Red Hat Enables and Empowers its Global Business Partners

Red Hat Today Announced the Global Launch of the Red Hat Partner Center for its Business Partners

On Tuesday Red Hat, Inc. announced the global launch of the Red Hat Partner Center, an online community and resource center for Red Hat Business Partners. The Center features a single portal for partners to access sales enablement tools including targeted marketing materials on cloud services, virtualization, platform and middleware solutions. The portal also includes an integrated case submission feature, deal registration, subscription management, training resources, specialization requests and upgrades, as well as an interactive online forum where partners can actively offer continuous feedback.

Red Hat's intention with the Partner Center is to enable partners to efficiently learn about Red Hat solutions to ultimately scale their businesses and ensure the success of end customers. With a specific focus on new offerings from Red Hat on virtualization and cloud, the company is working to provide partners with the support they need to give customers an easy on-ramp to the cloud.

“We are enabling our business partners and resellers to deliver Red Hat subscriptions in a flexible consumption based model. We recognize that every business has different requirements and our cloud strategy lends itself to flexibility in the way end users choose to deploy the operating platform, virtualization capabilities and middleware solutions,” said Mark Enzweiler, vice president, global channel sales, Red Hat. “Now, through the Red Hat Partner Center we are making it easier for our partners to bring these cutting-edge technologies to their customers.”

“Red Hat has been a trusted vendor for us and their new partner portal is simple to navigate and will allow us to expand our knowledge of Red Hat solutions including cloud, virtualization and middleware platforms. Our customers expect us to have the knowledgebase to help them take advantage of open source innovation and the Red Hat Partner Center will enable us to do that efficiently and effectively,” said Vikram Kumar, managing director, Unilogik Systems.

“Having a single on-demand resource like the Red Hat Partner Center will positively impact our business and our sales force, especially as more and more businesses seek to leverage the benefits of open source architecture,” said Erik Wallin, co-founder and COO, Shadow-Soft. “We've piloted the system and found it to be an invaluable tool, particularly the fact that sales marketing tools and deal registration is all in one platform.”

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
