Micro Focus Service Management Automation-X simplifies end user experience and drives down operational costs using advanced analytics; it provides true customer choice and is the only solution available for deployment on premise virtualized, on bare metal, or on public cloud infrastructure.
Micro Focus (LSE:MCRO; NYSE:MFGP) today announced a major release of its Service Management Automation product. Service Management Automation-X (SMA-X) offers the industry’s most engaging Service Experience, the only one that offers a chatbot-powered virtual agent, a mobile application, integrated social networking, smart ticketing with Optical Character recognition and smart email. In addition, SMA-X is the industry’s first container-based, multi-tenant platform that enables organizations and Managed Service Providers (MSP) to cost-effectively address their most stringent SLAs. By allowing full data sovereignty, SMA-X customers and MSPs can ensure the security and location of their service data to meet data privacy and compliance requirements.
