Mixed IT environments are a reality for all organizations, which means our customers depend on our ecosystem of partners to reduce cost, complexity and risk. A great example of our partnership in action is highlighted in this SAP Insider article:
Let's say an employee is changing roles from an accounting clerk to an accounting manager. For her new role, the accounting manager must have access to a new set of resources. For this, her organization needs to provide and track access, and instantly identify and provide alerts about any policy violations, such as gaining access to both the accounts payable and receivable systems. Properly setting up the accounting manager requires a strategic layering of technology, such as SAP BusinessObjects Access Control and the Novell Compliance Management Platform extension for SAP environments. This pairing helps companies ensure that business policies will be consistently enforced and monitored across SAP and non-SAP applications throughout the organization.
As John Dragoon appropriately says in this post, "Making IT work as one is who we are, what we do and it embodies the core values that we provide to our customers."

Today we launched our revamped and renamed Novell News blog.
Our old Open PR blog was originally conceived as a way to give voice to Novell's views on open source software, Linux, and our mixed-source business model. Over time, the blog has become a much stronger information source for all of Novell, and increasingly a primary vehicle for breaking news. Hence, we've rechristened the blog to reflect its news agenda, and we've also given it greater prominence on our corporate website.
We've also made it much easier for more people inside Novell to contribute. In addition to PR posts, the Novell News blog will repost from the blogs of our CTO Jeff Jaffe and our CMO John Dragoon, as well as other company blogs. We're very fortunate to have many world-renowned industry experts and thought-leaders on staff. Expect to hear many more voices on this blog.
