Red Hat Mobile Application Platform to Serve as a Reference Platform for Telefonica’s Operators

Infrastructure

Red Hat, Inc., the provider of open source solutions, and Telefonica Business Solutions, a provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market, signed an agreement establishing Red Hat Mobile Application Platform as the global reference platform for operators within the Telefonica Group to mobilize the business processes of its customers on their path to digital transformation.

The Red Hat Mobile Application Platform has been used by Telefonica in some markets since 2012, completing Telefonica's Group Enterprise Managed Mobility proposition, as it provides users an open, agile, and collaborative approach to developing, integrating, and deploying mobile applications. A collaborative approach to mobile, enabled by open standards-based technologies such as the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, can help facilitate greater mobile adoption and maturity, as well as reduce both costs and time to market.

Organizations are increasingly investing in mobile application development to help transform the way they do business by reinventing business processes, automating existing processes, and mobilizing legacy web applications. To match the rate at which mobile is evolving in the enterprise, and better meet challenges such as security, scalability, and back-end integration, many organizations are utilizing multitenant mobile platforms with open standards, and forming collaborative and strategic mobile centers of excellence (MCoEs).

Cathal McGloin, vice president, Mobile Platforms, Red Hat:

“Mobile is increasingly finding its place as a catalyst for digital transformation in the enterprise as organizations seek to re-imagine and reinvigorate their business processes to more effectively engage their employees and customers. Telefonica is continuing to lead the way as a mobile operator in this market and we are excited to be a part of their journey.”

Juan Manuel Moreno, Telefonica Business Solutions’ Cloud Director:

“Telefonica's decision to establish the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform as its reference platform for mobile development aligns with our strategy to deploy multitenant, multi-operator solutions based on open standards. Our aim is to help expand our ecosystem of application developers, enable them to reuse code and foster greater cooperation between Telefonica’s operators around the world.”
