Novell Announces New E-Business Architecture Strategy

Novell kicked off its annual BrainShare user conference today by unveiling a new architecture that builds on the company's recently announced Net services strategy for running Web-based businesses. Dubbed Denim (Directory-Enabled Net Infrastructure Model), the new architecture focuses on a customer-centric framework for deploying directory-enabled products and services.

Novell is labeling Denim the "blueprint for the Net Economy." According to Novell chief operating officer Stewart Nelson, all Novell products will be mapped against it. The company says Denim is designed to serve three areas: Net management services, including network management, security, and policy management; Net content services, including publishing, storage, and delivery services; and Net portal services, including integration, identity, and knowledge services.

Novell's Net services strategy is to view all networks -- Internet, intranets, extranets, private and public -- as a single network, running on all leading operating systems, including Solaris, NT, NetWare, Windows 2000, and Linux.

Novell chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt stressed the high expectations that Novell has for its new architecture. "Eventually, there will be more users of Denim than Windows," he said.
