Micro Focus Hybrid Cloud Management X Achieves a Leader Status in the Independent Q4 2020 Research Report

SANTA CLARA, CA - December 7, 2020 – Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced that its Hybrid Cloud Management X (HCMX) solution has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid Cloud Management, Q4 2020. The report states that “Reference customers praised Micro Focus for its discovery and aggregation methods, service orchestration, administrator and user dashboards, and template and workflow designers.”

“Micro Focus HCMX gives IT operations teams the power to automate service delivery and offer a convenient IT service fulfillment experience for developers” said Tom Goguen, Micro Focus Chief Product Officer. “Building our own software factory, we deployed HCMX to provide developers with self-service while transparently governing usage. We were able to reduce infrastructure and cloud costs by $1 million and redeployed $5M worth of hardware in the first year as a result. Through our own success with HCMX, as well as that of our customers, we are honored to be named a leader in this most recent Forrester Wave for Hybrid Cloud Management.”

HCMX is the industry’s first cloud-native, multi-tenant cloud management solution that can run in the public cloud or on-premises, providing multi-cloud service consumption in a single view with analytics-based recommendations for discount management, enabling customers to easily achieve the benefits of speed, scale, agility and cost reduction while leveraging existing on-premises investments.

Micro Focus HCMX “is a good fit for large enterprises that require highly complex environment management,” the Forrester report states. “Customers also liked its support services, claiming good onsite support with its professional services team to train and onboard end users in migration and in developing workload and self-service components.”

“With automation being a crucial part of our operations, we needed a single solution to manage all of our IT workflows effectively," said Riccardo Montanari, Manager of Cloud Platform & Service Provisioning of Snam. “By implementing Micro Focus HCMX, we will be able to provision IT services both into our data center on prem and on cloud faster, with clear benefits from greater flexibility and the ability to provide easy-to-manage governance guardrails."

“Micro Focus Hybrid Cloud Management has been extended to provide end-to-end service fulfillment and governance across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, including day 2 operation actions,” said William Fellows, Research Director, 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. “It addresses public cloud overspending, slow internal resource delivery, the complexity of building and deploying hybrid IT, and the management of siloed tools.”

As digital transformation continues to drive strategic business change, Micro Focus HCMX is one of the ways Micro Focus helps customers leverage their existing on-premises investments and lower the total cost of ownership for IT.
