Red Hat's Harish Pillay Honored with SPRING Singapore's Distinguished Partner Award

Congratulations to Harish Pillay, the global head of Community Architecture and Leadership at Red Hat in APAC, for being named a SPRING Singapore’s Distinguished Partner Award (SSDPA) recipient. Recognized at their annual SPRING ceremony July 10, SPRING Singapore is the city state’s governmental agency dedicated to the promotion of Singapore’s economic growth and productivity.



The SSDPA is presented to individuals who have contributed significantly to the national Standards and Conformance (S&C) program and recognizes the recipient's exemplary leadership and effort in raising Singapore's S&C profile regionally or internationally. Jointly organized by SPRING Singapore and the Singapore Standards Council, the annual Standards Partner Awards provides a platform for SPRING Singapore to thank partners and partner organizations that have dedicated their time and expertise to the Singapore Standardization Program.



Harish was recognized as a strong advocate for standards with his significant contributions to raise the profile of the Information Technology Standards Committee (ITSC) under the Singapore Standards Council. He was also recognized for his passion in promoting the value of standardization and playing an instrumental role in the conceptualization and execution of the annual code “XtremeApps” competition. In addition, he was commended for his significant efforts to create greater awareness of information and communication technology standards to the IT industry as chief editor of ITSC's Synthesis Journal.
