Micro Focus joins AWS ISV Workload Migration Partner Program
Micro Focus has announced that its Application Delivery Management (ADM) portfolio has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Workload Migration Program, thereby expanding its existing work with AWS.
The AWS ISV Workload Migration Program supports software vendors that have a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering on AWS to drive and deliver workload migrations via a repeatable migration process.
Customers can migrate and run essential Micro Focus solutions, like Project and Portfolio Management (PPM), Application Lifestyle Management (ALM) Octane, the LoadRunner family, Application lifecycle management (ALM)/Quality Center, and the Unified Functional Testing (UFT) family, on AWS.
“Our on-premises customers now have an additional migration path to the cloud. They can migrate to the SaaS version of their systems or to the relevant module of the ValueEdge value stream management platform, and now they can also choose to migrate their on-premises instances to the cloud,” says Tal Levi Joseph, VP of Product Management for ADM, Micro Focus.
Micro Focus has a complete set of industry-leading ADM products included in this program. These include Micro Focus PPM (strategic portfolio and project portfolio management), ALM Octane (Agile & DevOps management), the LoadRunner family (performance engineering), ALM QC (quality governance), and the UFT family (functional testing across all modalities).
“Our product portfolio is focused on three primary capabilities: to build, operate and secure critical business applications and infrastructure. By applying proven expertise in software and security, we enable customers to utilise new technology solutions while maximising the value of their investments in critical IT infrastructure and business applications,” says Micro Focus.
Organisations of every type, size, and industry are using the cloud for various use cases, such as data backup, disaster recovery, email, virtual desktops, software development and testing, big data analytics, and customer-facing web applications.
For example, healthcare companies are using the cloud to develop more personalised treatments for patients. Financial services companies use the cloud to power real-time fraud detection and prevention. Video game makers are using the cloud to deliver online games to millions of players worldwide.
“The cloud gives you easy access to a broad range of technologies so that you can innovate faster and build nearly anything that you can imagine. You can quickly spin up resources as you need them–from infrastructure services, such as compute, storage, and databases, to Internet of Things, machine learning, data lakes and analytics, and much more,” says AWS.
“You can deploy technology services in a matter of minutes, and get from idea to implementation several orders of magnitude faster than before. This gives you the freedom to experiment, test new ideas to differentiate customer experiences, and transform your business”.
