Red Hat ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index Reveals Mobile Adoption Is Steadily Rising

Redhat Logo While many organisations in Australia and New Zealand have established an enterprise mobile strategy, there is still work to be done to get the full benefits, according to findings from the ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index report, released today by Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions.

The study, which provides a snapshot of enterprise mobile strategies and adoption across Australia and New Zealand, found that 65 per cent of respondents have an enterprise mobile strategy in place. Yet, just 15 per cent of respondents have a mobile-first strategy, which means that mobile devices and applications are used across the organisation as a means to transform business processes to drive innovation in a unified way.

To be successful in gaining the benefits from their mobile strategy, organisations should evolve in a way that supports both the agility of new mobile initiatives and the stability of core IT functions. Infrastructure that supports an agile approach to mobility-based business solutions gives organisations the capacity to quickly make changes and innovate.

Key findings from the Index include:

  • Many enterprise mobile strategies are internal-facing. 64 per cent of respondents are targeting employees with their mobile strategies, while 27 per cent are targeting customers. This suggests there is room for organisations to respond to increased demand from customers to engage with organisations via mobile platforms.
  • Security is a major challenge to enterprise mobility development. Almost 80 per cent of respondents identified security as a ‘high priority’ (45 per cent) or second ’high priority’ (33 per cent) challenge to the mature development of an enterprise mobile strategy. This is followed by back-end integration, with 23 per cent of respondents identifying it as a ‘high priority’ challenge. This is not surprising, given the close relationship between the two, as organisations must focus not only on securing data but also securely integrating apps into business systems. Many platform solutions and Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) platforms today are designed to address both needs.
  • IT skills shortages are preventing mobile maturity. Just over half (51 per cent) of respondents indicated that their companies do not have the right skills internally to develop and support their mobile enterprise strategy. This suggests the ANZ region is experiencing a skills shortage in the areas of mobile integration and application development. Organisations should consider using a central mobile platform to foster collaboration between internal and external third parties to help alleviate these resource and skills issues.

 Methodology

The Red Hat ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index canvassed the opinions of 150 senior IT and management decision-makers (89 in Australia and 61 in New Zealand). The Index was conducted by third-party marketing company Outsource and sponsored by Red Hat.

Red Hat Outlines Vision to Help Enterprise IT Take ‘Mobile First’ From Hype to Reality

Redhat LogoSydney, AustraliaRed Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced its vision to help organisations succeed in the mobile-first economy. Customers can take advantage of Red Hat’s experience and leadership in enterprise IT, and its portfolio of enterprise-grade open source technologies – including mobile capabilities from the recent acquisition of FeedHenry – to overcome their mobility challenges.

Mobility is increasingly becoming a top priority for business as a means to drive innovation and streamline operational efficiency; however, it is also creating demand for faster and continuous development cycles that challenge traditional IT infrastructure and development methodologies. To become mobile-centric, enterprises must evolve in a way that supports both the agility of new mobile initiatives and stability of core IT.

In response, Red Hat is focusing its enterprise mobility vision on four areas: platform architecture, developer experience, technology integration, and collaboration in two-track IT environments.

• Platform architecture: The public cloud or private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)-based architecture of the Red Hat mobile platform facilitates agile development and DevOps processes, leverages RESTful APIs and microservices, and accelerates time-to-deployment to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
• Developer experience: A developer-centric approach that embraces modern toolchains, collaboration, and continuous development and integration allows organisations to use existing IT skillsets for new mobile initiatives.
• Technology integration: Simplified integration of the platform with other enterprise middleware components, based upon a common REST API architecture, captures and stores new data generated by connected devices to help unlock the value in existing systems of record.
• Collaboration in two-track IT environments: Adopting a two-track IT approach, using mobile as the catalyst for building a “fast IT” organisation, helps balance agility with stability and fosters greater collaboration and cooperation between the two tracks.

Since accelerating into the enterprise mobile market with the October 2014 acquisition of FeedHenry, a leading mobile enterprise application platform provider, Red Hat has achieved several notable milestones in its mobile journey, including:
• Release of platform enhancements for mobile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and collaboration.
• Integration of the platform into Red Hat’s award-winning integrated development environment (IDE), JBoss Developer Studio.
• Deployment of FeedHenry technology as a mobile service in OpenShift as part of Red Hat’s xPaaS strategy for cloud-based application development.
• Customers in industries ranging from manufacturing and transportation to workforce management are using Red Hat mobile technologies to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and extend critical enterprise systems to mobile devices.
• Recognition of the FeedHenry platform as the top Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) in a sector analysis by GigaOM Research.

Red Hat plans to expand deployment options for the FeedHenry platform and roll out new integrations with the existing Red Hat middleware product portfolio, giving enterprises greater freedom of choice by extending its industry-leading capabilities across hybrid environments.

“The mobile phenomenon has had a profound impact on the way we think and act and consume information in our daily lives. That impact is now rippling throughout enterprise IT as organisations come face-to-face with the reality of doing business in a new ‘mobile first’ world, where speed and agility must be prioritised without forsaking the stability of core IT. Our vision is to help enterprises evolve in a digital world and provide them with an open and flexible architecture and the technologies that accelerate this transition.”

Chris Marsh, principal analyst, Enterprise Mobile App Strategies, 451 Research
“51% of organisations recently surveyed are further increasing their mobile budgets this year. The enabling technologies are falling into place for companies to break out of the way they think about mobile from the silos in which it has traditionally resided, but the process needs to evolve to support this. Over the past year, it has become clearer that traditional waterfall development across the software lifecycle is ill-suited to mobile, and that agile methods are more applicable.”

Red Hat Announces Pathway to Enterprise-Ready Linux Containers

Redhat LogoSydney, AustraliaRed Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced the launch of the first certified, end-to-end ecosystem program for Linux containers based on Docker, a key component of the company’s vision for containerised applications unveiled in March 2014. Leveraging Red Hat’s vast network of thousands of partners and independent software vendors (ISVs), this ecosystem program is designed to enable the design, development and delivery of certified, trusted and secure application containers to end users through a set of industry standards, including the Docker container format and the Docker Engine.

Representing the next wave of enterprise application architecture, Linux containers facilitate the creation of an efficient, composable fabric of lightweight “microservices” that can be woven into more complex applications, yet are still flexible enough to adapt to changing IT needs. Much like traditional applications, containerised applications still interact with the operating system and require enterprise-class support, security and the knowledge that a Linux container actually contains only the intended application code, not harmful or malicious code.
