Forget your double-clicking or drag-and-dropping. The Platform Centre of Excellence (CoE) empowers and accelerates engagements across the Deloitte and Red Hat customer networks.

When customer reach and innovation is at an all-time high, the ability to respond with speed, agility and quality are paramount. Gone are the days where months are spent figuring out how to build a more secure application development and delivery platform that serves the changing needs of business whilst also bringing value to end-users. Deloitte and Red Hat recognise this two-part challenge.

Together they announced the Deloitte and Red Hat Platform Centre of Excellence (CoE), a program designed to help their joint customers leverage distributed and containerised workloads on Red Hat OpenShift. Drawing on their combined expertise, they created this CoE with the goal of enabling Organisations to add value without the heavy lifting required to build the solution from scratch. With OpenShift at the heart of this offering, the Platform CoE unites a suite of both engineering services and assets to help deliver more secure, resilient and scalable OpenShift foundations for customers.

Deloitte’s long-term business, advisory, and technological acumen partnered with Red Hat’s global leadership, advocacy, and delivery of enterprise-grade open source software solutions resulted in the development of a best-in-class Platform CoE with Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. Through the CoE, organisations gain the support of both Deloitte’s consulting and management expertise and Red Hat technology to accelerate time-to-value for customers.

What Deloitte and Red Hat say

To address the immediate needs of your business, meet your engineering and development teams where they are in the containerisation journey, and provide a Platform-as-a-Service solution that works where you’re the most comfortable, four methods for consumption and enablement are available.

“Teach Me to Fish”

This is for teams that would like to learn how to build and maintain an enterprise-class Kubernetes platform, but don’t have the time and skills to go it alone. Working together with the CoE team, we help you build from established, best-in-class platform templates which can be customised to meet your needs. The process starts with a needs analysis and takes you through go-live and ongoing support as needed.
