ZDNet - Red Hat's only business plan is to keep changing plans
Red Hat's strategic planning isn't like yours, but with 64 straight quarters of revenue growth and continuing on course to become the first billion-dollar-a-quarter open-source company, the Linux and cloud power is clearly on to something. Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat CEO, explained at Red Hat Summit that in today's world, you must live with ambiguity.
