Using the enterprise Kubernetes platform along with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, Omnitracs One is a cloud-native offering and provides an enhanced user experience with a clear path towards future innovations. With Red Hat’s guidance, Omnitracs said it was able to embrace a shift from on-premises development technologies to cloud-native services, improving overall operations and creating a more collaborative development process culture.
Red Hat’s collaboration with Omnitracs extended beyond technology development, with Red Hat providing training and guidance on product deployment through Red Hat Open Innovation Labs. The Red Hat team also trained the Omnitracs staff on the entire development process, teaching them how to use powerful cloud-based toolchains to create new applications for a cloud-native future.
Although the initial project is complete, Omnitracs and Red Hat are continuing their work together through various community initiatives, including a recent codefest to improve the Truckers Against Trafficking mobile application.
