The Novell BrainShare crowd is a pretty unique bunch. You've done your share of configuring, installing and maintaining all kinds of enterprise software. So, it's safe to assume that you know all about how it can be both time-consuming and complex. The cumbersome process of installing and tuning the operating system (OS), middleware, and database, then integrating and configuring the software is manual and error-prone.
Well, are you interested in streamlining your software development process? If so, software appliances offer a new way to build and support tailored solutions with ease. They also provide an unprecedented opportunity to reduce the footprint of the combined installation, as well as the complexity of installation, maintenance and support.
