IT in Action: Tackling Today's Challenges
Life as an IT professional can quickly become a non-stop blur of activity, whether you're deploying software, configuring desktops, justifying your already bare-bones budgets or cleaning up after the latest end user debacle. The IT in Action multi-city tour is geared specifically toward helping you find new and better ways to keep up with this frenetic pace. Over the course of a full day, you'll learn important details about strategy, futures and implementation best practices for Novell Collaboration, Endpoint Management and Identity and Security solutions. This includes innovative new ideas for:
- Boosting workforce productivity and accelerating innovation with the latest Novell personal and team collaboration tools. You'll learn how you can use the new Novell GroupWise 8 to strengthen your collaboration foundation and explore new ways for using Novell Teaming to arm your teams with innovative new tools that drive innovation and out pace the competition.
- Improving security and extending IT resources by automating identity, storage and access management processes. This includes learning how Novell Storage Manager and Novell SecureLogin make it easy to grant role-based access to important resources. You'll also explore how these two technologies can provide a strong foundation for addressing a range of other security- and compliance-related challenges.
- Saving your IT staff time and effort by managing today's ever-expanding range of endpoint devices more efficiently. You'll learn how the new ZENworks 10 Configuration Management and ZENworks Application Virtualization can streamline and automate the way you manage your entire endpoint environment.
- Improving your workgroup computing environment with Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP1. You'll learn how new features, including Domain Services for Windows and Dynamic Storage Technology, can save you money, increase your environment's flexibility and improve interoperability.
And of course, Novell is bringing all this valuable knowledge-along with the Novell experts who know how to bring it to life-to a hotel ballroom near you. The IT in Action Tour is still a couple of months away, but it's definitely not too early to save the date, pre-register and reserve your spot.

The Tour Is only the Beginning
The Novell Data Center Evolution and IT in Action Tours are clear, visible markers of Novell's commitment to bringing new education and training opportunities directly to you-but they're only the beginning. The face-to-face tours signal the launch of a whole range of new, interconnected educational resources you can take advantage of without going anywhere near an airplane. This starts with a new Virtual Education Resource Center that allows you to access free, high-quality recordings of sessions from the face-to-face tours and tap into "deep dive" technical webinars. Novell is also offering a range of new fee-based local and online Advanced Technical Training options that bring quality, in-depth technical training to your city or computer screen. Future Connection articles will explore these other opportunities in more detail.
The bottom line is this: Traveling long distances to user conferences and training events is simply not an option for many businesses right now, but you still need quality education and training to do your job effectively. Novell is determined to fill that gap. The upcoming Novell multi-city tours-and the new online resources and Advanced Technical Training options that go with them-are tangible examples of that determination, and they're available to you right now.
