Red Hat becomes strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation
By upgrading its membership status, Red Hat has committed to a stronger engagement with various Eclipse projects, in addition to entering the Eclipse IoT workgroup.
In return the new strategic member will be granted a seat on the Boards of Directors of the Eclipse Foundation and be allowed to participate directly in policy decision making.
Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, sees Red Hat’s membership as a major bolster for the Eclipse platform, describing Red Hat as a “well-respected leader in the open source community”.
We believe having Red Hat increase their level of commitment to Eclipse is a great endorsement of the Eclipse tools platform, our IoT technology, and the Eclipse community.
With the addition of Red Hat, the number of strategic members in the Eclipse Foundation has increased to 12. At present, the strategic members are comprised of Actuate, CA Technologies, CEA LIST, Codenvy, Google, IBM, Innoopract GmbH, itemis AG, Obeo, Oracle and SAP.
