To strengthen your ability to deliver the open collaboration your customers need, Novell is pleased to announce the acquisition of SiteScape, Inc. As part of a broad unified communications and collaboration strategy—and as the next logical step in a partnership that has already yielded significant market interest and the successful launch of Novell Teaming + Conferencing—this acquisition provides concrete benefits to partners like you.
To begin with, this acquisition represents further proof of Novell's commitment to delivering innovative and open collaboration solutions. It also increases our ability to offer open alternatives for team productivity and real-time conferencing that you and your customers can count on for the long-term. With the strength of ownership comes greater commitment to the technology, enhanced flexibility to create the programs and policies customers and partners need, and an increased capacity to deliver even more of the innovation and interoperability Novell is known for.
In addition to these general benefits, this acquisition brings you:
- A single development team to deliver team productivity innovations more efficiently than ever before.
- The ability to sell add-on modules for telephony and advanced workflow (previously only available from SiteScape) that increase the value of Novell Teaming + Conferencing and open up lucrative service opportunities.
- Increased product integration between Novell Teaming + Conferencing and GroupWise, giving you and your customers more reason to feel confident in your Novell collaboration investments.
- An invitation to directly influence the direction and overall customer impact of Novell Teaming + Conferencing through the ICEcore open source project.
