By Ken Baker, Novell Connection Magazine - November 2010
Here's an excerpt:
In an announcement on November 9th, Novell reaffirmed its commitment to innovative team collaboration through its plan to bring together Novell Teaming and Novell Pulse into a coordinated development roadmap. As part of this coordinated effort, Novell will leverage the strengths of each offering to deliver real-time, enterprise-class team collaboration through on-premise and cloud-based deployment options. In conjunction with this merging of product roadmaps, Novell has renamed Novell Teaming and Novell Pulse to Novell Vibe OnPrem and Novell Vibe Cloud, respectively. This article will explore the details surrounding this announcement and what it means for Novell collaboration customers.
Novell reaffirmed its commitment to innovative team collaboration through its plan to bring together Novell Teaming and Novell Pulse into a coordinated development roadmap.
Both Novell Vibe OnPrem and Novell Vibe Cloud address common team collaboration needs. These include helping people stay informed; tapping into innovative ideas; making better decisions; finishing joint work faster; better leveraging knowledge assets; fostering productivity; and connecting more effectively with team members, partners and customers. And while the two products were based on different approaches to achieving these goals, Novell saw an opportunity to better leverage the strengths of both tools and deliver one cohesive solution for enterprise team collaboration.
As part of its coordinated development effort, Novell Vibe will harmonize the two deployment options over time, bringing together the best of the team workspace approach featured in Novell Teaming and the social business approach pioneered by Novell Pulse. To accomplish this, the Novell Vibe development team will work to combine next-generation capabilities such as real-time social messaging and online document co-editing with file management, groups, profiles, workflow, and security and management controls. The result will be a unified platform that makes it even easier for users to work together and drive better and faster business results, while giving organizations the deployment flexibility and security they need.
The first results of these coordinated efforts will be seen when Novell Vibe OnPrem ships in late 2010 and Novell Vibe Cloud ships in mid-2011. But the initial steps toward this integration are visible in the open betas available now for both deployment options.
