Micro Focus Universe 2018 is the first Micro Focus customer forum that we are hosting as a combined company. It will take place at the Grimaldi congress center in Monaco, March 13-15.
When you attend the event, I encourage you to join the ITOM Customer Forum to experience and learn from your industry peers. During these sessions, you can hear case studies and best practices from your peers as well as get the latest product strategy and explore roadmap insights from Micro Focus product experts.
What will you experience in Monaco?
Micro Focus Universe covers a broad range of ITSM-related themes like service management, smart service desk, machine learning, advanced analytics, IT process automation, orchestration, hybrid IT, private cloud, public cloud, AWS, Azure, containers, Docker, IT digital transformation, DevOps, ChatOps, chatbots, IT4IT, and IoT.
Attending Micro Focus Universe is an excellent opportunity to network and exchange thoughts with industry peers, Micro Focus executives and product management, and Micro Focus partners.
