MICRO FOCUS was a recent winner at the inaugural INQUIRER Tech Hero Awards 2015, which took place on 19 May.
The awards are aimed at celebrating the best of business technology, covering software and hardware products, along with innovation, events and people working in IT departments and at technology vendors.
We caught up with Scot Nielsen from Micro Focus after the ceremony to hear from him on what the firm has in store for the coming months for its Visual COBOL developer software.
Nielsen also discussed why the decades-old COBOL programming language is still relevant today, whether through ATMs or online shopping, and how Linux now fits into the Micro Focus stable with the acquisition of Suse.
