(NYSE:RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that its Global Support Services team has been named a top-three finalist in the HDI Team Excellence Awards in recognition of the support leadership Red Hat delivers to its global enterprise customers.

The HDI Team Excellence Awards program honors the IT service and support professionals who have most enhanced the image of the support services profession by setting and achieving the highest standards of excellence in customer support.

Red Hat’s subscription model provides customers with the latest open source technology, improved features, security updates and software and hardware certifications. It also includes access to unique knowledge and technical expertise from Red Hat’s Global Support Services and engineering teams. In June 2010, Red Hat announced enhancements to its customer experience and subscription value with the general availability of a new global customer portal. The customer portal provides a single point of entry for Red Hat customers to access product knowledge such as document and video content, downloads, case management, security updates, subscription management and proactive planning tools such as uses cases and solutions.

“The top three finalists of HDI’s Team Excellence, in either Internal or External, demonstrate to our support industry peers that the teams have achieved high levels of excellence in the three categories of people, process and technology, making Red Hat a leading-edge company in the support industry,” said Sophie Klossner, executive director of Membership at HDI. “Because of the history of HDI’s Team Excellence award winners and the quality of teams they represent, Red Hat is joining an elite group of companies that share in the excellence they have developed through their support teams, generating through their entire organization.”
