We have some significant projects underway for our GroupWise customers in 2012, so I thought it may be interesting to highlight a few of them as we approach the end of 2011.
Coexistence Manager for GroupWise - GroupWise 7 is coming! GroupWise 7 is coming! Since we released CMG 1.0 in June, the most common request has been support for GroupWise 7. Unfortunately, some of the functionality leveraged by the original release was introduced by Novell in GroupWise 8. As a result, the shipping version is only able to support GroupWise 8.x. We have been working on a version of CMG for GroupWise 7 and it will be available in the first half of 2012. Why so long? Supporting free/busy with GroupWise 7 actually requires a completely different architecture, so it has been a significant undertaking. However, we have proven the new architecture and finalized the design, so support for GroupWise 7 is coming soon to a collaborative environment near you.
GroupWise Migrator for Exchange - GME 4.0 will be generally available in early January and is a significant release. Some of the highlights include:
We also have two additional major projects in the works for GroupWise migrations:
I am very excited about the plans for 2012. These enhancements will provide significant value for organizations migrating from GroupWise next year and in the future.
