Last week, we announced the IBM acquisition of Red Hat. It is a monumental deal, one that will enable us to work together to help customers deliver any app, anywhere, to realize the true value of the hybrid cloud.

In the world of Red Hat Global Services, our dedication to customer success remains unchanged. We will continue to work with IBM as a partner, similar to how we work with other global systems integrators. And we will continue to be an essential partner to our customers, providing consulting, training and technical enablement resources that optimize open source solutions based on Red Hat technology.

Red Hat Consulting will continue to help our customers maximize investment in Red Hat technology, accelerate its value, and foster transformation, with a focus on:

  • Adoption journeys and first-of-a-kind deployments

  • Digital transformation engagements through Open Innovation Labs

  • Telecommunications and financial services industry vertical practices

  • Competitive migrations to Red Hat technologies

  • Discovery Sessions to understand our customers’ opportunities and to architect Red Hat offerings to maximize their success

Red Hat Training and Certification will continue to offer its innovative curriculum and multiple modalities to help our customers build and develop the skills to succeed with Red Hat technology, with these programs:

  • Red Hat Learning Subscription

  • Red Hat Certification 

  • DevOps Culture and Practice and the Container Adoption Bootcamp

  • Red Hat Academy and Red Hat Learning Community

  • Red Hat onsite, virtual, and open enrollment options

Global Partner and Technical Enablement will continue to focus on the technical enablement of our partners, through Red Hat Online Partner Enablement Network (OPEN).

Red Hat Global Services has an important role to play as we move into our next phase. We enter that phase with a solid mission, a strong offerings portfolio, and strong performance globally. Our programs, offerings, and, most importantly, people, position us well to work with IBM, and our strategic partners, to serve our customers together in the months and years to come.
