Jim WhitehurstJim Whitehurst, CEO of Red Hat, forecasts that the enterprise computing landscape could change due to the introduction of open-source cloud architectures, Forbes reported Sunday.

“If you look at where most new applications are getting built, and therefore where so much of the innovation around languages, frameworks and management paradigms are happening, it“™s around an open infrastructure,” he told told Forbes.

Kurt Marko writes that Whitehurst said the company aims to emerge as organizations’ preferred provider of software tools for managing cloud platforms.

Red Hat also seeks to increase adoption and improve security of its Linux and OpenStack operating systems through the firm’s cloud partner program, according to Marko.

The network is designed to give partners training resources and expertise to obtain certification for applications built around Red Hat technology.

“One of the most important parts about cloud, public, private or hybrid, is a sense that you can confidently run your applications,“ Whitehurst told the publication.

“Job one for Red Hat is making sure our operating system and layers above that work well on anyone“™s infrastructure underneath.”
