Red Hat Appoints First West African Premier Partner, Converge Global Concept Technologies to bring enterprise open source solutions to West Africa



Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the appointment of Converge Global Concept Technologies as its first Premier Partner in West Africa. 
Converge Global Concept Technologies is an IT services organization that specializes in the deployment of mission-critical technology systems, solutions and services. As a Premier Partner, the organization will benefit from Red Hat's deep open source expertise and technical skills. With a particular emphasis on Red Hat’s cloud and middleware portfolio, Converge Global Concept Technologies aims to give Nigerian and other West African businesses a multi-platform, scalable and more secure route to the cloud.  

 Open Source is now so much more than Linux, and has been tried, tested and is trusted by many of the world’s biggest companies, for example, 100% of commercial banks in the Fortune 500 rely on Red Hat. Red Hat and Converge Global Concept Technologies look forward to helping local businesses in West Africa explore the potential and reap the benefits of open source. The new collaboration will make available a wide range of innovative private and hybrid cloud solutions such as Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat CloudForms and Red Hat OpenShift, backed up by Red Hat’s enterprise-grade security, support and training.          
In November Red Hat hosted a well-attended seminar for CIOs from leading Nigerian organisations focused on how open source is enabling organizations to address challenges such as cost, complexity, lock-in from proprietary vendors, and migration to the cloud.

Supporting Quotes
Akan Jacobs, general manager Converge Global Concept Technologies
“While many organisations in the region are familiar with Red Hat in the Linux context, they may not be as familiar with the business advantages that its product leadership in the middleware and cloud space confers. We hope to help expand their exposure to the benefits of solutions such as Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, and moving from community to enterprise open source.”

Dion Harvey, country manager, SA, Red Hat
“We believe there is tremendous opportunity for West African enterprises to benefit from open source the Red Hat way. We can support organisations on their cloud and digital journey, helping them to realise the many business benefits of open source including increased speed and agility, competitiveness and participation in the new digital economy.”

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
