Micro Focus Content Manager is in the cloud, offering customers flexible compliance at lower cost of ownership
Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) has announced it has partnered globally with Citadel, to expand its Content Management product line to now provide Content Manager Select Software as a Service, an innovative managed service solution. The new service provides customers a one-stop cloud-based managed solution for content management that combines the strengths of Citadel’s longstanding Citadel-IXTM market presence for managed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions and Micro Focus’ longstanding market and technical expertise with Content Manager. The new offering provides robust, innovative content management software in a SaaS model that lowers the total cost of ownership and offers unrivalled customer flexibility.
Rick Carlson, vice president of product management, Micro Focus, said, “In collaboration with our partner, Citadel, Micro Focus is excited to take this next step in supporting customers’ digital transformation by introducing Content Manager Select Software as a Service. This offering provides a modern, SaaS-based solution to customers worldwide and enables us to deliver our industry-leading Content Manager solution as a fully managed service to address the ever-increasing shift to the cloud.”
Mark McConnell, CEO, Citadel, said, “Today’s announcement is the culmination of three years of innovation with Micro Focus to deploy Content Manager Select Software as a Service in the cloud on our Citadel-IXTM Platform. As a platinum Micro Focus partner, Citadel’s strong security and managed services history has enabled the rapid adoption of Citadel-IX in the market, and this agreement takes the platform globally to those Content Manager users looking to adopt a managed service model.”
Brandon Voight, Regional Director of Sales, Information Management, Micro Focus, said, “Micro Focus Content Manager is now in the cloud. Content Manager (also known as TRIM and RM) has been the foundation of electronic document and records management for more than 30 years. In that time, most governments and universities in Australia and New Zealand have come to rely upon Content Manager to capture, manage, and secure their information and meet compliance requirements.
“The new Micro Focus Content Manager Select Software as a Service provides a modern alternative to the traditional, standard software installation on a customer’s infrastructure. In recent years, an increasing number of tech-savvy government agencies and universities are recognising the many benefits of cloud. More than that, they are using this technology to manage their information more efficiently, better serve their customers and citizens, and reduce their costs and risks. All of this seems to indicate that given the direction in which the electronic document and records management system industry is moving, there’s never been a better time to embrace the cloud.”
Micro Focus Content Manager is a governance-based enterprise content management (ECM) system that enables a diverse array of global organisations and government agencies to manage their business content from creation to disposal. The new offering provides a secure cloud-based content management solution that accelerates digital transformation while addressing data sovereignty concerns.
Content Manager Select Software as a Service is available in three levels, representing different scales of required service. Gold, Platinum and Titanium levels provide a flexible choice of service provision in terms of supported users and service level commitments on response time and up-time.
