IBM acquired enterprise software company Red Hat last year for $34 billion.

Red Hat revenue for the quarter increased 17 percent, said IBM which earlier this month announced that it will separate its managed infrastructure services unit of its global technology services division into a new public company.

“Separating the managed infrastructure services business creates a market-leading standalone company and further sharpens our focus on IBM’s open hybrid cloud platform and AI capabilities,” the IBM CEO said.

“This will accelerate our growth strategy and better position IBM to seize the $1 trillion hybrid-cloud opportunities,” he added.

The company’s third-quarter results showed that global business services which include consulting, application management, and global process services posted revenues of $4 billion, down five percent driven by declines in application management and consulting.

Its global technology services revenues hit $6.5 billion, down four percent, the company said.
