Micro Focus Announces Integration with Google Cloud Dual Run for Mainframe Modernization




Micro Focus’ market-leading mainframe replatform solution will integrate with Google Cloud’s first Dual Run product to eliminate common mainframe migration risks

SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced that its mainframe application modernization solution will tightly integrate with Google Cloud’s Dual Run product. Announced at Google Cloud Next, Dual Run works with technology from the Micro Focus production platform to accelerate, automate and reduce the risk of moving mainframe applications to Google Cloud.

Micro Focus’s cloud-agnostic attributes and high levels of mainframe compatibility allow it to play an important role in Dual Run capabilities by allowing the same application to run in any environment with virtually no change. This capability means that an organization can run its production workload on the mainframe in parallel with running in Google Cloud, where Dual Run can validate that the results are the same on both environments. Dual execution is particularly useful during the migration process, ensuring that the new system is functionally equivalent to the original system.

“Dual Run is a solution that will provide many organizations with a way to efficiently and securely migrate their mainframe systems,” said Neil Fowler, General Manager and Vice President of Application Modernization and Connectivity at Micro Focus. “The Micro Focus Mainframe Modernization solution has unique capabilities and features that have been developed based on decades of success enabling enterprises to modernize their core business systems, regardless of environment.

“Organizations in highly regulated industries like financial services, healthcare, public sector, etc. have the opportunity to modernize their legacy IT infrastructures, including mainframes, for the cloud era,” said Sachin Gupta, Vice President and General Manager, Infrastructure, Google Cloud. “Integrating Micro Focus technology with Dual Run enhances customers’ ability to run critical workloads simultaneously across their mainframe and cloud environments, a critical feature that enables Dual Run to greatly simplify and reduce risk. related to organizations’ mainframe migrations to the cloud.

Dual Run is built on a unique technology developed by Banco Santander. Santander uses Micro Focus for some of its basic modernization needs.

“Our relationship with Micro Focus has resulted in enhancements to Micro Focus products and our core bank migration system that have exceeded our expectations, resulting in increased capabilities and efficiency of the work through scalability and close collaboration across teams,” said David Chaos, Global CIO of Santander.

Many of the enhancements made to Micro Focus solutions during this project with Santander will benefit businesses in banking and other industries looking to modernize their core business systems and move to the cloud.
