Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
In an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer again checked in with Jim Whitehurst, president and CEO at Red Hat (RHT) - Get Red Hat, Inc. Report , the open-source software provider which just delivered a three-cents-a-share earnings beat with 19% revenue growth. The company also raised its full-year guidance and offered strong commentary. Shares of Red Hat soared 9.5% in today's session.
Whitehurst said that more companies are turning to the cloud, and Red Hat is the perfect partner whether you're in a public cloud or are operating in a traditional data center. The cloud is going mainstream, he added, with the retail and industrial sectors now riding the wave.
Government has also been a strong growth engine for Red Hat. Whitehurst said he's not been invited to the White House yet, but overall, the government is embracing the open-source model.
Finally, Whitehurst talked about the telecommunications industry transitioning to 5G technology. He said the while it's still early days, 5G could be a large business for Red Hat going forward.
