PROVO, Utah -- Novell, a prominent software and services company headquartered in Provo, merged with the UK-based company Micro Focus last year.

Earlier this month, Novell updated the signage on their building in Provo to reflect the change.

"We actually replaced the sign on the building. We took down the old 'Novell' and we put up the new 'Micro Focus.' So, that's really the big signal to the local community that Micro Focus is here. Micro Focus is committed to the local community just as Novell has been for over 30 years," said Emily Evangelista, Director of Digital Marketing for Micro Focus.

Employees signed the "N" from the old sign, and it will be placed in a museum to commemorate the history of the company.
