‚Containers‘, ‚Microservices‘, and ‚Application Streams‘ are some of the most important infrastructure trends for the future, according to a recent study by Gartner Research.  SAG Automotive Group pursues exactly this path with the UMB cloud and RedHat OpenShift for application development. These days, software design and deployment happen much quicker and applications are perfectly scalable. This accelerates the business processes and therefore the digital transformation of SAG.

SAG’s existing development environment based on virtual machines no longer fulfilled business requirements. Additional development speed and agility were required for a continuous deployment process as well as the launch of the new core application, Microsoft Dynamics 365. This ensures a speedier and more efficient implementation of SAG business ideas and the ability to keep up with market requirements.

Today, SAG counts on RedHat OpenShift in the UMB Cloud. UMB is  a RedHat Advanced Business Partner and is RedHat CCSP certified. Deploying so called containers, the UMB platform as a service environment offers high standardization for applications development. The technology also facilitates simple further development of applications and their speedy transition into productive software. The SAG objective, to create a fast and dynamic development environment and at the same time a highly scalable productive environment in the spirit of DevOps, was achieved in every respect. Peiman Safiari, CIO SAG Automotive Group AG, explains: “Thanks to the OpenShift Platform from the UMB cloud, our developers can implement SAG business requirements much more dynamically”. The new development environment offers a critical competitive edge through such speedy implementation of operational demands.
