As most GroupWise users know, the user community is tight knit and loyal. Willem Bagchus pointed out "the almost-religious zeal and loyalty reminiscent of Mac users," and he went on to say that "GroupWise exists today mainly because the user base would not let it die. GroupWise users are loyal."
Members of the GW community often help each other find the right solutions, and there exists a significant opportunity to support companies using GroupWise with complementary apps and services.
GroupWise users rely on each other to solve problems, almost like a family. Novell hosts Brainshare every year to assist collaboration, the community stays in touch through forums like Novell.com
& GWCheck.com, and users listen to each other's success stories.
Archiving is a particularly hot topic for many admins managing the GroupWise Post Office. Native GroupWise archives are scattered throughout the Post Office, servers are often overloaded with exploding emails/attachments, and it is often difficult to retrieve emails for search requests. These are real problems, but there has traditionally been a lack of options for applications to ease these, and other, pain points.
To keep GroupWise users happy and efficient outside of the platform, more value-added services designed specifically for GroupWise are needed. For example, CWS Capital Partners needed to comply with FINRA and manage millions of emails, and so they selected a hosted email archiving service for GroupWise
So for GroupWise users: What other applications would you like to see integrated with GroupWise? Please leave your wish lists in the comments!
