. An estimated 35 million people use Novell’s GroupWise, the industry’s premier multiplatform collaboration solution.
GroupWise helps organizations maintain secure, authenticated communications within the enterprise as well as with companies and individuals beyond the enterprise’s firewall. GroupWise works across traditional, Web-based and wireless clients, providing users with integrated e-mail, instant messaging and scheduling, as well as task, contact and document management.
“Enterprises are now more reliant than ever on email and collaborative productivity tools,” said Richard Edwards, senior research analyst with the Butler Group. “Novell GroupWise is designed to enable people to work together intelligently from any location. With organizations evaluating their most fundamental IT purchase – their communications platform – on such issues as cost, functionality, scalability, reliability, security, interoperability and support, they will find GroupWise 7 hits the mark in just about every category, and upon close inspection surpasses the competition in a number of areas.”
In addition to its traditional focus on the GroupWise integrated collaborative environment, GWAVA is adding Novell ZENworks topics to the GWAVACon conference program. Novell ZENworks makes it easy for IT departments to deploy, manage and maintain resources in diverse IT environments. The integrated set of cross-platform tools automates management across the lifecycle of desktops, laptops, servers and handheld devices. Novell ZENworks lets customers eliminate administrator effort and reduce IT costs while delivering the IT resources that users need, when they need them—all based on identity.
From its inception, GWAVACon conferences have been the primary venue for Novell partners to issue important news regarding GroupWise products, services and technology. In 2005 Research in Motion revealed its GroupWise/Blackberry integration solutions at GWAVACon North America 2005. Intellisync and Novell gave the first sneak peek of GroupWise Mobility Server at GWAVACon North America in January. At GWAVACon Asia Pacific in June, Novell formally launched GroupWise 7 Service Pack 1, which promises to be the most flexible mobile collaboration solution in the industry.
GroupWise experts are traveling from the United States, Canada and from across Europe to speak at the conference.
“We are buoyed by the success of our North America and Asia conferences,” said Richard Bliss, vice president of marketing at GWAVA. “GroupWise users are fiercely loyal, and the latest release is creating new excitement for this collaboration environment. Having GWAVACon in Munich during Oktoberfest is a great way to celebrate GroupWise 7 SP1 and the success of Novell in Europe.”
