The mission of AMC (Application Modernization and Connectivity) is to help our customers bridge the now and the next-- enabling them to unlock the value within existing application investments. We strive to help our customers run and transform their core business systems written in COBOL as well as applications running on the mainframe.
Our customers want to transform their core business applications in response to the digital demands of their customers, employees and marketplace. Digital Transformation is the key driver for change and our customers need answers on how to achieve it.
From our years of experience, we know that success rates for radical “rip-and-replace” transformation projects are significantly low, so Micro Focus does not recommend that approach. Instead, there is a growing trend toward modernization as a more pragmatic approach to transformational change for business applications.
In fact, here at Micro Focus, we believe the smartest way to digitally transform is for our customers to build on what they have – bridge the old and the new through modernization.
Over the past few years, we have found there is a demand for online training and education programs.
There are various reasons why the demand for virtual training occurred (obviously COVID-19 is one of these reasons as people shifted towards a hybrid working location culture).
To answer this increased demand, Micro Focus has defined set of online curriculums, and courses within those curriculums, exams, and certification badges that enables students to improve their product knowledge.
Partner Ecosystem is a key audience for this training. Especially our Alliances that can work with our customers to qualify opportunities, manage the presales cycle, and do the final project delivery working as an extension of our own company experts. With this initiative, we also support the mainframe Centers of Excellence (COEs) in our Alliances premises, so MF Enterprise is the rehost solution of choice, and we monitor the refactoring business delivery challenges.
Partners certification is a key element of our enablement strategy providing a guarantee to our customers of a quality delivery by Micro Focus certified experts
