Partners are an important multiplier for Red Hat. They play a key role in enabling customer success. One small way we congratulate and celebrate them for the innovation and customer success that they continually deliver is through the Red Hat North America Partner Awards. Last night we recognized this year’s winners at the Red Hat 2018 North America Partner Conference in Maryland.
The awards honor commercial and public sector partners for developing innovative solutions with Red Hat technologies to meet customer needs and business challenges. The honorees were recognized for impressive solutions in several categories that span Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud portfolio and their dedication to delivering customer success. This recognition is based upon the partner’s efforts during Red Hat’s last fiscal year, stretching from April 2017 - March 2018.
This year’s recipients, and our entire partner ecosystem, help companies embrace innovation and transform and modernize their approaches to IT with open source solutions. From emerging technology and middleware to hybrid cloud solutions and beyond, our partners have proven invaluable in providing Red Hat’s open source solutions to organizations throughout North America. They’ve been able to successfully adapt their processes to address the ever-changing needs of IT. At its core, the Red Hat North America Partner Awards are our small way of saying ‘thank you.’
