This week in the BUZZ we announce the shipping of GroupWise 7 and the support of 3rd party products.
Have you heard?...GroupWise 7 North American Tour is coming to a city near you. Novell will be touring the US and Canada, visiting 30 cities, to show off the new GroupWise 7. Watch the www.groupwise.com site for more details.
Have you heard?...BrainStorm Inc is conducting intense 2-day GroupWise 7 courses. Each week, starting in September, BrainStorm is visiting a different city in North America to conduct GroupWise 7 Train the Trainer courses. More information about how to sign up and what is covered can be found at http://www.brainstorminc.com/services/trainingtour-groupwiseTTT.asp.
Have you heard?...A month or so ago I reported the Cisco was looking at supporting GroupWise with their IPT Phone and Voicemail system. Now it is official. Cisco has signed on as a Platinum Sponsor of the GroupWise 7 30-city tour. Cisco and GroupWise link together with a joint Novell/Cisco partner product called GW-Unify. You can find out more about integrated GroupWise and Voicemail at www.gwunify.com
Have you heard?...A new vendor has entered the GroupWise space with a pretty cool technology. The product is ManagePro and you can find information at www.managepro.com. This is a project management tool that integrates with GroupWise Tasks, Notes, and Email. The solution can be installed at your location, but also is provided in an ASP hosted model that allows you to use the solution without having to purchase software. I had a demonstration of the product last week at LinuxWorld and was very impressed. Especially impressed that it integrates with my GroupWise.
Have you heard?...Two GroupWise conferences are approaching that you will want to put on your calendar. The first is in Oct/Nov in Las Vegas. It is the GroupWise Advisor Summit. You can find out all the conference details at www.gwadvisor.com.
The second conference is GWAVACon II in January. Focused on solving GroupWise issues for GroupWise Administrators, GWAVACon is sponsored by GWAVA to help promote GroupWise solutions. You can find more information at www.gwava.com
