In the same time, opportunity to build the differentiators has become so slender that even a small decimal degradation in services can cause a big uproar in the ecosystem.

He added, “Continuous change in the threat landscape is constantly toughening challenges no keeping the Digital Assets safe and avoidable to the customers internally and external. Today, it has become crucial to build a robust and agile system to proactively monitor and prevent the assets from any unforeseen threat.

Karthik N, Country Manager - ITM, Micro Focus discussed on how availability is equally important to that of the product or service they are offering. “People switch cab service provider if there is no response within 15 seconds. Such is the time frame expectation from any customer”, he added.

Thanking the organizers for a well-orchestrated event, Jai Thomas, Head, IT and Infrastructure & Operations at DailyHunt and IT veteran explained that in an era where there is this question around ITIL and related process management going redundant because of DevOps, I think team MicroFocus has well-structured the offering with adequate reasoning as why DevOps is essential for any agile organization. “It was quite overwhelming to see how MicroFocus pretty much addressed all the needs of DevOps including security”, he said.
