SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and ZENworks Asset Management win CODiE awards
Novell’s Linux and enterprise management services took home top honors for Best Open Source Solution and Best Asset Management Solution at the 2007 CODiE awards, the annual program led by the Software Industry and Information Association (SIIA) to recognize innovation in the software industry. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop from Novell won in the open source category, while Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management beat out the competition in the asset management category. The dual win reinforces both the breadth and depth of Novell’s offerings, giving customers confidence they’re getting the best foundation for enterprise Linux deployment and the enterprise management services they need to lower costs, reduce complexity and mitigate risk.
The Best Open Source Solution category, won by SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, honors the best software solution developed from source code in either the public domain or licensed according to an open source license, including operating systems, databases, applications and infrastructure. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, already a winner of “Best of Show” and “Best Desktop Solution” at LinuxWorld San Francisco in August 2006, is a key component of Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise desktop-to-data center strategy that makes managing and supporting Linux across the enterprise easier and more cost effective.
