    Borland support question.

    Folks ,

    we have licensed version of QA load and SilkPerfomer and we are looking at discontinue the support for one of the tools. It is been a while since i talked to Segue support or people using silkperformer.So i need your inputs on following items.

    1. Is SilkPerfomer still getting released ?
    2. Do you think Borland will continue to support this product for say next 5 years?
    3. What is the impact of Micro-Focus's bid on Borland Silk Product lines ?
    4. What would be the renewal cost for 100 VU SilkPerformer tool?. I am looking at basic 3 incident support deal.

    Re: Borland support question.

    1. Borland bought by Micro Focus for $75M May 6th, 2009
    2. I suggest that you visit the borland sitre for any more information.
    3. your last question would be easier answered if you drop them an email or give them a call
    I like what i know and I know what i like

    Re: Borland support question.

    The Micro-Focus deal has not gone through, its an offer which is going before the shareholders on 22nd July, they will decide whether to accept or reject the takeover then. There is another company interested in Borland so its far from a done deal.

    It obviously been a while since you used SilkPerformer since the Segue name was dropped about 3 years ago! Give Borland a call and raise your concerns with them.....

    Re: Borland support question.

    Did some search on the web and it looks like the Micro-Foucs had already acquired Compuware. Interesting move , i am not sure whether they will continue to sell QALoad and SilkPerformer or discontinue one of them.

    Both of them do pretty much same thing.

    Re: Borland support question.

    I would agree that if MF were to buy Borland they would probably end up consoildating the two products down to one. However, I don't think they will want to upset customers in the short term, and both products currently have roadmaps, dev teams and so on so I don't see anything changing short term. That said the deal may not go through so this is pure speculation.
