Novell today unveiled new products, partnerships and programs for open source and identity-driven solutions to thousands of customers and partners at its annual BrainShare Europe conference. Reflecting strong market interest in Novell's offerings, this year's BrainShare Europe is the largest in the history of the event. BrainShare Europe marks another step forward in Novell's support for the open source movement, with initiatives to expand the Linux ecosystem, further remove barriers to Linux adoption in the enterprise, and deliver tools to manage and secure Linux environments.
Novell is also using BrainShare Europe to showcase identity-driven solutions, a powerful combination of technologies around identity and services-oriented architectures that will transform the way identities function in an organization. Novell's identity-driven solutions are designed to adapt to the way a business functions, helping secure and manage not just users, but devices, servers, desktops, data and applications.
“BrainShare Europe reflects a coming together of Novell's two strongest competencies, platforms and identity,” said Jack Messman, chairman and CEO of Novell. “Novell is the leader in Linux and identity. We will continue to expand our leadership in both of these categories. And we will use that position to offer organizations more choices, more flexibility and more business value than ever before.”
Novell will be delivering hundreds of technical and business sessions, keynotes and demonstrations in support of its open source and identity-driven strategy at BrainShare Europe. Reflecting strong partner support, top-tier sponsors of the event include HP, IBM, Oracle, Teamware and Gwava, with an additional 26 partners, including Dell and Fujistu Siemens, sponsoring at other levels.
