"We are excited to be able to offer the great benefits of our OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to city governments through our work with Code for America,” said Ashesh Badani, global leader, Cloud and OpenShift, Red Hat, as Red Hat announced a collaboration with Code for America (CfA), a non-profit organization that partners with local governments to foster civic innovation and increase civic engagement through the use of technology.

“OpenShift offers an application platform in the cloud that manages the stack so that developers can focus on their application code. As PaaS becomes an increasingly important component in the adoption of cloud across industries and geographies, it will become more crucial for government agencies to be ahead of the curve," Badani continued.
