Enterprise IT is transforming by taking a fresh approach and leveraging modern tools to help developers become more efficient in delivering innovative solutions. Leveraging analytics from increasing volumes of data to automate common processes is increasingly becoming the new normal for intelligent applications. Application platforms supporting an architecture that gives developers a wide choice of components across hybrid cloud infrastructure are a preferred path in the enterprise cloud adoption journey. IDC interviewed nine organizations that are using Red Hat OpenShift as their primary application development platform. These organizations reported that OpenShift helps them deliver timely and compelling applications and features across their complex and heterogeneous IT environments and supports key IT initiatives such as containerization, microservices, and cloud migration strategies. As a result, the OpenShift platform is yielding significant value to these Red Hat customers, which IDC projects will be worth an average of $1.29 million per 100 application development team members per year over five years, by: » Enabling developers to deliver more timely, robust, and functional applications and features » Improving business results and operational efficiency by meeting customer and user demand » Requiring less staff time for ongoing management of applications » Reducing the proportion of application development costs associated with infrastructure and development platforms The Business Value of Red Hat OpenShift Sponsored by: Red Hat Authors: Larry Carvalho Matthew Marden October 2016 Business Value Highlights 531% average five-year ROI $1.29 million average annual benefits per 100 developers per year 66% faster application development life cycles 35% less IT staff time required per application developed $7.42 million higher revenue per organization 38% lower IT infrastructure and development platform costs per application

Document #US41845816 ©2016 IDC. | Page 2 IDC White Paper | The Business Value of Red Hat OpenShift Situation Overview Introduction Businesses are increasingly expecting technology to be a cornerstone of every new initiative. IDC surveys of line-of-business representatives show that more organizations expect the IT department to help identify which parts of the business could be digitally transformed through the use of technology. Traditional approaches to leveraging technology are too slow in delivering innovation at the pace at which business ecosystems are changing. Automation requires decision making based on analyzing streams of data in real time, leading to better results from digital marketing campaigns. Professional developers leveraging new tools are helping deliver solutions for enterprises to keep up with disruptive competitors.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
