Press Release: Ammeon and Tier 2 Consulting Drive Greater IT Agility with Red Hat Product Suite

Directly reflecting the changing face of enterprise IT, two of Red Hat’s most accomplished partners will work together to support client engagements.

5 June 2017, DevOps Enterprise Summit, LONDON – Ammeon, a leading IT transformation company and Tier 2 Consulting, Red Hat’s Premier Middleware Partner for the UK & Ireland, have announced an alliance to meet an increasing demand for greater IT agility and DevOps technologies. The companies now provide a service that addresses customers’ needs from infrastructure to applications, using Red Hat products.

By modernising their technology stack through the adoption of cloud-native tools, microservices architecture and API management, organisations can become more flexible, reduce costs and speed the time-to-value. Ammeon and Tier 2 unlock these benefits by providing consulting and hands-on technical support to customers using Red Hat’s: JBoss Middleware (EAP, FUSE, BPM), OpenShift, CloudForms, 3Scale, Ansible and Satellite. Their consultants are application and infrastructure practitioners, who bridge the gap between product knowledge and frontline team requirements.

“Scaled agility and accelerated innovation are strategic imperatives for CIOs,” said Paul Shore, UK Business Manager, Ammeon. “By partnering with Tier 2, we offer customers the best-in-class technical help they need under one umbrella, making it easier to deliver on these objectives.”

Ammeon and Tier 2 have launched the OpenShift Kickstarter package, which supports IT leaders in a one month trial of Red Hat OpenShift. OpenShift is a powerful, cloud-agnostic Platform-as-a-Service based on popular containerisation tools Docker and Kubernetes.  The Kickstarter includes 5-days consultancy and training in addition to a 30-day OpenShift Evaluation Subscription and hosting.

“Openshift has become the go-to platform for teams looking to create, modify, and rapidly deploy apps on demand, with consistency and reliability”, said Andy Kennedy, MD, Tier 2 Consulting. “Our Kickstarter provides an accessible way to trial the capabilities of OpenShift within a fully supported programme.”

 The alliance between Ammeon and Tier 2 Consulting reflects a move by Red Hat to encourage collaboration between leading Red Hat partners. Red Hat’s Application Platform Partner Initiative sees complementary partners working together to service the market need for emerging technologies and to maximize customer investment in Red Hat technologies.
