Red Hat Adds Resources for Partners

Red Hat Inc. highlighted its channel momentum during its North America Partner Conference this week.

The open source solution provider says channel bookings have increased from 53 percent of total bookings in fiscal year 2008 to 60 percent in fiscal year 2012. The company also suggested that its channel momentum is increasing, with a 65 percent booking percentage from the channel in Red Hat's third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Meanwhile, Red Hat rolled out a few enhancements to its partner program this week. After introducing a lead referral program and more channel staff last year, Red Hat is now bolstering the program with an overhauled training curriculum for partners and a browser-based demo lab.
