Our Development Model
How the best ideas become enterprise-ready
Creating better technology using open source
Innovation doesn’t happen by chance. It’s the outcome of a proven process. The Red Hat® development model begins in the open source community with thousands of contributors—and results in finished products that are tried, tested, and trusted.
Community To Enterprise
We build open source solutions for the enterprise
An open development model connects Red Hat engineers to open source communities. As members work together to identify and elevate the best ideas, we support them by contributing to the code and creating products from upstream projects.
We’re involved in many open source communities, building and refining the technologies that make up today’s IT environments. From the operating system to automation, middleware, and containers, we continuously create open solutions for the enterprise.
