CA Technologies has announced it has been named Innovation Partner of the Year by Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions. The award is part of the annual Red Hat North American Partner Awards, which were announced at the Red Hat North American Partner Conference in Orlando, FL.

“This award validates our ongoing commitment to providing our customers with the best open source solutions to truly meet their needs,” said Alyssa Fitzpatrick, senior vice president, Global Partner Organization, CA Technologies. “It’s also a validation of our successful relationship with our valued partner, Red Hat. We’re honored that they have chosen us as an Innovative Partner of the Year.”
