Leading Organizations Accelerate Innovation and Business Value Across Hybrid Clouds with Red Hat Integration and Container Technologies

Customers gain greater speed, flexibility and scale by adopting an
agile integration architecture

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/3scale?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#3scalelt;/agt;–Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced that leading global companies, including
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Dirección Nacional de Migraciones de la
República Argentina, Government of Canada, Lufthansa Technik, and
Weathernews, are creating, extending and deploying integration services
across hybrid
and multicloud
environments using agile integration architectures based on Red Hat
technologies, such as Red
Hat Fuse
, Red
Hat 3scale API Management
and Red
Hat OpenShift Container Platform
. Red Hat Fuse, Red Hat 3scale API
Management and Red Hat AMQ are part of the Red Hat Integration product
portfolio.

Deploying Fuse on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the industry’s
most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform, organizations can
build, deploy, manage and scale containerized integration services for
connecting applications, APIs, data and devices on premise, and in
public or private cloud environments. With 3scale API Management,
organizations can leverage the benefits of APIs. Using an architecture
based on containers,
APIs
and distributed
integration
, organizations can improve business agility by moving
core connectivity and operations tasks away from individual applications
and into the platform.

Adopting an agile
integration
architecture enables customers to more quickly connect
disparate systems spread throughout their organization, helping to
unlock critical business data and accelerate innovation. Leading
organizations are already discovering the power of this approach to
better serve their customers and meet the rapidly changing needs of the
business, including:

  • Amsterdam
    Airport Schiphol
    : As Europe’s third largest airport,
    Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is using Red Hat solutions to expand the
    range of services it offers passengers and partners, supporting its
    goal of becoming the world’s leading digital airport. To achieve this,
    Schiphol recognized its need for a more secure, flexible and efficient
    foundation to build and deploy these services and extend them to
    partners. With Fuse-based API and integration services running on
    OpenShift Container Platform, data is able to be exchanged between the
    Airport Operational DataBase (AODB) and APIs running in the cloud,
    enabling the airport to develop and deploy new customer-facing
    services faster and more efficiently.
  • Dirección
    Nacional de Migraciones de la República Argentina
    :
    Working with Red Hat, Dirección Nacional de Migraciones de la
    República Argentina (National Migration Department), the government
    agency that oversees entry and exit to the country, created a private
    cloud platform that provides a single, comprehensive view of travelers
    to more effectively analyze potential threats and coordinate with
    national and international security organizations. As part of a digital
    transformation initiative
    , the department built a private cloud
    data environment and deployed Red Hat Fuse on OpenShift Container
    Platform to structure, connect and manage information from a variety
    of internal and third-party data sources and APIs.
  • Government of Canada: In its pursuit to provide better digital
    services to constituents, and a stronger technology foundation to
    build and deliver those services, the Government of Canada issued a
    directive mandating the use of APIs across departments and agencies.
    Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISED) created a
    multi-tenant hub that enables departments to publish APIs for internal
    and external use while also giving them the ability to manage the
    lifecycle, policies and subscription of their own APIs in a
    decentralized manner. The hub was built using 3scale API Management
    and OpenShift Container Platform, and serves as a single destination
    for both government departments and the public to subscribe to the
    APIs for powering their own innovations.
  • Lufthansa
    Technik
    : Seeking to improve airline technical
    operations and meet high customer and passenger expectations of the
    industry, Lufthansa Technik collaborated with Red Hat to build
    AVIATAR, a system that helps airlines avoid delays and cancellations
    by using data to better organize and schedule maintenance. AVIATAR
    takes advantage of hybrid cloud infrastructure from Red Hat, including
    OpenShift Container Platform, which enables the Lufthansa Technik team
    to apply DevOps and continuous improvement approaches, and Red Hat
    Fuse and 3scale API Management, which connect AVIATAR to both internal
    and external data sources and applications.
  • Weathernews:
    Weathernews Inc. is a global weather information services
    organization, providing weather data and analyses to a group of
    customers that include governments, businesses and individuals. As
    interest in weather-related information has grown, Weathernews faced
    challenges related to scaling its ability to develop and deliver
    applications and services using APIs. To help meet these challenges,
    the company deployed 3scale API Management, which provides greater
    flexibility, control and efficiency to meet demand for its services.

Mike Piech, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat
“Hybrid
integration can be a complex and challenging endeavor and can require
organizations to build and scale integration services for numerous
internal and external data sources. As Kubernetes-native platforms, Red
Hat Fuse and Red Hat 3scale API Management are designed to maximize the
benefits of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to more efficiently
manage, share and scale integrations and APIs across these container-
and microservices-based hybrid cloud architectures.”

Arie van der Veek, technology lead, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
“Schiphol
aims to provide open data through APIs. Our flight API, for example,
exposes flight information like departure time and boarding gate to
passengers and partners. We need innovative technology to deliver APIs
in a robust, scalable and more secure manner. We developed our API in
two weeks with three developers using Red Hat Fuse deployed on Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform. This allowed us to accelerate development
from months to weeks. Subsequently we deployed the API to our developer
portal, implemented with 3scale API Management, to provide more secure
access to developers. This combination of technologies allows us to
accelerate time-to-market and increase security, without compromising
reliability or scalability.”

Osmar Alza, director, Immigration Information, Dirección Nacional de
Migraciones de la República Argentina

“The new system for
migration analysis (SAM) represents a more preventive and predictive
paradigm for managing a very complex issue. The private cloud data
environment, based on technologies from Red Hat such as Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Fuse, enable us to tackle the
challenge of integrating multiple legal, law enforcement, and national
and international security data sources and make faster, more informed
decisions.”

Mohamed Frendi, Director, Government of Canada
“We believe
APIs are instrumental for building open, flexible and transformative
information systems, which is why we are enabling departments and
agencies to adopt an API-centric foundation for building and delivering
new digital services. We have enabled them to do this through a new API
store, created by the Innovation, Science and Economic Development
Canada team using Red Hat 3scale API Management and Red Hat OpenShift
Container Platform, which serves as a central, multi-tenant hub for
departments to publish and manage their APIs in a unified way.”

Tobias Mohr, head of technology and infrastructure, AVIATAR,
Lufthansa Technik

“If needed, we wanted to have the flexibility
to change direction with the AVIATAR project more quickly, and without
service disruption. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat Fuse,
and the other open source infrastructure components from Red Hat gave us
that agility. The moment we have an idea, we can start building the
product.”

Masaki Fukuda, group leader, service menu development group,
Weathernews Inc.

“Integration plays a critical role in our
ability to more quickly and effectively deliver the information that our
customers need, when they need it. APIs are at the heart of our
applications and services, and Red Hat’s technologies have enabled us to
provision resources and develop new systems and services faster.”
