OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat Benefits Estimator (powered by Alinean)

Here at Alinean, we help some of the best technology solution providers convey the business benefits of their solutions to their customers.  In doing so, we see many different types of technologies and solutions and the corresponding business benefits that those provide.

On occasion, we are excited to identify a technology that really has a compelling value proposition and provides profound benefits to enterprise IT.  Based on our research, we see OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat as one of those straightforward technologies that can make a big impact on a quite reasonable investment.

In today’s “do more with less” economy you likely struggle to deliver enterprise applications as quickly as required, while at the same time under constant pressure to reduce development costs.

A typical application development project today takes 4 months to deliver and costs between $100,000 and $150,000.[1]  Your time frames and costs might be higher or lower depending on your business, but if you are like most, there are opportunities to reduce waste, streamline processes and optimize resource utilization:
  • How much time and effort do your application developers waste in setting up application development, testing and hosting environments, when they could be coding?
  • What IT resources are consumed with provisioning and systems management of the application platform stack?
  • How much do you spend standing-up and evolving the production, development and test environments?
What if you could?
  • Accelerate app delivery by 45%
  • Lower system configuration time and effort by 85%
  • Reduce improve resource utilization by 25%
  • Reduce application development costs by 10%
  • Reduce IT infrastructure needs by 25%
These benefits are available, leveraging OpenShift Enterprise's automation technologies to standardize and streamline developer workflows. OpenShift Enterprise is a platform as a service (PaaS) designed to provide an on-demand, elastic, scalable, and fully configured application development, testing, and hosting environment for application developers so they can focus on coding those new application services.

With a balance between reducing costs and accelerating delivery, a 20% savings in legacy development costs and accelerated delivery can be achieved. [2]

Can you achieve similar benefits? Since each business’s development requirements are so different, it can be difficult interpreting what these benefits can mean for your own unique challenges and environment.

Red Hat realized this challenge, and worked with the IT value experts at Alinean to create the OpenShift Enterprise Benefits Estimator, an online tool enabling teams to better understand their own application development and delivery challenges, and calculate the potential benefits of using PaaS to optimize development resources and streamline application delivery.

Take the challenge to quantify your current application development opportunities and determine if OpenShift Enterprise could help:
