss Fuse to simplify and speed up the registration process by reducing manual registration handling with an automated online system.

By deploying Red Hat JBoss Fuse, SSM is now better positioned to meet current and future integration needs, and reduce manual touch points, automate processes, and connect assets for improved efficiency.
