Micro Focus has released its Hybrid Cloud Management X (HCMX) software-as-a-service (SaaS). The product was earlier recognized as the “Global Winner” in the Research in Action (RIA) Vendor Selection Matrix: Hybrid Cloud Service Management Tools, 2021, as well as being cited as one of two leaders in The Forrester Wave: Hybrid Cloud Management, Q4 2020.
HCMX unifies hybrid-cloud and on-premises fulfillment operations by providing self-service resource provisioning with transparent cost control and governance built in. HCMX is now available for customers to consume as SaaS with an easy migration path for existing Micro Focus cloud management customers (e.g., Cloud Security Alliance, Hybrid Cloud Management (HCM), or on-premises HCMX). HCMX SaaS comes fortified with multi-layered security and is ISO 27001 and ISO 27034 certified and SOC 2 compliant.
“We are very pleased to announce the availability of our popular hybrid cloud management solution, alongside our other ITOM offerings, as an independent SaaS product,” said Rohit De Souza, Senior Vice President and General Manager of ITOM at Micro Focus. “HCMX has been available via our SMAX platform as SaaS, and as a standalone product on premises, but SaaS makes HCMX easier to adopt through flexible consumption and licensing models that reduce start-up costs, while helping organizations optimize their cloud utilization.”
HCMX is part of the Micro Focus Enterprise Service Management (ESM) platform, offering modular solutions across Information Technology (IT) Security Management, Information Technology Asset Management, Process Automation, Discovery and Topology, and the aforementioned Cloud Management. All modules share a single service portal and catalog, providing employees with a unified experience as well as one-stop shopping for any service, from IT to human resources, to public cloud consumption.
Micro Focus HCMX includes Lifecycle Management Orchestration, Blueprint Designs that Work Anywhere, Self-Service with Governance Guardrails, and Cloud Cost Optimization.
As part of Micro Focus’ SaaS strategy for their Enterprise Service Management ESM portfolio customers, HCMX joins Service Management Automation X (SMAX) SaaS and Asset Management X (AMX) SaaS in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
