IBM Massive Acquisition of Redhat Ignities High End Freelance Gig Market  

IBM closed the Redhat $34 billion dollar buyout about one month ago. Now comes the hard work for the everyday companies that utilize Redhat’s software.  Redhat is not only the fastest growing server software, but the largest open source company in the world (they build and support open source products from open source projects). Redhat has millions of computers running on their source code. The big question is can they migrate IBM hardware and software without giving up their open sources leadership? Plus, can Redhat adapt to IBM’s culture and bureaucracies without giving up key personnel?

Red Hat, Inc. is an American multinational software company providing open-source software products to the enterprise community. Founded in 1993,

IBM already has over 100 products for the Openshift and has everything bundled into what it calls cloud paks, which is basically a prepackaged enterprise ready cloud.

This is a massive transition not just for Redhat but for the whole open source community. This will cause tremendous change and opportunities, and effect the entire cloud competition and gig providers. We’re creating a platform that can help both parties to benefit with this transition including:

  • API Connect
  • Application Integration
  • Automation and multi cloud Management
  • AWD
  • Azure
  • Cloud Pak for Data
  • Congnos
  • DB2
  • Google Could
  • IBM Cloud
  • WebSphere
  • Watson
International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) is an American multinational information technology company headquartered in Armonk, New York, with operations in over 170 countries. The company began in 1911, founded in Endicott, New York, as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (CTR) and was renamed “International Business Machines” in 1924.

“Red Hat is unlocking innovation with Linux-based technologies, including containers and Kubernetes, which have become the fundamental building blocks of hybrid cloud environments,This open hybrid cloud foundation is what enables the vision of any app, anywhere, anytime. Combined with IBM’s strong industry expertise and supported by a vast ecosystem of passionate developers and partners, customers can create modern apps with the technologies of their choice and the flexibility to deploy in the best environment for the app — whether that is on-premises or across multiple public clouds.” –Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst

Some on Wall Street think this Redhat purchase will unlock IBM path back into growth, but this will depend on how fast and accurately they can combine this open source software company with the IBM culture– a large proprietary hardware and software company know for it conservative culture.
