NEC and Red Hat expand collaboration to drive IT modernisation

NEC Corporation and Red Hat have announced an expanded global collaboration to drive IT modernisation and digital transformation on Red Hat OpenShift.

NEC now recognises Red Hat OpenShift, an enterprise Kubernetes platform, as its preferred container platform for mission-critical applications, and this expansion will strengthen the technical cooperation between the two companies in this area, including the formation of a Centre of Excellence and joint technology development.

NEC was recently announced as a Red Hat Premier Business Partner and was the first certified partner to support Red Hat OpenShift in Japan. Since then, NEC has emphasised helping customers to deploy and operate solutions on container applications, including Red Hat OpenShift.

Matt Hicks, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Red Hat said, “as global enterprises use increasingly more complex systems and workloads to meet dynamic market demands, the need for abstraction and simplicity across their IT footprints becomes clear. Our expanded collaboration with NEC focuses on simplifying a broad range of transformative enterprise initiatives by delivering solutions built on a single, standardised, innovation platform in Red Hat OpenShift. With Red Hat’s hybrid cloud expertise and NEC’s skill in delivering industry-specific solutions, we’re providing our joint customers with the capabilities they need to fully evolve into digital enterprises, without miring them in complexity.” 

Building on a longstanding relationship, the two companies plan to deliver solutions using Red Hat OpenShift to support NEC offerings such as Core DX, Global 5G, Digital Finance, and Digital Government to customers globally. Red Hat OpenShift provides a more consistent, powerful container platform to help organisations build, deploy, and run applications across IT environments, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or at the edge.

 Takayuki Morita, President, and Chief Executive Officer, NEC added, “We are very pleased to announce the strengthening of our strategic collaboration with Red Hat globally. Through this collaboration, NEC will adopt Red Hat OpenShift as our container platform of choice to provide solutions to government and enterprise customers who are making the digital shift by linking them with NEC's solutions for Core DX, 5G, digital finance, and digital government, which are NEC's business areas of focus. Together with Red Hat, we are confident that we can lead the expansion and success of a wide range of customers' businesses.”
