Impact on the organization

Containers and OpenShift have quickly become the de facto solution for agile development and application deployment. Administrators and developers are seeking additional ways to improve application time-to-market and improve maintainability.
This course provides the gateway to organizational and digital transformation by providing an understanding of the potential of DevOps using a container-based architecture. Orchestrating a container-based architecture with Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift improves application reliability and scalability; decreases developer overhead; and facilitates continuous integration and continuous deployment.
This course is the starting point for our Red Hat OpenShift curriculum, establishing the foundation needed to advance to Red Hat OpenShift development or administration.
Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.
