Forrester Research identified the 11 most significant infrastructure automation providers and researched, analyzed, and scored them. Red Hat and the other top providers were evaluated for The Forrester Wave™ against 30 criteria grouped into three categories: current offering, strategy, and market presence. In the evaluation, Red Hat received the highest possible scores in 13 criteria, including community support, product vision, execution roadmap, planned enhancements, innovation roadmap, supporting products and services, partner ecosystem, revenue, and average deal size.

According to Forrester’s evaluation, “Red Hat sets the pace of the market by addressing operational challenges, skill gaps, and budgetary pressures. Its strength lies in its community, which has led to solid partnerships and supporting services. Red Hat capitalizes on this ecosystem by adopting and embracing the work of contributors. Key upcoming features include trusted automation supply chain, Event-Driven Ansible, and AI-led automation through Project Wisdom.”
