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?
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
- Cloud Pak for Data
- Google Could

“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.
With cloud based services becoming one of the top two markets for freelance gig workers, combined with the market’s massive size and strong future growth– especially those involved with major migration projects– the future for this market is above the clouds.
