10 Most Promising Red Hat Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

Founded in 1993, Red Hat needs no introduction. Contributing to more than 450 open source projects including software stack, operating system, and developer toolchain, middleware, and cloud, Red Hat is a leader when it comes to Linux and contributing to an open-source model. From optimizing or modernizing the existing resources to quickly integrating new apps and services with business data to having the power of cloud computing, Red Hat has a plethora of products and platforms that organizations can leverage to be at the forefront of the highly competitive market, where technology is evolving at a rapid pace.

However, with the demands of implementing effective Red Hat solutions and Cloud strategies on the rise, what majority of the company lack is the right set of skills needed to implement the right set of methodologies to drive business value. The need then arises to have a reliable partner, who can help businesses seamlessly integrate various Red Hat services. Although, there is Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program in place, which has more than 600 cloud, managed service providers, and system integrators that help organizations to run Red Hat products, host virtual and physical machines, and set up public and private cloud environments. Nevertheless, to choose the best partner that suits the business requirements ideally is often a challenge.
