Novell has acquired SiteScape, a provider of collaboration solutions and the founder of the ICEcore open source collaboration project. The merger between the two companies will create interoperable, open source and open standards-based workspaces to help with team productivity.
The deal to acquire SiteScape came about 18 months ago when the two companies entered into an OEM partnership in order to release Novell Teaming + Conferencing, a workspace and real-time conferencing solution that is centered on the ICEcore open source technology.
"The next logical step was to bring the two companies together to take advantage of the synergies," said Gregory Webb, collaboration product marketing manager with Novell.
