Interesting analysis and summary on the strategy of IBM. My quote based on a discussion I had last week during Think at IBM on Open Source in German and European Government with Saskia Esken, Michael Seemann, Peter Ganten and Stephan Dörner (in German language). It became obvious to me, that it is not known enough, that IBM is contributing to Open Source and projects like Libre Office since years and is therefore in my opinion not at the same „level“ like other companies much more focusing on proprietary software. With the acquisition of Red Hat this becomes even more important for IBM.

It’s important to note that IBM already is committed to open-source projects and the company allows combining its cloud services with open-source tools. However, it hasn’t managed to build sales and revenue momentum that Red Hat has enjoyed with open-source products. The Red Hat acquisition gives the company an even richer portfolio of open-source tools and services to help its clients achieve digital transformation.Among the popular Red Hat products, OpenShift will provide the greatest advantage to IBM because the tool allows developers to create, test and run applications in a multi-cloud environment. In addition, OpenShift is used by more than 1,000 enterprise customers around the globe and cloud providers like Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) utilize OpenShift in combination with their cloud platforms to enable hybrid cloud computing.
