*UKHotViewsExtra* Micro Focus: direction, imperatives and relevance

Micro Focus logoRecent times have seen Micro Focus release a H1 trading update pointing to positive progress from its recovery programme, and deliver its Universe customer conference where it had an opportunity to position its strategy and products in the context of market trends and customer needs. Following some tough years that included work on the troublesome HPE Software integration programme, now is a good time to look at what the company stands for and what it can offer partners and customers.

It is on a growth quest to reverse revenue decline through a focus on ‘high tech, low drama’ transformation practicalities, initiatives to line its broad portfolio up behind key business outcomes and leverage key IP like Vertica across the portfolio. In addition, security has now been elevated to the CyberRes line of business but integration with the rest of the Micro Focus applications remains key which creates opportunities around secure applications. 

Micro Focus’ positioning is still emerging but it does have more of a connected story to tell that addresses the issue of its relevance to digital transformation agendas.
