Frequently Asked Questions for the new Premium Support portfolio

  • What is happening?

    Micro Focus has launched a new Premium Support portfolio that takes the best of our previous FlexCare Support and Premium Support offerings, and combined them into one world-wide portfolio.

  • Why?
    To reduce the confusion and complexity of presenting our customers with two separate portfolios, and to provide our customers with a wider selection of offerings that better meet our customers’ diverse needs.
  • When did these changes take effect?

    The new Premium Support portfolio became available April 1, 2019.

  • I am a legacy FlexCare Support customer. What is changing for me?

    We are retaining all four of the highly popular FlexCare offerings in the new portfolio as follows:

    • The Technical Account Manager (TAM) will continue to provide you with the proactive technical guidance you have come to expect.
    • The Named Account Support Engineer (NASE) is being rebranded as the Named Support Engineer (NSE), and will continue to provide you with deep, technical expertise to resolve your incidents with speed.  The NSE services 6 customers, handling up to 35 incidents a year per customer.  We have enhanced this package by bundling in a Support Account Manager (SAM) to handle onboarding, escalation for critical issues, and quarterly reviews.
    • The Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) is being rebranded as the Enterprise Support Manager (ESM), and will continue to serve as your advocate within Micro Focus.  The ESM will coordinate support delivery, manage escalations, proactively ensure incident progression, and provide support guidance for your overall product portfolio.
    • The Account General Support Manager (AGSM) is being rebranded as the Strategic Support Manager (SSM).  The SSM will continue to provide global coordination and support oversight for your entire Micro Focus software investment.  Although you will not see this offering on our public pages; if you are interested in this offering, please talk to your Micro Focus representative or partner.

    New for FlexCare customers, we are introducing the following offerings:

    • The Solution Support Engineer (SSE) combines the technical guidance of the TAM, with the problem resolution expertise of the NSE, to provide comprehensive support for customers with complex, hybrid environments.  The SSE is dedicated to 4 customers, will visit the customer onsite 4 days a year, and will handle unlimited incidents up to 25% of the SSE’s time.  We bundle in a Support Account Manager (SAM) to handle onboarding, escalation for critical issues, and quarterly reviews.

    The Dedicated Support Engineer (DSE) is dedicated full-time to your support and is usually staffed directly at your site.  This is the highest level of support Micro Focus offers, and is essential for customers who want to ensure they have the necessary support structure to capitalize on the full value of their Micro Focus investment.

  • I am a legacy Premium Support customer. What is changing for me?

    We are retaining our three highly popular Premium Support offerings in the new portfolio as follows:

    • The Assigned Support Engineer (ASE) is being rebranded as the Named Support Engineer (NSE), and will continue to provide you with deep, technical expertise to resolve your incidents with speed.  The NSE services 6 customers, and will handle up to 35 incidents (up from 30 incidents) a year per customer.  We will continue to bundle a Support Account Manager (SAM) to handle onboarding, escalation for critical issues, and quarterly reviews.
    • The Primary Support Engineer (PSE) is being rebranded to Solution Support Engineer (SSE). The SSE continues to provide technical guidance and problem resolution, to provide comprehensive support for customers with complex, hybrid environments.  The SSE will continue to be dedicated to 4 customers, will visit the customer onsite 4 days a year, and will handle unlimited incidents up to 25% of the SSE’s time.  We will continue to bundle a Support Account Manager (SAM) to handle onboarding, escalation for critical issues, and quarterly reviews.
    • The Dedicated Support Engineer (DSE) has not changed, and is dedicated full-time to your support (usually staffed directly at your site).  This is the highest level of support Micro Focus offers, and is essential for customers who want to ensure they have the necessary support structure to capitalize on the full value of their Micro Focus investment.

    New for Premium customers, we are introducing the following offerings:

    • The Technical Account Manager (TAM) provides proactive technical guidance, supportability assessments, product planning, optimization and oversees the management of your support issues.
    • The Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) will serve as your advocate within Micro Focus.  The ESM will coordinate support delivery, manage escalations, proactively ensure incident progression, and provide support guidance for your overall product portfolio.
