Micro Focus Universe is almost upon us, and it’s going to be one of the biggest events of the year for Micro Focus users and fans!

Those of you here in the Cool Solutions community know that end-user productivity is near and dear to our hearts. We love sharing new thoughts, ideas, product releases, and more that helps you work more productively, more securely, and with greater cost-efficiency. That’s why we, the product leaders here at Micro Focus, have helped design a fantastic set of programming for all of you at Micro Focus Universe 2019.

From specialized keynotes that focus on YOUR business and technology needs, to customer-led sessions and detailed roadmaps, all of our Universe attendees will find plenty to love in our End-User Productivity track.

A few quick highlights to entice our readers who are attending:

  • GroupWise: The Glue for Digital Transformation – In this customer-led session, we hear the story of The Bielefeld Chamber of Crafts, which represents 160,000 people working in 21,500 enterprises in the Bielefeld area of Germany. It’s a non-profit corporation under public law that provides a wide range of services to promote a strong and competitive skilled crafts sector. As a service provider the Bielefeld Chamber of Crafts must react to its customers’ demands in a quick, efficient, and sustainable way. Micro Focus GroupWise is the central component that connects various digital tools and enables the digital transformation of public administration. Employees use GroupWise not only as a calendar and email client, but also as a means to connect various software solutions with each other.
  • The Future of Micro Focus Filr – Get a sneak peek at the exciting road ahead for Micro Focus Filr’s new capabilities and directions that will drive benefits for you. Participate in feedback discussions to give us your thoughts on our future roadmap. And, see a live demo of one of the coolest new features that will make collaboration easy and safe without requiring data to be in the cloud or at a vendor’s mercy.
  • Enterprise Messaging and GroupWise Future Architecture – Want to see what Micro Focus is planning for the next generation of GroupWise architecture? This is the place. This session will discuss plans for containerization and offer a look at the new platform independent web based client for GroupWise.
  • Saving Costs with OES and DSfW – Another incredible customer-led session, this one deals with the experiences of Sauter, a company who, in 2017, decided to merge its Swiss headquarters’ Microsoft environment with its German IT department that had a long history with Novell and Micro Focus. The requirement was to integrate both environments to seamlessly reduce IT resources while increasing autonomy. Sauter and Micro Focus Professional Services developed a process that integrated the separate systems while enabling the company to achieve its goals. Open Enterprise Server 2018 with Domain Services for Windows is the foundation to connect its eDirectory and Active Directory based locations, providing users with services to connect with their required resources. Today 2,200 users and workstations in 100 locations are managed from Freiburg, Germany by an IT team of just 5.
  • File Governance Suite: The Challenges of Unstructured Data – Come and see how identity-based file management can protect your organization, simplify your IT burden, and give you total access to the world’s most valuable currency: data. Regulations, data breaches, ransomware, and compliance audits are just some of the many factors that are contributing to the expanding requirements of data governance. File Governance is all about the right people having the right access to the right data at the right time. An integration with Micro Focus Identity Governance gives organizations the power they need to expand the capabilities of access reviews. Additionally, the suite offers data protection capabilities that protect high-value targets on your network from potentially catastrophic ransomware attacks.
  • Unified Endpoint Management Futures – Join us for a look at the Endpoint Management roadmap. Learn what’s happening with all of your favorite ZENworks products, Micro Focus Desktop Containers, and Service Desk.…AND MUCH MORE!

Remember: Micro Focus Unvierse 2019 is happening March  26-28 in Vienna. Join us in the End-User Productivity Track to get the best sessions of the year!
