Red Hat Support

Technical Account Management

Connect with a technical advisor who can help you plan and deploy for enterprise success

Get the technology edge you need with specialized support

Red Hat® Technical Account Managers (TAMs) partner with you to resolve potential problems before they occur, minimizing disruption and freeing you to focus on your key business challenges. As a seasoned professional, a TAM helps guide your technology strategy, mobilizing an extended team that is driven to get the most out of your Red Hat enterprise solutions.

We have one Technical Account Manager, one point of contact who manages all of the backend communications with Red Hat. If we have any issues, our TAM will help us.
