Red Hat Adds Enterprise Mobility Options Including Expansion of FeedHenry Platform
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Thursday, March 19, 2015|
Open source solution provider Red Hat has announced a new emphasis on enterprise mobility, leveraging its enterprise-grade open source technologies. This focus is in response to the demand for faster and continuous development cycles that challenge traditional IT infrastructure and development methodologies. Red Hats efforts includes services that companies to become more mobile-centric and evolve in a way that supports both the agility of new mobile initiatives and stability of core IT.
Red Hat is focusing its enterprise mobility vision on four areas: platform architecture, developer experience, technology integration, and collaboration in two-track IT environments.
- Platform architecture: The public cloud or private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)-based architecture of the Red Hat mobile platform facilitates agile development and DevOps processes, leverages RESTful APIs and microservices, and accelerates time-to-deployment to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
- Developer experience: A developer-centric approach that utilizes modern toolchains, collaboration, and continuous development and integration which allows organizations to use existing IT skillsets for new mobile initiatives.
- Technology integration: Simplified integration of the platform with other enterprise middleware components, based upon a common REST API architecture, captures and stores new data generated by connected devices to help unlock the value in existing systems of record.
- Collaboration in two-track IT environments: Adopting a two-track IT approach, using mobile as the catalyst for building a “fast IT” organization, helps balance agility with stability and fosters greater collaboration and cooperation between the two tracks.
Red Hat expanded its efforts in the enterprise mobile market with its acquisition of mobile enterprise application platform provider FeedHenry last fall. Since the acquisition, Red Hat has expanded the capabilities of the FeedHenry platform including:
- Release of platform enhancements for mobile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and collaboration.
- Integration of the platform into Red Hat’s integrated JBoss Developer Studio development environment (IDE).
- Deployment of FeedHenry technology as a mobile service in OpenShift as part of Red Hat’s xPaaS strategy for cloud-based application development.
Red Hat plans to continue expanding future deployment options for the FeedHenry platform and roll out new integrations with the existing Red Hat middleware product portfolio.
