Red Hat was evaluated for The Forrester Wave™ based on 26 criteria grouped into three categories: current offering, strategy, and market presence. In the evaluation, Red Hat received the highest possible scores in the criteria of deployment, community support, product vision, planned enhancements, supporting products and services, partner ecosystem, and number of customers.

According to Forrester’s evaluation, Ansible Automation Platform “…excels at providing a variety of deployment options and acting as a service broker to a wide array of other automation tools.” The report also cites that, “A robust community ecosystem contributes to Ansible’s success. Compared with those of its competitors, the solution could do a better job of model editing,” and, “Red Hat’s solution is a good fit for customers that want a holistic automation platform that integrates with a wide array of other vendors’ infrastructure.”

Ansible Automation Platform is an expansive, enterprise-grade solution for building and operating automation at scale. It consists of Ansible Tower, Ansible Engine, Automation Services Catalog, and Automation Analytics and Automation Hub. As enterprises implement automation they often want to extend that automation across their organizations, which often requires a piecemeal approach, limiting its effectiveness and creating silos. Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform provides a complete platform for automating, enabling organizations to more easily scale automation across IT operations and development, including infrastructure, networks, cloud, security and beyond.
