Community Powered Innovation.
The opportunity ahead
In the coming weeks and months, these are some of the ways we plan to work together
Bring Red Hat solutions everywhere IBM is
Today, Red Hat operates in more than 40 countries; IBM operates in more than 175 countries. We’ll explore how to expand availability of Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud portfolio in more places.
Optimize IBM’s technologies for the Red Hat portfolio
Through our existing partnership, many IBM technologies are already certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift. IBM will work to optimize its technologies for the Red Hat portfolio and to enable customers to use them everywhere Red Hat runs, including multiple public clouds.
Expanded corporate social responsibility + STEM initiatives
Our aim is not only to be the best hybrid cloud company, but also to be the best company for the world. Red Hat already champions STEM initiatives like CO.LAB and skills-building programs like
Red Hat Academy. IBM has been a powerful force in STEM and gives back to communities around the world through initiatives like P-TECH, Corporate Services Corps, and Call for Code. We’ll work to see how we can expand these efforts to do more together.
