Empowering through open source solutions

Open source solutions provider Red Hat expands it’s business in Bangladesh as the country is going through a massive digital transformation.

Senior officials of Red Hat India and South Asia shared focusing issues in the country at a press conference at Westin Dhaka recently. 

The American multinational software company aims to strengthen the partner ecosystem and help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation across industries such as banking and finance services, telecommunications and government.

Commercial Sales Director Neeraj Bhatia, Solution Architecture Director Ameeta Roy and Sales Head Palashendu Bhattacharya addressed the meet.

Red Hat officials briefed media on the sidelines of the Red Hat Forum, a day long technology event.

Neeraj Bhatia said the open source can accelerate innovation in Bangladesh’s digital economy.

“Recent industry reports indicate that cloud computing adoption in Bangladesh has gained momentum in the last few years. Red Hat hopes to empower local businesses to innovate with open hybrid cloud solutions,” added Neeraj.

Open Source has been a catalyst for digital disruption across the globe by allowing organizations to build an ecosystem that promotes faster innovation, according to Ameeta Roy.

“It gives them architectural control unlike proprietary software. It enables enterprises and government to avoid vendor lock-in while leveraging their existing IT infrastructure and applications, which is imperative for building hybrid cloud”, she explained.

Palashendu Bhattacharya said open source solutions are core to innovation in areas like cloud computing, containers, mobile, artificial intelligence, machine learning and beyond.
