Neha Sandhu Named Red Hat’s 2018 Certified Professional of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO - RED HAT SUMMIT 2018 (May 8, 2018) — Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Neha Sandhu, senior support engineer at Spark New Zealand, has been named the 2018 Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year. The annual award honors a Red Hat Certified Professional (RHCP) who demonstrates ingenuity, hard work and expertise, and will be presented to Sandhu at Red Hat Summit 2018, currently taking place in San Francisco.

 

"Neha is the model of what today’s -- and tomorrow’s -- IT professional should be: always curious, always learning, always expanding skills and knowledge, always creating value by applying and sharing that knowledge. We are honored to count her among the Red Hat certified and to recognize her as this year’s Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year."

— Randy Russell, Director of Certification, Red Hat

 

Sandhu is both a Red Hat Certified Systems Administrator (RHCSA) and a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE). At Spark, she used her expertise to help modernize and containerize its legacy applications and was key in its transition to DevOps and agile methodologies. Sandhu took the initiative and built a Spark internal Innovation Lab on Red Hat Technologies and used knowledge she gained from Red Hat Learning Subscription to introduce new technologies within Spark.

 

Through Sandhu’s efforts, Spark is also now seeing success using a range of Red Hat technologies including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Virtualization, Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat Gluster Storage, Red Hat Ansible Automation, Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat Insights.

 

For the last 19 years, the Red Hat Certification program has had a single goal of building and validating skills through a program with rigorous, hands-on, and performance based testing. Red Hat’s certifications can help system administrators, application developers, and IT architects advance their careers and help close the skills gap facing the IT industry. RHCE, and all the programs that followed, establish benchmarks for what an IT professional should know when using Red Hat technology.
