The Business Value of Red Hat Certification

Red Hat Certification provides tangible business impact

IDC interviewed organizations across multiple industries with employees who have earned Red Hat® certifications to learn about the impact these people have on team and operational efficiencies.

IDC found that these companies with Red Hat certified IT staff achieve strong returns on their investment thanks to significant productivity gains and improved operational efficiencies—including greater productivity in the number of servers managed, faster problem resolution, and less downtime. While training itself is important, IDC’s analysis shows that a significant portion of value stems from employees achieving a high level of mastery.
