In the recent Gartner Report, “Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning,” Novell is recognized for its focus on partnerships.
“Novell’s network of smaller, regional-based integration and consulting continues to grow through established integration providers such as Atos Origin, Deloitte and Wipro, as well as global alliance partners such as HP and SAP.”
Mixed IT environments are a reality for all organizations, which means our customers depend on our ecosystem of partners to reduce cost, complexity and risk. A great example of our partnership in action is highlighted in this SAP Insider article:
Let’s say an employee is changing roles from an accounting clerk to an accounting manager. For her new role, the accounting manager must have access to a new set of resources. For this, her organization needs to provide and track access, and instantly identify and provide alerts about any policy violations, such as gaining access to both the accounts payable and receivable systems. Properly setting up the accounting manager requires a strategic layering of technology, such as SAP BusinessObjects Access Control and the Novell Compliance Management Platform extension for SAP environments. This pairing helps companies ensure that business policies will be consistently enforced and monitored across SAP and non-SAP applications throughout the organization.
As John Dragoon appropriately says in this post, “Making IT work as one is who we are, what we do and it embodies the core values that we provide to our customers.”
