Novell, Inc., the leading provider of Net services software, today announced that the company's eBusiness technology was selected as the "Best New Software" by attendees of CMP Media's recent Cyber XChange conference. At the conference, which brings together more than 400 solution providers, Web integrators, distributors and vendors representing a $100 billion annual market, Novell highlighted new service and revenue opportunities that Novell's identity, security and integration technologies drive. The selection of Novell as a winning technology by leading solution providers and Web integrators confirms Novell's success in bringing its core networking strengths beyond the corporation to the Net.

Novell's eBusiness solutions help organizations establish secure, personalized and profitable relationships over the Net with customers, partners and employees, while reducing management complexity and cost. Those solutions are built using reliable Net services software products, such as Novell® eDirectory, Novell OnDemand Services, Novell Portal Services, iChain and DirXML. According to Leon McCaskill, CEO with InfiNet, a premier systems integrator and ASP based in Dallas, Texas, "Novell is solving real eBusiness problems, the kind of challenges InfiNet and our customers are facing today. For years Novell has delivered the most stable, flexible networking products, and now they've taken that expertise over the firewall to get internal networks and the Internet working together in a meaningful and profitable way."

"While Novell's Net services software has earned a number of industry accolades, the 'Best New Software' award from Cyber XChange is especially meaningful, because it demonstrates the value that solution providers and Web integrators see in Novell's eBusiness solutions," said Mark Taylor, vice president of channel sales for Novell. "No longer is Novell only associated with the deployment and management of internal networks. Today we're bringing all types of networks together as one Net to accelerate the eBusiness transformations of customers. Clearly, solution providers and Web integrators recognize that approach as a solid business opportunity in today's economy."
