Interviews

Maarten Koster, President, Novell Asia Pacific, talks to Kushal Shah about the different strategies adopted by Novell and the company’s partnership with Microsoft.

What is the basic strategy adopted by Novell?

As part of our overall strategy, we are an IT infrastructure company which basically focuses on cost, complexity and risks associated with the product. We believe in making things cheaper and make them security focused by reducing risks. Current IT environments are complex and heterogeneous and there is a need to reduce that complexity and we work towards that. We concentrate on securing and managing heterogeneous environments. It doesn’t matter whether the customer has Linux installed or Windows, Novell as a company mirrors the customer organisation and provide the service. Resources are limited, so Novell is concentrating on encouraging our business partners to join with us and get involved in the process of crafting solutions.

Where is Novell positioned in the market?
