Open Horizons Summit is designed to deliver an intensive and educational experience for the Micro Focus Channel Community. The conference is primarly targeting channel partners, however customers interested in advanced technical training are also welcome to join.
The Summit offers two programmes with different points of emphasis – a Technical Education Programme and a Business Programme.
The Technical Education Programme will offer over 50 hands-on Hot Labs covering the ITOM, ADM, Security and IM&G portfolios; ranging from introductory to advanced skill levels. It is the core of the Open Horizons Summit. Attendees can build their personalised agendas mapped to individual specialisations and needs. The Technical Programme is designed for Technical Presales Engineers, Systems Integrators, Delivery Consultants, Installation, Configuration and Administration Consultants who are responsible for engaging with customers, delivering proof of concept systems or installing and configuring any product within the Micro Focus portfolio.
The Business Programme is intended for partner executives, business development managers and sales specialists who are responsible for expanding their business and creating new opportunities.

Progress is impossible without change…
With a new date, new venue, and an extended new agenda with even more Hot Labs and business sessions, there will be many new features to the Open Horizons Summit 2018. But don’t worry, not everything will change. Many of the conference elements appreciated by participants in previous years will remain at this year’s Open Horizons Summit.
Knowledge transfer and networking opportunities – two guiding principles of the OH Community – are still the core of this technical conference.
