It’s an exciting new age for technology and work! Micro Focus, along with our partners and customers, have navigated the survival phase and now we’re moving into thrive mode.

Join us, our leading industry sponsors, and hundreds of IT and business decision-makers at this interactive virtual event to discover how technologies enable us to go beyond business as usual, to business next level!

Much more than a webinar, the Micro Focus Realize Customer Forum will take you to plenary sessions and track rooms where you can engage with experts; give you access to virtual partner booths for one-on-one demos and business meetings; and open up the full networking experience.

Meet our sponsors, including Platinum Sponsors iOCO and Zensar and Gold Sponsors Altron Security and Secured Identity Technologies! Visit the all-new SMME Centre! And get insights from Micro Focus experts like our international CMO, Genefa Murphy and our senior VP and GM, Application Delivery Management Product Group, Raffi Margaliot.

Micro Focus is here to help you remain at the forefront of technology while controlling budgets, leveraging data and ensuring security.

At Micro Focus Realize, you will:

  • See digital transformation in action;
  • Learn from the key customers from across industry how to go beyond surviving to thriving;
  • Participate in conversations targeted at your specific needs;
  • See presentations and demos of the latest product releases; and
  • Build skills in expert-level workshops.

Micro Focus helps organisations like yours run and transform your business. Micro Focus software provides the critical tools you need to build, operate, secure and analyse your entire enterprise. By design, these tools bridge the gap between existing and emerging technologies – which means you can innovate faster, with less risk, in the race to digital transformation. See how we can help you go from survive to thrive!

We are proud to announce our 2020 keynote speaker, Saray Khumalo. As we navigate our way through these unprecedented times and towards the ‘new normal’, we have hand-picked Khumalo to help us. Khumalo has been on many a journey to change her perception of ‘normal’. Her latest expedition: the South Pole – 2020 – the first black woman on the southernmost point of Earth, promises to be no different. Hear first-hand how she overcame numerous hardships to triumph in the end.

We have also secured Fifi Peters, financial journalist at CNBC Africa, as the emcee for the occasion. We know you will love her wit and charm, as well as deep understanding of the South African financial sector, and we look forward to the insights she will bring to the fore on 15 – 17 September 2020.
