Novell unveiled a preview of Novell Pulse and announced that attendees of its annual Novell BrainShare conference will be the first to get accounts. Attendees will also be given five invitations to access the cloud-based collaboration platform when the preview is released. Novell Pulse is a real-time collaboration platform for the enterprise that combines real-time authoring, communication, and social messaging tools with robust security and management capabilities.
Novel Pulse combines granular, policy-driven controls with federation to enterprise identity and access management systems, helping enterprises retain flexibility and control while embracing social messaging and emerging collaboration paradigms. Pulse also provides an open collaboration framework that enables organizations to access third-party collaboration tools from one common interface.
Built to work alone or in concert with existing collaboration investments, Novell Pulse also uses the Google Wave Federation Protocol to allow seamless integration with other next-generation collaboration tools.
