Novell launches new products for simpler e-business

By : |February 15, 2000 0

BANGALORE: Novell has launched four new products in the Internet space that
aims to break down barriers for simpler e-business. The new products are—
iChain, ZENworks for servers, ZENworks for networks and Novell eGuide — to
optimize and simplify the e-commerce process.

The theme underlying the four products is to "bring down the walls
between networks." Novell senior vice-president marketing Steve James said,
"Novell’s net services software eliminates traditional network boundaries
such as firewalls to help create one Net, a secure and efficient foundation for
conducting business inside, outside and between organizations." Said Mr
James, "We will be in the background as services have to be cross-platform
and universal in their delivery."

Novell has struck alliances with BroadVision, Compaq Computer, ePrise, IBM,
Intershop, PeopleSoft, Perot Systems and Whittman Hart. Novell’s new products
are built around the directory-based networking strategy. Novell has also
announced that it will be launching its consulting business to offer an
integrated solution to customers.

Out of the four products that Novell announced, iChain is a new software
which delivers secure intranet and extranet integration services. iChain allows
linking of business processes between multiple organizations and can deliver
internet-based services in a hosted environment.

ZENworks for servers and networks is an extension of Novell’s existing
ZENworks range of products. ZENworks for servers provides net management
services that simplify and centralize server management in a multi-server
environment.

ZENworks for networks is a software which helps companies in establishing
policies that automate the management of various network devices such as
routers, hubs and switches. The product can also offer quality control of such
network devices.

eGuide is an applications service that allows users in an organization a
one-click connection with people, places and other facilities across networks.
