On November 13 we closed our acquisition of Managed Objects, a leader in the business service management market. The acquisition extends Novell’s strategy of making IT work as one in the data center by adding tools to provide a unified view of all information and workloads. IT and business managers get much needed visibility into how their information systems deliver business services across physical and virtual environments. Managers can then make informed decisions to ensure availability and quality-of-service while improving agility and lowering the total cost of data center management.
The Managed Objects products are very complementary to our existing management and virtualization capabilities. By adding the Managed Objects toolset to the Novell portfolio of data center solutions, we are unique in providing technology-agnostic and proven cross-platform solutions that span both the physical and virtual worlds – all in one unified view. Expect to hear more about our M.O. for Managed Objects soon
