Committed to open source

Quite simply, open source is in our collective DNA. IBM and Red Hat are among the largest contributors of code to open source projects. We are the partners of choice when it comes to providing offerings using open source technologies. And we are the core developers and maintainers of some of the most popular projects in the world.

Together, we’re bringing the breadth of IBM’s resources and scale to empower Red Hat developers, strengthen our communities and co-create the next chapter of open innovation.

Growing our ecosystems of partners

Flexibility and choice are inherent to open source and hybrid IT, and that extends to our partner relationships. Importantly, IBM and Red Hat will operate separate partner programs and cultivate distinct partner ecosystems.

Whether you’re consulting, building and certifying technologies, or offering services and solutions, there is an exciting opportunity ahead to scale and accelerate our partner efforts while maintaining what we worked together to build.
