We are all back from Brainshare now, what a busy week that was! I hope that everyone that attended enjoyed it, I know I did – the Rattlesnake and Rabbit Sausages were the highlight for me I don’t want to steal Jason Williams’ thunder here, so prod him to tell you how they are made.
The GW migration tool proved a very popular subject, both on the Migration and Installation depot and in the tutorial from our IS&T manager – in fact it was the second most popular session on the depot, behind virtualisation on XEN.
The other popular topic of conversation was the GroupWise Mobile Server (powered by Intellisync). We are all very excited about this in the GW team, it’s a huge value add to our customers and we are working very hard to get it out there, though there does seem to be a little confusion, both internally in Novell and externally, about who gets it. So, it is available to all GroupWise 7 customers if they pay maintenance or upgrade protection. We do plan to release an evaluation version publically so you can ‘try before you buy’. I would encourage anyone who either doesn’t currently have a mobile solution, or has issues with their current solution to at least give this a try. If you have Blackberries, or plan on rolling them out, then look here. With these 2 solutions we should be able to keep any device user happy.
