Novell Vibe Cloud
Novell announced in July it would shut down its Web-hosted Vibe Cloud enterprise social collaboration suite, which bombed with customers although the market is hot for competing products. Novell's plan is to progressively integrate Vibe Cloud's features and functionality into its on-premise cousin Vibe On Prem over a period of 12 to 18 months (the consolidated offering is simply called Novell Vibe). Novell, acquired by The Attachmate Group in April, is in the midst of reinventing itself. Again.
