For the third consecutive report, we’re happy to share that Gartner, Inc. has given Red Hat a “Positive” overall rating in its 2017 Vendor Rating report. Gartner creates Vendor Ratings for approximately 30 IT vendors, and Red Hat believes its “Positive” rating reflects on the strength of its open hybrid cloud portfolio 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.
