Novell, Dimdim Eye New Conferencing Solution

By Hans Lewis, TMCnet Contributor

Dimdim recently announced that it is working with Novell (News - Alert) to power a new Novell Conferencing solution.

The new product is expected to enhance collaboration solutions from Novell – a company that helps users conduct virtual meetings, demos and Webinars all using a standard Web browser – and offers integrations with other products, such as Novell GroupWise, for seamless collaboration. Dimdim is a provider of next-gen collaboration solutions that mold into existing business processes.

According to Wendy Steinle, director of Solutions and Product Marketing for End-User Computing at Novell Web conferencing is an important component of the company’s collaboration portfolio.

“Enterprises today are looking for Web meeting solutions that can meet the demands of today’s around-the-clock and around-the-globe business environment,” Steinle said. “Dimdim’s technology provides our customers with the simple, cost-effective and full-featured Web conferencing solution they need to get their business done.”

DD Ganguly (News - Alert), CEO of Dimdim said that his company helps Novell develop and roll out its next generation conferencing solution by providing a Web conferencing platform that is highly open, scalable and customizable.

“The selection of Dimdim for the Novell Conferencing product validates our continued commitment to providing our partners and customers with a simple, intuitive and comprehensive approach to Web conferencing and collaboration that meets the needs of enterprises, educational institutions, government agencies and small businesses,” he said.

Following an extensive review of conferencing providers and their technology, Novell selected Dimdim because of its sophisticated next-gen technology that places the user experience first. Unlike other conferencing solutions, Dimdim is able to provide a rich, multimedia experience in standard browsers without requiring users to download and install additional end-user software. Dimdim supports a wide range of platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux desktops and provides open APIs for easy integration with other Novell products and third-party applications. Dimdim’s multi-tenant cloud-based SaaS (News - Alert) platform ensures scalability to meet any enterprise need.

Recently, Dimdim enhanced its service with the release of Dimdim 5.5.  The new Dimdim 5.5 enables users to share their desktops with a single click using myScreen, provides personal meeting room URLs, customized user profile pages, and the fastest Web conferencing experience available. Dimdim 5.5 was the highest rated Web conferencing product in a recent review by PC Magazine, receiving 4 out of 5 stars.
