2020 Fed 100

Federal 100: Paul Smith


Name: Paul Smith
Title: Senior Vice President and General Manager, Public Sector
Organization: Red Hat

Open, agile and secure. Smith has been a vocal and effective advocate for agencies’ adoption of hybrid cloud computing platforms and DevSecOps to better power government missions. Under his leadership, Red Hat is working with Raytheon to create a DevSecOps solution that can be deployed in classified environments. And by adding the OpenShift Container Platform to ORockCloud, Smith’s team can now offer agencies a fully managed, FedRAMP-compliant and continuously monitored platform-as-a-service solution. Among the many wins for Red Hat customers in 2019, a digital Puckboard application replaced a previously manual process and dramatically improved aircraft and pilot scheduling for the Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force.
