It’s Hot: New Novell Conferencing Opens the Door to Easy, Inexpensive and Effective Web Meetings
By Ken Baker, Novell Connection Magazine - April 2010
Here's an excerpt:
You have people in multiple locations across the country, and maybe even around the world, but tight travel budgets make it impossible to bring them together often enough for face-to-face meetings. You may have looked at or tried different Web conferencing options, but likely found that they were too expensive, overly complex or too difficult to use. To make matters worse, these Web conferencing offerings typically aren't able to integrate with your other collaboration tools, such as e-mail and team workspaces. Novell has the answer with its inexpensive, easy-to-host and join Web conferencing product—Novell Conferencing.
Novell Conferencing makes it easy to host and join Web events.
Before we go any further, you need to understand that this is a completely different offering than what was available in Novell Teaming + Conferencing. In fact, that SKU has now been removed from the Novell price list. Novell now has two separate SKUs: Novell Teaming and the newly released Novell Conferencing. If you’re a customer of the old conferencing product, this article will cover how Novell will make it easy for you to take advantage of the new Novell Conferencing product. First, however, let's discuss why Novell made the move to this offering. The answer is opportunity—the opportunity to offer a Web conferencing tool that:
- Is easier to use
- costs less
- provides both video and audio conferencing
- works on Windows, Linux and Mac clients
- integrates with Novell GroupWise Instant Messenger, as well as Novell GroupWise and Novell Teaming
