Red Hat Inc.'s channel program has achieved a five-star rating in CRN's Partner Program Guide award for 2015.
The recognition marks the third consecutive year Red Hat receives the award for its program intended to help partners deliver open source services to their customers, Red Hat said Monday.
“We're thrilled that CRN has chosen to recognize Red Hat with another five-star rating,“ said Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president of global channel sales and alliances at Red Hat.
The annual award is meant to honor technology vendors that develop tools designed to provide training, support and enablement services to their channel.
CRN considers a vendor's investments in program offerings; partner profitability, training, education and support; marketing programs and resources; sales support and communication when choosing a winner for the award.
