Red Hat Expands Mobile Vision to Support Containerized Mobile App Development Based on Modern Application Technologies

New Red Hat Mobile Application Platform deployment options help enterprises deliver mobile-centric solutions which are defined by cloud native, microservices-based, and agile approaches

RALEIGH, N.C. – OCTOBER 13, 2016 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the release of Red Hat Mobile Application Platform as a fully containerized offering designed to run in any public cloud, private cloud or on-premise infrastructure that supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Together with Red Hat’s existing SaaS-based mobile app platform, enterprises now have a wider set of deployment options to integrate, manage, and scale their mobile app initiatives to meet their business objectives.

The move to a fully containerized platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, based on docker-format containers and Kubernetes, is part of Red Hat’s strategy to provide a single, integrated platform for modern application development that is cloud native, mobile-centric, microservices-based, and API-driven. This new generation of app development tools also support DevOps and agile processes to help businesses innovate and respond to the ever-changing needs of the digital enterprise.

Deployment of Red Hat Mobile Application Platform on OpenShift provides a common platform to support mobile workloads running alongside traditional enterprise applications that need to be moved to the cloud. With the new option for a fully supported on-premise deployment capability, customers can meet their specific management, regulatory and policy requirements for their mobile solutions.

In keeping with its commitment to open source, Red Hat also announced the availability of workforce management (WFM) modules as a tech preview, based on the open source FeedHenry RainCatcher community project. These JavaScript and Node.js-based modules can help speed the creation of customized mobile workforce management solutions that automate, optimize and simplify field workforce processes. Using the modules, organizations can compose mobile apps more quickly and easily to drive greater efficiency in field workforce operations.

Cathal McGloin, vice president, Mobile Platforms, Red Hat

“The pursuit of digital transformation is giving rise to a new mobile enterprise, where application development is increasingly defined by emerging architectures, processes and platforms that can deliver greater business agility. Red Hat offers organizations a powerful stack, based on these modern technologies, to develop, integrate, deploy, and manage mobile applications alongside traditional workloads running in this portable cloud-agnostic containerized environment.”

Jeffrey Hammond and Michael Facemire, The Future of Mobile Experience Development, August 2016 Forrester Report

“Modern applications are complex, multi-tiered, and omnichannel. They arrive faster, scale up and down as necessary, and create value quicker than traditional applications. And developers often compose, rather than code, them. Development leaders must embrace modern application development techniques to achieve long-term success building mobile experiences.”
