The accreditation, which reflects the long standing relationship between Raqmiyat and Red Hat, will not only allow the leading systems integrator to consolidate its presence in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region but will also allow Raqmiyat to directly address the region’s increased demand for complex, high-end open source solutions.
Raqmiyat’s status as a Red Hat Advanced Business Partner is the result of the company’s continuous efforts to provide a full range of high quality solutions and services to customers across many verticals in the GCC region. The company’s sales and customer satisfaction performance have allowed Raqmiyat to join the ranks of Red Hat’s list of Advanced Business Partners.
The Red Hat Advanced Business Partner Program is composed of business partners that have demonstrated extensive knowledge and expertise with Red Hat’s product portfolio and have also met the company’s rigorous set of technical, sales and training requirements. Partners in this category are expected to provide the highest level of contribution to both its business and partner ecosystem.
“Attaining Red Hat’s Advanced Business Partner status for the GCC region is a major step forward for Raqmiyat’s continuing efforts to create a stronger presence in the region,” said Sandeep Saxena, Vice President – Technology Solutions, Raqmiyat. “Our strategic partnership with Red Hat over the past ten years compliments our strong commitment towards investing and prioritizing the development of solutions based on open source platforms for our wide range of customers across different industries and business segments.”
Raqmiyat offers extensive skills training programs and experience in key operational areas like infrastructure, applications, system integration and software migration. Prior to its accreditation as a Red Hat Advanced Business Partner, Raqmiyat was part of the Red Hat Training Program, distributor of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and a provider and integrator for Red Hat solutions. As part of its focus on providing better service to its customers, the company maintains a large pool of Linux-certified Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCE) and Red Hat Certified Technicians (RHCT) in the region.
“Ramqiyat has managed to maintain a strong interactive relationship with its customers and has helped build and develop open source competencies in the GCC region. Our Advanced Business Partnership with Red Hat provides our customers with advantages and benefits that will allow them to be on top of their game and will also allow us to promote the benefits of utilizing open source solutions to help increase productivity and efficiencies,” concluded Saxena.
