K-Businesscom wins "Sky Rocket Award" with KBC Platform-X
Together with their long-standing partner Red Hat, the experts at K-Businesscom have developed the basis for KBC Platform-X, relying on new technologies from the field of enterprise open source software. The innovative strength of K-Businesscom as a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider, which flowed into the flexible and modular solution development, has now been honored with the Red Hat "Sky Rocket Award" during the Red Hat Partner Kickoff Austria.
"We are very pleased to have received the "Sky Rocket Award" for our K-Businesscom AG initiatives in the Red Hat Ecosystem at the Red Hat Partner Kickoff Austria. This award is a great motivation for our first-class team, which repeatedly delivers container and automation solutions with a great deal of commitment, dedication and strong technology from Red Hat," explains Martin Schober, Vice President Digital Solutions at K-Businesscom. "In today's world, solutions are becoming increasingly complex. It can be difficult for organizations to keep up with the speed at which new technologies are being developed today. Red Hat's open source approach harnesses the potential of a huge community and turns it into an enterprise-ready product."
Red Hat OpenShift is ideally suited for enterprise use. As a platform for both container orchestration and application development, Red Hat OpenShift offers various options for making software available even faster in companies. Included components such as monitoring, load balancing and Operator Lifecycle Manager provide more time for operations. Red Hat OpenShift can be integrated into existing development processes and adapted to existing CI/CD specifications. Medium-sized companies as well as large corporations can benefit from this modular solution.
"Together with K-Businesscom, we can accompany and support our customers in future topics such as containerization in digitization, AI/ML solutions in cloud environments and hybrid container environments," adds Dieter Ferner-Pandolfi, Country Manager Austria at Red Hat.
The advantage of Red Hat OpenShift is the automated application deployment. Changes and new applications can be deployed to production more quickly and easily by different teams. The data center operations team no longer needs to be involved in the release process. This leads to rapid customer feedback and saves time and money in software development. Customers can combine the advantages of on-premise and cloud solutions. At the same time, the data remains under the customer's control and, if necessary, secured by KBC Security Managed Services.
"The collaboration with Red Hat, the technology leader in the field of supported operating systems, is characterized by a very high standard of quality and reliability. It is important that reliable partners such as Red Hat and KBC work together in the enterprise sector in order to be able to provide appropriate enterprise support. As a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider, we can also facilitate the complete operation of the entire solution for our customers," adds Martin Schober from K-Businesscom.
