Quality: Our focus within the Collaboration engineering team has been on making sure each successive release of a product is always improved quality. We have been able to do this with several release of 7.0.x…including Hot Patches, we have done this with GroupWise 8 and we know that 8.0.1 will be even better. Novell Teaming is not exception. We have set very aggressive goals, expanded our test cases and test matrices and are now measuring Total Containment Effectiveness. Not only has the Teaming engineers exceeded almost all of the quality metrics for 2.0, but they have kept pace with the defect backlog as well. High quality, improved performance, more usable and even more integrated with GroupWise – makes Teaming 2.0 a must have!
As is with all of Novell’s Collaboration products, Novell Teaming 2.0 has been rolled out internally to our Teaming Server for the last several months and the final build over the last few weeks. As with most social enterprise products, the more people use it and collaborate through this tool, the more accelerated the social interactions within teams and between departments, business units and geographies become. Ideas are generated, expanded, utilized and protected.

The Teaming product has now entered a more accelerated release schedule. The next release of Teaming is code named ‘Cortez’ and has a very aggressive schedule. The engineering team is already engaged in the next round of features, enhancements and integrations.
