"Attendance at Micro Focus Universe has been steadily increasing over the past few years – with a considerable spike last year as we evolved the traditionally in-person event to virtual – and we expect the addition of Jaguar Racing to the agenda to provide another significant boost in 2021," said Eric Varness, Chief Marketing Officer at Micro Focus. “Our customers love to hear from their peers about the innovative ways our technology can be used, and our new position as Jaguar Racing’s official digital transformation, business resiliency and analytics partner will certainly provide some exciting new success stories.”

A key theme at this year’s event will be how Micro Focus can help its customers win in the digital economy by delivering on the promise of High Tech, Low Drama.  With more than 1,000 product releases in the last 24 months and one of the world’s largest patent portfolios, Micro Focus is already in a strong position to deliver high tech.  Low drama emphasizes the company’s commitment to bringing together the product breadth, technology and expertise necessary to help customers run and transform at the same time without surprises. 

“IT executives are experiencing new and augmented challenges as the market reaches a new equilibrium, and what’s perhaps more important than ever is to help them adapt with confidence.  Micro Focus combines pragmatism, discipline and customer-centric innovation to deliver trusted, proven solutions that customers need in order to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving marketplace,” concluded Varness.
