Today marks a significant milestone for Micro Focus. After months of anticipation, preparation and planning, the merger between HPE Software and Micro Focus is complete.
This is the start of a new chapter, and as CEO of the new, combined company, I cannot be more proud to be leading what is now one of the largest pure-play software companies in the world!
This merger matters.
It matters because we have brought together two companies with global scale and a proven track record of leadership in the software industry. It matters because we are a pure-play software company, 100% focused on building, selling and supporting software.
Micro Focus is uniquely positioned to help customers address the needs and opportunities of the new hybrid model for enterprise IT, from mainframe to mobile to cloud. With our broad portfolio of offerings, we help our customers get the highest ROI on the investments they have already made while embracing new innovations — essentially bridging the old and the new. Learn more about the combined portfolio through our Discover the New webinar series.
Our strong operational foundation is designed to deliver the highest value to our customers, partners, employees and shareholders, and prepares us to be one of the strongest software players in the industry.
