It was a big awards night for Red Hat, recently, as three of our products won best in category business technology awards. The 2019 SIIA CODiE Awards have been distributed for over 30 years, now. They are the only peer-recognized program in the business and ed tech industries. In the words of the awards body, “Each CODiE Award win serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision and overall industry impact.”

To start with, Red Hat 3scale API Management won the 2019 award for Best API Management or API Security Solution. This is actually the third time in a row that our API management platform has won the API management category in the CODiE awards.

Next, Red Hat OpenStack Platform was awarded the 2019 Best Software Defined Infrastructure prize. This was the second year in a row our infrastructure platform has won this award.

And, last but certainly not the least, Red Hat OpenShift won the 2019 award for Best Platform as a Service. This was also a repeat of the CODiE won in this category in 2017.

Ashesh Badani, senior vice president, Cloud Platforms, Red Hat, said that “These awards validate the years of work we have put into making our cloud-native platforms more easily consumable, reliable and transformative for enterprises around the world. Winning one award would be terrific, but this triumvirate of recognition shows just how powerful our combined solutions can be, end-to-end, for workloads ranging from traditional applications to greenfield cloud-native services.”

This is not the first time Red Hat has won an SIIA CODiE Award. Last year, Red Hat Ansible Tower won the prize for the Best Overall Business Technology Product. Red Hat President and CEO, Jim Whitehurst, won the Best CEO Award in 2016.
