Novell is now on the lookout for more partners to work on-site at customer locations to help out with product maintenance and optimization. Opportunities with Novell are also especially strong for VARs with interest and abilities in Linux/Windows integration, security and identity management, and customization of thin client environments, various officials said at BrainShare.

O'Keefe listed current product support priorities that include ID and security management, along with Novell's new Open Enterprise Server (OES) product, Zenworks resource management, and workgroup collaboration.
