I’m penning this blog to introduce myself as the new Senior Vice President for Micro Focus’ Federal Business Unit. What’s my pedigree? Work with NetIQ, which is now part of the Attachmate Corporation, BMC Software and NASA. My background? I’m a retired member of the US Navy Reserve with more than 20 years of combined active duty and reserve service. And now I have the fresh challenge of leading a new team.
How does this help you? My life and work experiences have given me a perspective on problem-solving that few others have. I understand how the right technology, used correctly can resolve most problems. I also know good solutions when I see them and this role puts me in touch with plenty.
Solutions to issues
For nearly 40 years, COBOL has supported modern architectures and operating systems. Now, Micro Focus Visual COBOL customers are building Cloud services, mobile applications, or deploying into .NET or JVM. Our customers can choose where they deploy their core applications, both now and for many years to come.
Want your legacy applications to embrace modern architectures? Better performance at reduced cost and risk? Start by analyzing your application portfolio and use that insight to develop, test, and modernize mission-critical applications.
As the ‘head of Fed’, I hear a lot about modernization and cost-cutting. Micro Focus modernization tools have already saved one Federal agency $11m a year and the US Postal Service are $6m a year better off. I’d be happy to walk you through some great case studies and testimonials.
It’s this communication that will help to ensure our solutions align with your mission and vision. It is only by understanding your business pain can we help to resolve it.
I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how your team leverages Micro Focus technology. In the meantime, I encourage you to follow us @MicroFocus and join us in our online community forum.
Thanks for reading. It’s great to be here.
