by Micro Focus Employee in Information Management & Governance

In its latest Omdia Universe, a report published annually by the analysts at Omdia, leading content services platforms are critiqued and rated on their relative positions in the market. The report explores the content services landscape, highlighting areas in which organizations should be cognizant of and strive to implement in their approach as best practices. This can be a very useful report for any decision-makers within an organization to draw up a short list of products to consider in their overall information management approach.

This year’s report has Micro Focus pretty excited as it has improved its position in the rating. In the previous report, Micro Focus was classified as a ‘Challenger’ in the space. While this position is not bad by any means, there was room for improvement. This year Omdia recognized Micro Focus as a ‘Leader’ in the space.

Micro Focus is proud of the fact it is always refining and improving its products. Many of the improvements come directly from customers and the people using the products every day, making Micro Focus products as customer-centric as they come. With a laser focus on customer satisfaction and performance, it’s no wonder the content services capabilities within the Micro Focus line of products have risen to be among the best in the world.
