Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Red Hat has been positioned by Gartner as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms.1 The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Red Hat’s DevOps solution is uniquely an application platform consisting of Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. It allows organizations to quickly realize the promise of DevOps by offering a comprehensive hybrid cloud platform integrated with developer productivity tools, security and compliance features, and automation capabilities for the iterative development and delivery pipeline. With Red Hat OpenShift, organizations get a fully integrated hybrid cloud application platform powered by Kubernetes.
