ITWeb has announced that Micro Focus Universe 2018, a full-day event, will be held on 6 September at the Inanda Club in Sandton.

The event is Micro Focus's first local customer conference as a combined company, and aims to help experience how the company can help them address their toughest challenges in this hybrid IT world.

According to Gary de Menezes, country general manager South Africa for Micro Focus, delegates will have a chance to meet with Micro Focus executives, product specialists and R&D. "They will also have the opportunity to grow their skills via in-depth workshops, as well as discover the latest roadmaps and innovations. They will be able to explore our entire portfolio and see product demos live in action in the Experience Zone."

He says Micro Focus is now, with the acquisition of the HPE software business, one of the largest software companies globally. "In South Africa, there is a lack of awareness of who or what Micro Focus is and how we are already a part of a majority of customers' ecosystems. Up until 18 months ago, Micro Focus in South Africa was still branded as Novell out of its regional HQ in Rivonia Road, Johannesburg.

"We have transformed the business since then and we have the capability and solutions of an integrated portfolio spanning from the mainframe to the mobile and all elements in between. This event is intended to launch and demonstrate the full capability of the company in South Africa."

Menezes says the event will create an awareness of the company, its solutions and how it is able to play a major role in assisting South African customers towards achieving their digital transformation objectives in key areas such as mainframe modernisation and mainframe to the cloud, DevSecOps, hybrid IT operations management, the Internet of things, advanced security, and much more.

He says delegates will realise that Micro Focus is a leading, global software company with many of its solutions positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. "In addition, delegates will identify with many existing technologies and various brands which now form a part of Micro Focus and will come to realise that we most likely are already a major player within their environments, just currently under the guise of various different product solutions. At the event, we will join the dots to expose the depth and breadth of Micro Focus."
