Mirco Focus completes their merger with Hewlett Packard
Micro Focus has announced the completion of its merger with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) software business to create a pure-play enterprise software company. This merger brings together the two companies together to form a new, combined company uniquely positioned to help customers maximize existing software investments and embrace innovation in a world of Hybrid IT. Upon close, Chris Hsu, formerly COO of HPE and Executive Vice President and General Manager of HPE Software, was appointed CEO of Micro Focus.

“Today marks a significant milestone for Micro Focus, and I am honored to be leading this team,” said Chris Hsu, Chief Executive Officer of Micro Focus. “We are bringing together a powerful combination of technology and talent uniquely positioned to drive customer-centered innovation at enterprise scale - enabling organizations to maximize the ROI of existing software investments while embracing the new hybrid model for enterprise IT.”

According to a recent report published by the Harvard Business Review, “Business leaders anticipate that even more of their applications will reside in various third-party data centers in the near future. But critical legacy applications may not be going anywhere for some time. So orchestrating a mix of systems will become even more critical. Hybrid IT will be the dominant approach - and developing robust hybrid IT capabilities will be a competitive advantage.”

“Our business strategy remains sound: bringing together software assets that deliver a high degree of value to our investors and an expansive solution portfolio to our customers so they can maximize the value of existing IT investments and adopt new technologies – essentially bridging the old and new,” said Kevin Loosemore, Executive Chairman of Micro Focus. “We’re excited to have Chris lead the combined company as we embark on this journey of uniting our organizations to create a world-class, pure-play enterprise software company.”
