Open Horizons

Virtual Summit 2020

November 2020

From experts for experts!

What a year!!!

With a few more weeks to go 2020 is already exceptional in many ways. As the pandemic spreads around the world, nearly everything has changed. A little virus has redefined our everyday life, and we are still trying to understand all the consequences. Some of those are here to stay as we figure out how to coexist with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. While minimizing its impact on our health, we have also learnt that the corona experience is replicable if other viruses find their way into the midst of our society.

Working from home is the new mantra. Social distancing has changed the business and leisure travel reality. Knowledge worker productivity is achieved from within the comfort zone embedded into our family homes.

On that note we have to rethink business and community knowledge transfer. While digitalization is pushed to new levels, virtual events now play a key role in leveraging interaction among solution experts, partners and customers.

That said, we invite you to join the Open Horizons Virtual Summit 2020, the best destination for all Micro Focus & Open Horizons Partners, customers and community members in Europe, the Middle East and Africa interested in strengthening and extending their relationship within the Micro Focus ecosystem. Jointly delivered by Micro Focus and Open Horizons, this three-day conference is the ideal place to get advanced technical training and deep technical immersions to acquire cutting-edge knowledge and skills on the Micro Focus technologies you already use and those you will rely on in the future. Regardless of the markets you serve, whether you build, sell, service or run Micro Focus solutions, our summit will equip you with the expertise, game-changing insights, innovations, and technical enablement.
