In today’s fast-moving business world, it’s important to innovate faster and increase quality to inspire customers and help employees work smarter.
Success is based on assessing new ways of working with the right tools, people, and processes.
Joining forces, the SAP Innovation Awards and Red Hat teams share a vision of recognizing companies that adapt to change and leverage open source one step at a time, with the ability to adjust directions along the way.
Together they honor and celebrate the achievements of forward-thinking organizations and individuals that have harnessed the power of the latest SAP and Red Hat products and technologies with the highest standards for testing, security, and stakeholder satisfaction.
Many intelligent enterprises are built on an open platform with Red Hat Enterprise Linux based on a portfolio of flexible solutions from automation, management, and integration, to app containerization and open hybrid cloud.
The Red Hat Open Innovation Labs has a history of embracing the best of open source tools, methods, and culture into an environment designed for speed and innovation. Customers’ engineers with open source experts work together to solve challenges, test ideas, deploy rapid prototypes, learn from the results, and modify the approach.
Transforming ideas into tangible business outcomes is in the DNA for both Red Hat and SAP.
