At the recent Gartner IT ChannelVision: Government Edition event, Red Hat’s government team picked up two prestigious award nominations. One for best technology provider. And one for best federal channel strategy. The Best of IT ChannelVision: Government Edition Awards are voted on by attending system integrators and Red Hat was one of just four nominees in these categories.

Regular readers of our blog will notice that this is the third recognition this year for the government channel team. Red Hat’s director of Government Channel Sales, Mike Byrd, was recognized earlier this year by GovernmentVAR as one of the 25 Public Sector Channel Leaders and Washington Technology awarded Mike its prestigious Channel Leadership Award.

The Gartner IT ChannelVision: Government Edition is a premier event focused on building partnerships between world-class vendors and the government IT channel. The event, produced by Visions Events®, a Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT) company, offers an interactive forum for senior-level IT executives to discuss issues and solutions with channel leaders.
