Newbury, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – August 12, 2008 – Enterprise application management and modernization solutions firm, Micro Focus, has scheduled its annual forum, to address the challenges and strategies for Enterprise Application Modernization.
Micro Focus World will be taking place in Dallas, Texas, between May 11-13, 2009. The event will be attended by customers and prospects from blue-chip organizations from across the globe and will include workshops and contributions from the analyst community.
Stephen Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Micro Focus noted, ”We are delighted to build on the success of last year’s Micro Focus World by hosting an even bigger event for customers, prospects, analysts and developers alike. Organizations’ core systems and their relationship with ‘cloud’ technologies will become a crucial topic of conversation for the IT world in the coming years. We are proud that we will be able to show over 750 delegates how, for the first time, these two previously disparate areas can now work in harmony to help businesses to become more responsive, more productive and ultimately more profitable.”
Key to the leadership event will be talks and demonstrations on how the most forward thinking enterprise application managers, architects and developers will be able to position their applications at the heart of ”cloud” initiatives in the coming years. COBOL, the most pervasive language in global IT infrastructures, will take its place at the forefront of this discussion. COBOL applications will become available as internet-based services, operating in the new cloud-based paradigms in the very near future, bringing major implications for the developer community. Workshops and presentations will examine how organizations’ core systems can cooperate with Web 2.0 technologies, while at the same time increasing the responsiveness of information technology and reducing operating costs.
The ability to manage enterprise applications and implement effective modernization strategies remains a key target for global organizations. Attendees of Micro Focus World will leave the event with the skills and knowledge to drive their modernization initiatives forward, enabling their respective businesses to become more efficient, more productive and more cost-effective.
