In this blog, we’ve talked about Novell’s strategy to get back to basics. An important piece of that is coming home – moving our headquarters back to Provo in what’s known locally as “Utah Valley.” Home again, we’re stepping out, shaking hands and saying hello.
If you’re local, look for us at Utah Technology Council meetings and events, on the Pillar of the Valley billboard as you drive south on I15 or in nearly any business in Utah Valley by picking up the current issue of Utah Valley BusinessQ. In the magazine, Bob Flynn talks about Novell’s long history in Utah Valley’s software industry and the company’s formula for longevity. It’s all about finding and maintaining the right balance across trusted relationships with customers and partners, innovative and battle-tested technology and an uncompromising commitment to engineering excellence.
Novell employees are the real pillar behind our longevity and in the past eight months, Novell has opened over 70 local job opportunities — more than half of them technical — and is currently hiring in numerous departments. We know that our success depends on our ability to listen to our customers, take their feedback and work with them to develop innovative solutions to better their businesses.
We’re looking to Utah Valley to help us enter a new era where the people of our local community will once again play a pivotal role in the success of one of the world’s most long-lived and successful technology companies. With this in mind, we look forward to continuing to reengage with both the Utah Valley community and our loyal customers around the globe.
