announces the June 8, 2007 availability of the public beta of its Riva
Collaboration Integration Suite Version 1.0 for GroupWise. GroupWise
customers are invited to register for a pre-release
sneak-peek web seminar of Riva's integrated GroupWise modules.
Riva GroupWise and eDirectory Modules and Reports
Riva's modules leverage the GroupWise Trusted Application architecture
to allow an administrator to create policies that are applied to each of
Riva's GroupWise Collaboration Integration modules.
"The Riva GroupWise Collaboration Integration Suite is the first
solution that delivers the ability for an administrator to deliver
multiple policy-based GroupWise and eDirectory modules and reports
from a single workstation application," said Mr. Trevor Poapst, Director
of Global Marketing and Channel Strategy for Omni. "By combining Omni's
stand-alone GroupWise utilities into an integrated administrator-based
application, Omni is responding to GroupWise administrator requests for
better control of information that can be pushed to user accounts."
"Riva is more than just the integration of a number of stand-alone
modules," continued Poapst. "Riva represents a platform for the future
development of additional eDirectory and GroupWise administration
modules and reports to meet administrators' needs."
"We have used Omni's Common
Calendar Utility for the last three years to 'pull' school and event
calendars into our staff and student GroupWise calendars," said Warren
Stewart, Network Project Manager for Contra Costa County Office of
Education in northern California. "CCU version 2, powered by Riva,
gives me the ability to 'push' this information to user accounts with
much better flexibility and granularity. The Riva installation wizards
are a breeze. The intuitive interface makes it easy to create and
manage multiple policies. I am already making plans to incorporate
additional Riva modules into our GroupWise administration
"Omni is well-known in the industry for its innovative approach to
delivering GroupWise and eDirectory integration and management
solutions," said Mr. Aldo Zanoni, CEO and Managing Director for Omni.
"Riva represents the cumulation of many years of listening to customers
and delivering solutions to meet their needs. The Riva engine has been
designed to deliver ultimate flexibility to add eDirectory and GroupWise
integration modules and reports. A good example of one of the most
anticipated Riva modules is the eDirectory to GroupWise Dynamic Distribution List module. This module
allows an administrator to create policies that automatically update
GroupWise Distribution Lists based on eDirectory group membership or
