The New Micro Focus
A year in the making, software vendor Micro Focus has completed its $8.8 billion combination with Hewlett Packard Enterprise's software business, creating a new major player in the enterprise software market with a broad range of DevOps, hybrid IT management, security and big data analytics products.
Chris Hsu, who previously managed the HPE enterprise software business, is now CEO of Micro Focus as of Sept. 1, the first day of business for the new company.
On the eve of the company's launch, Hsu spoke with CRN and talked about what has been done so far to integrate the company, what is left to do, the company's expanded product lineup and what it all means for its 2,500 solution provider partners. Here are edited excerpts from the interview.
