It is important to note that IBM, while being Red Hat’s parent company, has stipulated that Red Hat will operate separately and independently. This means that beyond IBM rolling Red Hat’s financials up into their overall numbers, Red Hat continues to view the IBM as a premier partner, just like before. So with that backdrop, IBM will not be present at this council so that each of you will have a communication forum free from any perceived conflict of interest.

The entire Red Hat Partners and Alliances team looks forward to gaining a better perspective from you as to how to accelerate the growth of our mutual businesses.
