The Hub Commentary_
The day has finally arrived to announce the closing of one chapter and the start of another. As my loyal followers know, we did belong to Novell, but we have remained true to keeping this site focused on best practices, insight, opinion and resources and not on the vendor technology specifically. Today I will go ahead and post this news as it is significant in the enterprise software market in general.
Those of us here are thrilled that the wait is over and are even more thrilled that what was once Data Center solutions (less SUSE Linux) will become part of NetIQ. We very much look forward to strength that the Security, NetIQ, PlateSpin, Cloud Manager, Operations Center, etc. solutions will bring to the market as a whole creating new options in what is a somewhat mature market.
Novell Operations Center 5.0 was due to announce and launch with a big splash yesterday, however, there was bigger news on the horizon. So many faithful followers must be scratching their heads as to why Michele and her BSM Jedi counterpart, Tobin, merely dropped two simple blogs on Novell for the Novell Operations Center 5.0 release. Today you understand. We’ll post additional content and press in the coming weeks, have no fear.
We are very excited about the release and look forward to sharing with the market in a bigger way in the coming weeks what is new. We are also thrilled that the release comes comes at a great time as the simplification of the solution enables us all under the NetIQ umbrella to hit the ground at full stride.
Check out our Cool Solutions blog on Novell.com to get a glimpse into the product release and we will have much more to come in the coming weeks as part of this bigger, very exciting announcement! We know business service management initiatives have become more of an imperative in aligning to the business and the complex infrastructure that agile technology has brought to bear on many IT organizations and we look forward to the next chapter of Operations Center!
