GroupWise 8 will soon be shipping! The anticipation and excitement is increasing as Novell Marketing has begun some of their internal roll out activities on the Novell Campus in Provo, Utah. Similar activities are planned at the other Novell sites.

Just to name a few...

- Novell sponsored a GroupWise 8 on 8 Flag Football Tournament
- Novell sponsored a GroupWise 8 Fitness Challenge (Octathlon) for all employees
- GroupWise 8 Paintings were found on the grass around campus
- GroupWise 8 markings in the parking lot

Here are a few pictures...

  • In the last issue of eWeek (November 3, 2008) Jim Rapoza of eWeek labs tested 2 alternate solutions to Microsoft Exchange. They were Gornado Messaging Suite 15.01 and IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.02 Where was GroupWise in this review? Did Novell even reach out to magazines such as eWeek and others, letting them know that there is a new version of GroupWise 7.1, oops 8.0?

    Gornado Messaging? Who has heard of these guys? OK let's not see all the hands going up all at once... I know they were the brains behind NTMail back in the day. That said, GroupWise is far more of a household name than Gornado. This clearly shows that Novell is really not trying to go above and beyond their own customer base and their Marketing department (or lack there of) is not even aware of publications doing tests on competitive Email products.

    Don't tell me that this was a surprise to everyone while you guys were playing flag football. My eWeek arrives wrapped in plastic with an extra advertisement piece in front of it from St. Bernard who was pushing their iPrism SPAM filtering appliance. So we know that this edition of eWeek was focused on complimentary or competitive products to Microsoft Exchange. Once again, Novell missed the boat... Best of luck with GroupWise 9.0 which will have 6 more features added to it, that no one cares about. Now let's get back to playing football and paint the campus lawn.
