One Hat, Two Hat, Red Hat, Green Hat

Yesterday, we learned that Solstice Software, a well-regarded maker of automated software testing tools, was purchased by a London-based SOA testing company, Green Hat Consulting. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

I’d never heard of Green Hat before, and my first thought was, “What an original name.”

Green Hat Consulting was formed in 1996. The biggest colorful cap-monickered software company, Red Hat, was founded in 1993. Who else is out there?

There’s a software company called BigBlueHat, which does Web site design from its offices in Greenville, S.C.

Orange Hat Software Consulting, Watertown, Conn., is a small IT company that specializes in computer tune-ups, custom code development and document management.

Know of any others?

    Thanks for the mention. There are a lot of colorful hats out there.

    You might also add Six Thinking Hats to your list. I’ve not read it, but I’ve heard it’s good and sums up the “real” meaning behind all these colorful hats. 🙂
