Those who have read The Open Organization by +Jim Whitehurst will understand that this story fits within its story.  Namely, technologies, channels, applications, service providers, and even customers are all part of a larger "open organization" that ultimately builds and sustains value.  An overly simplistic response might be "that's just the free market wearing a different hashtag".  The difference is that in the world of the open organization, transactions are parts of a longer term relationship, which is remembered by all who participate.

What this new agreement signals is that customers now have a choice to use Red Hat technologies even when the channel or service provider is Microsoft.  And those customers gain the benefits of all the relationship capital they have built with Microsoft over the years, plus all of the technology and community capital represented by Red Hat and the open source community.

A big deal for +Red Hat and Microsoft?  Yes.  But it is a much bigger deal in that it defines a new paradigm for the global enterprise IT market.  Choice wins!

Bournemouth Jelly is a weekly co-working event held at Flirt Cafe Bar in the Triangle in Bournemouth. Bring along your laptop and get on with some work, have some coffee, chat with other people doing the same thing.

One of us will be there from 10am until 2pm each Wednesday. We use the large round table near the library entrance, or additional tables depending on numbers.

No need to stay for the whole time, just turn up and say hi!
