In time for Red Hat’s sales kickoff event this week, the open-source tool vendor unveiled deeper partnerships with SAP, Google Cloud and Oracle.
Red Hat channel chief Stefanie Chiras, the Raleigh, N.C.-based vendor’s senior vice president of partner ecosystem success, told CRN that the deeper vendor partnerships reflect Red Hat’s goal of creating more capabilities and realizing the value of those capabilities for partners to deliver to customers.
“Our focus has always been, in open hybrid cloud, to be able to provide choice—to give folks a platform that allows them then to select where and how do they want to run and give them choice,” Chiras said. “They make the decision on the platform that opens up a world of choice around it. And that choice is dependent upon us having an ecosystem that is trusted that we’ve worked with and that matters to them.”
