Today's IT Solutions Need to Be "Open, Secure and Global," Says Novell's Messman
"We Give Our Customers Real Choice," He Adds

"Enterprises around the world are demanding robust, high quality products that provide a clear alternative to legacy infrastructure applications," said Novell CEO Jack Messman yesterday, the first day of Novell's annual BrainShare user conference in Salt Lake City.

"Only Novell, with our 20 plus years of experience serving the enterprise, is delivering open and secure solutions that deliver real value," Messman added.

He continued: "Our leadership in Linux is giving customers more options than ever before for their computing needs, while our identity driven services deliver comprehensive security for the most complex enterprise environments. We have a truly global ecosystem, unmatched by other Linux vendors, with offices in 43 countries and over 5,000 technology, services and training partners delivering support for Novell's customers worldwide. We give our customers real choice."

Novell is introducing a number of new offerings for the Linux market and new technologies to leverage identity and web services for comprehensive network security and integration. New products Novell is announcing at BrainShare include:

  • ZENworks 7, the first systems management suite to allow customers to manage Windows workstations on a SUSE LINUX server;
  • The Novell Linux Small Business Suite, a full-featured networking and collaboration environment on Linux for the small business market.

Novell is also announcing extended support for Novell GroupWise and a number of significant enhancements for the next version of the product, due this summer; two new foundation platforms, providing customers and partners an integrated security and application services stack that uniquely combines the power and cost benefits of open source with the innovative and time to market advantages of vendor developed software; and an expanded relationship with JBoss, with Novell contributing code and engineering resources to the development of the open source JBoss Enterprise Middleware System project.

Novell is also announcing two new initiatives to accelerate the growth of the Novell global partner ecosystem:

  • The Novell Market Start program, which will open Novell's global distribution and support channels to open source independent software vendors (ISVs);
  • The Novell Validated Configuration program, which will define multi- application, integrated application and platform stacks on Linux to reduce risk and ease deployment for customers in complex Linux network environments.

"Today, Novell delivers solutions to customers that are open, secure and global," Messman observed. "We're thrilled to have this time at BrainShare with our customers to discuss new ways to make them more competitive, effective and productive."

Anyone want to meet up after BrainShare - reach me on IM if so...you have my ID

I am not a sysadmin or even a real networking dude; my network-grok is at best crude. However... when I went to Novell's seminar and watched the ZenWorks live demo, my immediate thought was, "That is SO simple, even *I* could do that". How to accomplish desired tasks was flamingly evident, and did not assume any serious knowledge of networks beyond "this is connected to that". Very much designed for real people in the real world, not just for toplevel experts.
