Helping customers succeed

Your technical advocate

A partner who’s your single point of contact 

  • Customers work directly with their TAM to resolve complex and time-sensitive issues more quickly, with access to a wide range of subject matter experts.
  • TAMs connect customers to the Red Hat engineering organization, providing customers with the power to impact future product features and updates. Many new features in Red Hat products today were created due to customer needs.


Regulatory compliance guidance when you need it most
