Gartner 2018 Vendor Rating: Red Hat

Red Hat receives overall “positive” rating from Gartner

For the fourth consecutive report, we’re happy to share that Gartner, Inc. has given Red Hat an overall "Positive" overall rating in its 2018 Vendor Rating report. Gartner creates Vendor Ratings for approximately 30 IT vendors, and Red Hat believes its overall "Positive" rating reflects on the standing of its technologies and solutions in today’s IT market and its ability to meet customer’s needs as they modernize IT systems with flexible and agile open source solutions.

Gartner’s Vendor Ratings are structured reports that define Gartner's position on an individual vendor as a whole, not just on its position within a single market. Gartner’s evaluation was based on various criteria, such as Red Hat’s strategy, products and services, technology, marketing, and corporate viability.
