Red Hat Summit 2018: A Computing Platforms PerspectiveThis IDC Market Perspective analyzes some of the key announcements and developments that occurred during the 2018 Red Hat Summit from a computing platforms perspective. Red Hat used its annual event, which was held in San Francisco from May 8 to 10, 2018, to showcase the breadth of its "open hybrid cloud" portfolio. Company executives reinforced key strategies and themes including the strong traction of its "emerging" products, the continued leadership of RHEL, and its growing partner and developer ecosystem."Over the past few years, Red Hat has done a lot to diversify its product portfolio and move beyond being just a Linux ISV," said Stephen Belanger, senior research analyst, Computing Platforms at IDC. "This strategy is astute given the trend toward heterogeneous, multicloud environments, particularly as more customers undertake DX initiatives."
