Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, announced that Fujitsu Limited has adopted Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for system development at its Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC), an internal organization to promote collection and company-wide use of its global data, which will help Fujitsu achieve greater development efficiency with quicker application development and delivery.
As part of its digital transformation initiative, Fujitsu established the BICC in October 2014 to help the companys global management team speed internal decision-making by collecting, streamlining, and analyzing globally scattered data.
The adoption of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for Fujitsus Global Management Dashboard at BICC was realized by a cooperative relationship between both companies.
In line with this, the company is encouraging regional enterprises to set up 'Business Intelligence Competency Centres' (BICC), a permanent organisational structure consisting of representatives from the business and IT departments, dedicated to advancing and promoting the effective use of BI to support a company's business strategy.
BICC provides a central location for driving and supporting organisations' overall business intelligence strategy by facilitating coordination and complementing existing efforts, while reducing redundancy and increasing effectiveness.
"By embracing the BICC concept and adopting an end-to-end BI platform, companies can implement a complete program for continuous performance improvement across the business, which is a must to stay afloat amidst the present economic crisis," said Carel Badenhorst, Head of Technology Practice, SAS - Middle East.
