For the second consecutive year, we’re happy to share that Gartner, Inc. has given Red Hat a "Positive" overall rating in Gartner’s 2016 Vendor Rating report. Gartner creates Vendor Ratings for approximately 30 leading IT vendors, and Red Hat believes its "Positive" rating reflects on the standing of its technologies and solutions in today’s IT market.
Gartner’s Vendor Ratings are highly 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 overall financial viability.
According to Gartner:
"Assisted by industry acceptance of open source as a viable development methodology for most Mode 1 workloads and the default for emerging Mode 2 deployments, Red Hat is firmly positioned as the most successful open-source software vendor in terms of subscription model success and portfolio breadth."
