Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom and E.SUN Bank have been recognized for innovation by Red Hat.

Chunghwa Telecom has been recognized at the Red Hat Forum Asia Pacific 2020 for its innovative use of Red Hat solutions.

Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan had found it challenging to centrally manage its multiple data centers and ensure operational efficiency. This spurred the telco to move its mobile business group’s legacy business support systems (BSS) to private cloud, and migrate some existing applications to a new microservices architecture by using Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Fuse, Red Hat AMQ, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

The new microservices architecture allowed Chunghwa Telecom’s mobile business group to shorten its software development life cycle from three months to 14 days. It has also reduced its services deployment time from one day to 10 minutes.

Dr. Cheng Jeu-Yih, CIO, Chunghwa Telecom, said: “Modernizing our BSS with Red Hat’s flexible open source solutions has given us the confidence to be able to adapt to changing customer expectations quickly and effectively. With container-based microservices and a cloud-native architecture, we can deliver IT services faster and accelerate speed to market to delight customers.”

E.SUN Bank has been also recognized at the Red Hat Forum Asia Pacific 2020 for its innovative use of Red Hat solutions.

The bank delivers financial services to customers through its 139 branches in Taiwan.  

It is one of the first financial organizations in the country to develop its own core banking system and base it on a microservices architecture. It also collaborated with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to utilize microservices and adopt DevOps processes. 

E.SUN Bank adopted an open platform and microservices architecture to use standardized container technology and microservice development capabilities. It also worked with Red Hat to combine its DevOps know-how to deliver better user experiences. Additionally, the new core system was designed to allow flexibility for future business development, using its automatic scaling capabilities to handle spikes in traffic from large numbers of transactions, thereby ensuring the reliability of the bank’s systems.

Wan-Li Hsieh, CIO, E.SUN Bank, said: ” Through the collaboration with Red Hat to optimize application development processes, including system enhancements and process streamlining, we are able to focus better on developing innovative financial services. The ability to provide fintech services with a warm human touch, will allow E.SUN Bank to continue increasing customer satisfaction and its competitiveness as a technology brand.”
