Open source solutions provider Red Hat, Inc. has been names a leader in infrastructure automation platforms by Forrester Research in the recent Forrester Wave: Infrastructure Automation Platforms, Q3 2019 report.
The report highlights Red Hat’s Ansible Automation, saying it excels at orchestration and integration with other types of automation. They also call out the fact that customers said they were replacing other tools with Ansible, and praised the solution’s ability to bridge operations and development.
According to Red Hat:
Red Hat Ansible Automation is an automation platform that provides a trusted foundation for building and operating automation services at scale. As enterprises implement automation they often want to extend that automation across their organizations, which often requires a piecemeal approach — limiting its effectiveness and creating silos. Red Hat Ansible Automation provides a complete platform for automating, enabling organizations to more easily scale automation across IT operations and development, including infrastructure, networks, cloud, security and beyond.
“We are proud to have Red Hat Ansible Automation recognized as a Leader by Forrester,” says Joe Fitzgerald, the Vice President of Management for Red Hat. “Red Hat Ansible’s enterprise automation capabilities have expanded greatly over the past few years. While the large and active Ansible community have been extending automation to networks, security, storage and many other domains, Red Hat has been working hard on meeting the enterprise requirements for leveraging Ansible Automation, including certification, support, governance, composability, and scalability. In addition to strong adoption by IT organizations, we also see Ansible Automation preferred by developers as well as used in DevOps toolchains. Our integration of Ansible across much of the Red Hat portfolio helps increase levels of automation and reduce cost and complexity for our customers.”
