Red Hat Inc and Accenture have expanded their nearly 12-year strategic partnership to further power open hybrid cloud innovations for enterprises worldwide.

Both companies are jointly investing in the co-development of new solutions to help organizations seamlessly navigate a hybrid cloud environment, define their strategy, and accelerate their pace of innovation.

Accenture Cloud First and Red Hat OpenShift are combining to ensure that organizations are better equipped to embrace the cloud continuum, bringing benefits of innovation, speed, consumption and scale with private cloud advantages of regulatory compliance, performance and data gravity.

The two businesses are co-developing new solutions in the following areas: open hybrid cloud application and mainframe modernization, automation, edge computing and sovereign cloud.

Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president of partner ecosystem success at Red Hat, said: “At Red Hat, we believe that success not only lies in the technical components we bring to the cloud, but also with the impactful partnerships that drive successful implementations and business outcomes. Our long-standing collaboration with Accenture means that customers have access to the open source solutions they need and expertise they can trust to navigate the complexities of open hybrid cloud and grow their business where it needs to be – in the cloud.”

Rajive Wickramasinghe, hybrid and emerging platform lead at Accenture, said: “Organizations are increasingly turning to hybrid cloud to help overcome complex challenges around core business functions like customer service and supply chain, and to drive growth and innovation. Through our expanded alliance with Red Hat, we can further help clients embrace the cloud continuum to enable greater operational efficiency and drive innovation.”
