Dubai, UAE, February 22, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it has signed Spectrami DMCC, a leading value added distributor for security, storage, and mobility products, as a specialist distributor in the Middle East for the Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio and Red Hat Mobile Application Platform.

Under the terms of the agreement, Spectrami anticipates training a strong sales and pre-sales team focused on Red Hat JBoss Middleware products. Spectrami’s ‘Vendor Extension Model’ – customer facing sales teams who actively sell to end-users – can provide Red Hat with greater access to customers in the Middle East. The distributor also plans to include Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, which enables enterprises to develop and deploy mobile applications in an agile and flexible manner, as part of the portfolio of Red Hat products it offers.

The two companies plan to work together to identify channel partners with specialized technical proficiencies in middleware. Red Hat resources will be available to assist Spectrami in areas such as technical and sales training, solution design and implementation, as well as Proof of Concept (PoC) deployment.

Red Hat JBoss Middleware enables organizations to evolve their middleware infrastructure by providing the tools needed to build connected systems to help bring people, processes, and information together. These connected, flexible applications help create new and efficient ways for users to work towards organizational success, which can lead to increased revenues, decreased costs, higher customer retention, and improved partnerships with suppliers and vendors.
