This IDC Market Perspective presents IDC's point of view on announcements made at the Red Hat Summit 2020.
The virtual delivery of Red Hat Summit 2020 took place in the week of April 27, 2020. The event focused on customers and included examples of how COVID-19 has dramatically shifted the business operations of enterprises but also highlighted the value of Red Hat's products and how they can help customers become more agile while keeping a lid on costs.
"Red Hat Summit 2020 was a different event — and not just because it was virtual in presentation — reflective of the uncertain times we are experiencing today," said Al Gillen, group VP, Software Development and Open Source. "Red Hat purposely — and rightly — made this year's conference not about new product releases but about helping customers negotiate the new world we are living in by leveraging the value that these customers already have through their investments in Red Hat technologies."
