In an environment of economic fluctuations and technological upheavals, Red Hat continues with the theme of “Explore what’s next” at this year’s Red Hat APAC Innovation Awards. This year’s accolades celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of organizations in adapting to today’s uncertain landscape, proudly recognizing the digital transformation achievements of 31 organizations from 13 countries in the region. By harnessing the power of open source creatively, these remarkable organizations propel themselves forward while prioritizing unforgettable customer experiences. Their unwavering resilience, strategic thinking, and ingenious utilization of Red Hat solutions have allowed them to conquer new business challenges and stay one step ahead of evolving customer demands.

Amid growing uncertainty, innovation still stands tall as a priority for businesses. According to the Red Hat 2023 Global Tech Outlook, businesses continue to rank innovation as a powerful differentiator, allowing organizations to rise above their competitors and forge their unique path to success. The awards’ five categories focus on key technologies that can help businesses stand out amid today’s uncertain landscape: Digital Transformation, Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure, Cloud-native Development, Automation, and Resilience. 

The winners were selected based on the positive impact their Red Hat deployments had on their business goals. They showcase the possibilities of open source, pushing the boundaries of business processes, productivity, innovation, and resilience.   

Category: Digital Transformation and Cloud-Native Development
Winner: Bank Rakyat Indonesia 

As the oldest and largest state-owned bank in the country, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) is currently one of the largest Indonesian companies in terms of market capitalization. Traditionally focused on providing banking services for micro, small, and medium enterprises, BRI wanted to generate new revenue streams via retail banking and had to adapt to the shifting demands of consumers that were increasingly digital-minded. To attract a younger demographic, BRI launched its BRI mobile banking app (BRImo) in 2019. However, this version of BRImo was unable to be scaled up to keep pace with customer demands.

To provide fast, efficient, safe and easy-to-access financial services to capture this group of potential customers, BRI turned to Red Hat to modernize its enterprise applications and optimize the BRImo app. The use of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform has allowed BRI to improve the scalability, agility, and responsiveness of BRImo, leading to higher customer satisfaction and retention. These upgrades have led to a 68% YoY user growth for BRImo in 2022. 

Category: Cloud-Native Development and Automation
Winner: Bank OCBC NISP

Bank OCBC NISP has adopted Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. Red Hat OpenShift and Ansible Automation are helping increase developer productivity and to help launch products and services on the ONe Mobile application more quickly and scalably. In addition, using Red Hat OpenShift, together with Ansible Automation means Bank OCBC NISP’s IT teams can automate repetitive tasks, freeing up time to focus on more high-value activities, which can increase efficiency and productivity. This collaboration helps improve the customer experience for ONe Mobile customers, namely the mobile banking application for Bank OCBC NISP individual customers.

The ONe Mobile application, which was launched in 2018, is a mobile banking application that helps Bank OCBC NISP’s individual customers to grow and manage their finances. As of June 2023, the number of ONe Mobile transactions has increased by 63% and the transaction value has increased by 67% YoY. This shows good acceptance from customers of ONe Mobile’s features that can support their financial needs, both for their wealth management and for daily transactions (daily banking).
