Electrical Training Alliance selects Red Hat’s Managed Cloud offerings

Red Hat OpenShift API Management transforms education and training management platforms for electrical professionals, resulting in an adaptable and streamlined experience.

Electrical training ALLIANCE (ETA) has overhauled its IT infrastructure for the cloud with Red Hat OpenShift API Management, resulting in an upgraded training experience for electricians.

ETA is the leading publisher of education materials for the electrical industry. Founded as a joint training program between the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), ETA provides NGO support training, job boards, certifications, and more to electrical professionals. As the organization grew, it realized it needed to modernize its IT architecture using an API-first microservices development approach. Directly supporting over 230 training programs, ETA needed to create an online application that could track trainees’ progress, while rapidly adjusting and scaling with traffic.

With an existing interest in Red Hat OpenShift as a hybrid cloud application development platform, ETA engaged Red Hat Consulting to select and implement Red Hat OpenShift API Management, which is part of Red Hat’s portfolio of fully hosted and managed cloud offerings, to modernize its architecture. Red Hat OpenShift API Management supports teams that want to take an API-first approach to building microservices-based applications, resulting in simplified modernization of existing systems, increased developer productivity, and faster application delivery. Red Hat hosts, manages, and provides dedicated support for both OpenShift Dedicated and OpenShift API Management, making it a great fit for ETA, who wanted a hands-off approach to this migration. The Red Hat team oversees daily functions such as configuration, maintenance, and upgrades, so ETA can focus on development rather than managing a Kubernetes infrastructure.

As training systems and services are integrated into Red Hat OpenShift API Management and APIs are exposed, ETA has been able to provide a smoother experience for training centers and trainees with easy curriculum tracking, accessibility to services, and accelerated performance. Additionally, the upgrade has enabled simpler operational processes for internal personnel and training centers, resulting in the improved accuracy and organization of the electrical professional trainees’ data. With the influx of data, ETA has been able to improve its reporting capabilities, providing better insights to customize and improve training and educational materials.
