Red Hat Aligns with Samsung to Bring Forward the ‘Next Generation’ of Enterprise Mobility

Red Hat, Inc., a renowned provider of open source solutions, and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced a strategic alliance earlier this week to deliver the next generation of mobile solutions for the enterprise.

The alliance will draw upon the combined strengths of each company, namely the breadth of Samsung's mobile device portfolio, alongside the depth of Red Hat's open source middleware, mobile and cloud technologies. This combination will deliver mobile solutions that enable rapid development and integration of enterprise applications for organisations moving toward a mobile-first strategy.

As a major presence in the market for enterprise mobile and open source solutions, Red Hat will bring flexibility, credibility, and leading-edge support for application development and deployments on premise and across private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.

Leveraging its reputation in consumer products, Samsung Business Services, part of Samsung Electronics America, Inc., will provide a diverse portfolio of technologies targeted for business from smartphones to wearables, tablets, digital displays, hospitality TVs and printers.

The vision for this next generation of mobile business solutions is expected to be defined by greater levels of openness, agility, and access to critical business information, while still maintaining the necessary levels of security measures. The joint mobility solutions from Red Hat and Samsung Business Services will look to deliver on those needs, and help businesses advance and accelerate their mobile initiatives.

Samsung Business Services and Red Hat plan to offer advanced solutions in business applications, a developer ecosystem, support services and business collaboration for their enterprise customers, with the initial phase of the alliance focusing on the US.

Effective and successful mobility strategies take into account both platforms and devices, and how they come together to help enable powerful end-to-end mobile solutions. We believe deeply in the power of collaboration, and we're excited to join with Samsung in not only delivering a new generation of mobile solutions for the enterprise, but in empowering customers to achieve new levels of innovation in mobile, said Craig Muzilla, senior vice president, Application Platforms Business, Red Hat.
