Reuters has Micro Focus to buy The Attachmate Group in all-share deal on their site this morning, and it will be interesting to see how the deal pans out. The hope right now is that it will close in early November 2014, which is when I will be in Salt Lake City for BrainShare 2014, so I am hoping that some more information about tentative plans for the future will be revealed then.
- Here is a link to the press release from The Attachmate Group.
- The Wall Street Journal has a short story on the proposed merger as well.
The Attachmate Group, Inc. is the privately held parent company for Novell, SUSE, Attachmate, and NetIQ. Three of the four of those companies currently have products in-use on campus at Martin Luther College. I’ll have more to say on this in the future as more information comes out.
