Red Hat Squinting Hard To Find Visionary


Red Hat is dusting off its crimson Fedora today to announce that nominations are now open for its fifth annual Innovation awards, which will be presented at the Red Hat Summit and JBoss World, taking place May 3–6, 2011 in Boston. Customers, partners, and the developer community at large are invited to show how they have utilized Red Hat and JBoss technologies to "creatively address" application development challenges.

Submissions for the awards will be accepted until March 11, 2011. The company says that four categories will each recognize two winning submissions, one from Red Hat and one from JBoss — and the Outstanding Open Source Architecture category will recognise one winner who is deploying both Red Hat and JBoss solutions. From these category winners, one Red Hat Innovator of the Year and one JBoss Innovator of the Year will be selected by the community through online voting.

Categories for the 2011 Innovation Awards include:

  • Optimized Solutions: Recognition of striking performance, scalability and/or usability enhancements delivered with open source solutions.
  • Superior Alternatives: Recognition of the most successful migration from proprietary solutions to open source alternatives.
  • Extensive Ecosystem: Recognition of the use of Red Hat or JBoss' partner ecosystem to create innovative architectures based on open source solutions.
  • Carved Out Costs: Recognition of customers who have leveraged open source solutions to significantly cut costs and extract added value from existing systems.
  • Outstanding Open Source Architecture: Recognition of the use of Red Hat, JBoss and partner offerings to create innovative architectures based on open source solutions.
