Red Hat tech powers RBS Open Experience

Royal Bank of Scotland is utilising Red Hat technologies at its new Open Experience centre, launched in February at its HQ in Edinburgh, UK. The Open Experience team are working with financial technology companies to develop new ideas and grow them into customer pilots, as well as searching for emerging trends and technologies around the globe. The centre sits alongside the bank’s Entrepreneurial Spark business accelerator hub, which includes a ‘Hatchery’ for early stage startups and a ‘Nest’ for high growth businesses.

Using OpenShift, Red Hat’s container-based application platform, the Open Experience developers can more quickly develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. The Mobile Application Platform, meanwhile, provides technology designed to simplify the development, integration, deployment, and management of mobile solutions.

Richard Crook, Head of Innovation Engineering, Royal Bank of Scotland, says: “With Open Experience we spike, challenge and dream. We are makers, thinkers, and builders. We are pleased to be collaborating with Red Hat to provide an innovation platform for our innovation engineers. The use of the Mobile Application Platform and OpenShift Enterprise enables us to maximise the chances of our best ideas reaching the hands of our customers.”
