Red Hat expands open source training in the region
Open source technology vendor appoints Ingram Micro Training as Red Hat Training Reseller for the UAE
Investment in open source technologies is growing more than twice as fast as technology spending as a whole, according to a report released last by IDC and sponsored by Red Hat.
Expertise to handle the growing open source environment need to grow as fast.
With this in mind, Red Hat, a renowned name in enterprise open source technologies, is keen to expand training initiatives in open source in the region.
In the latest development, Red Hat has appointed Ingram Micro Training MEA, which provides instructor-led technical training globally, as a Red Hat Training Reseller for the UAE.
With this partnership, Ingram Micro is now authorised to resell Red Hat Training services, including open enrolment courses, onsite courses and Red Hat’s complete online delivery portfolio. These courses include, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, DevOps, and cloud.
Customers can take certification exams spanning the entire Red Hat product portfolio, including the Red Hat Certified System Administrator and Red Hat Certified Engineer exams for both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenStack Platform.
“With the support of Ingram Micro as a new Red Hat Training Reseller in the UAE, we can help organisations in the UAE meet the interest in the skills to use Red Hat solutions, enabling a return on investment for the enterprise, as well as enabling increased job productivity for the individual,” said Jens Ziemann, training director, Red Hat EMEA.
