United Bank, with offices in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC, has a mixed data center and uses most Novell products, including Novell Open Enterprise Server, Novell ZENworks® and Novell GroupWise. Computer Systems Analyst Willem Bagchus jumped at the op­portunity to join the bank as messaging and
collaboration specialist in 2010.

“United Bank had been a fully integrated Novell shop for many years,” Bagchus recalls.”Work­ing with an IT team full of senior ­level special­ists was a huge attraction for this job.”

His first task was upgrading the bank from GroupWise 7 to GroupWise 8. “I’ve com­pleted upgrades to GroupWise 8 so often it was a no ­brainer,” he says. “That was done in no time.”
