Novell Inc and its planned WordPerfect Corp acquisition hope to conquer the enterprise messaging market by combining elements of NetWare 4.x, AppWare, the Global Message Handling System and WordPerfect Office to form the Open Messaging Environment. They intend to do this in three ways. First, by strengthening Global Message Handling System’s weak points by adding such WordPerfect Office features as message storage and a diary. Second, by integrating messaging and enterprise NetWare 4.X directory and administration services more tightly. Third, by providing open application programming interfaces and AppWare development tools to make it easier for existing messaging front-ends and third party applications to hook into NetWare messaging and other services. Novell’s aim is to support competitors’ messaging application programming interfaces so that users can move to the new Open Message Environment without throwing away the technology that they already have in place.
