Veracomp, the leading value added distributor in Central and Eastern Europe, has become a distributor for Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, in Poland. The change in the distribution channel in the Polish market is a result of the strategic collaboration of two companies over the last two years.
The growing interest in open source technologies necessitate cooperation with proven and reliable partners. Veracomp, which has been providing the market with advanced IT solutions for 25 years, aims to to increase reach of Red Hat solutions in Poland by offering comprehensive pre- and post-sales partner support.
“Commercial open source solution providers have the opportunity to be among the beneficiaries of the ongoing digital revolution,” says Adam Rudowski, CEO, Veracomp SA. „For Veracomp, it is a strategic growth area in the region. Red Hat is a market leader, providing a wide range of products – we already distribute the company’s full portfolio in 12 CEE countries and currently the sole distributor for 11 of them. Over the next two years, we are going to focus on expanding the sales channel in Poland, and together with our business partners we will promote the benefits of commercial open source technologies. We want to become the strongest development center of these technologies in the region,” he adds.
“Choosing Veracomp to become a Red Hat distributor in Poland demonstrates our commitment in Central and Eastern Europe. We want our partners to have access to the full product portfolio and professional pre- and post-sales support, all in one place,” says Krzysztof Rocki, Senior Regional Manager, Central and Eastern Europe, Red Hat. „Veracomp is also a Red Hat distributor in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and South Eastern Europe. We are pleased by the cooperation, and are delighted to announce the next step of our relationship today,” he adds.
Vercomp’s offering covers the complete portfolio of Red Hat products. It includes solutions that can offer potential to the Polish market, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Virtualization, Ansible Tower automation technologies, as well as cloud-based solutions, such as Red Hat CloudForms and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
The strategic collaboration between Red Hat and Veracomp is an opportunity for existing and new partners to build their competences and to extend their product portfolio with open source technologies.
