Micro Focus moving to OpenText signals the time is right for Micro Focus customers to also move on

Organizations relying on testing tools from Micro Focus (and before that, HPE) to ensure the quality of their digital initiatives recently received sobering—if not surprising—news: Micro Focus announced that it was being acquired by OpenText, giving the company’s aging testing products their second “new home” in five years (Micro Focus acquired ALM/Quality Center, UFT, and LoadRunner as part of their 2017 purchase of HPE’s software business).

If you are a Micro Focus customer, chances are you were already thinking about migrating your Micro Focus tools to more modern alternatives. After all, ALM/Quality Center, UFT, and LoadRunner were built long ago to support yesterday’s software development process—not today’s Agile development and delivery cycles. For many IT leaders, relying on Micro Focus’s legacy testing tools to ensure the success of mission-critical transformations such as cloud migrations and ERP modernization projects is just too risky a proposition. The company’s impending sale introduces even more potential risk, making now the right time for you to move on from Micro Focus.

Fortunately, Micro Focus customers have a compelling alternative in Tricentis. Here’s why:

  • Tricentis is a rapidly growing company with innovative products that offer a fundamentally different way to tackle software testing — one that is automated, codeless, and intelligently driven by AI.
  • Analysts such as Gartner, Forrester, and IDC consistently rank Tricentis as a leader in test automation.
  • Switching from Micro Focus to Tricentis helps companies around the world, including Guardian, Experian, and Vodafone, gain better business value by completing software projects faster, with less risk, and greater efficiency.

So if you’re looking for modern test automation and management solutions to replace Micro Focus ALM/Quality Center, UFT, and LoadRunner, you are in the right place.

Tricentis has proven success helping Micro Focus customers migrate to our products. To help you learn more, we’ve created guides for the following migration scenarios:
