<company, networking> A software development company
specialising in networking and workgroup applications.
Novell started life as Novell Data Systems, a computer
hardware business. The company was reorganised as Novell,
Inc., and began to focus almost entirely on networking in
1983, with the release of Novell Netware 1, a Network Operating System for IBM PCs.
Novell Netware's success has left Novell in a dominant
position in the networking market. The product has evolved
and now supports many hardware and software platforms
together with WAN connectivity.
The company has diversified in recent years, with the
acquisition of several mainstream applications, including
Wordperfect and Quattro Pro. Other products include
UnixWare, AppWare, Personal NetWare, Groupwise and
Novell Dos 7.
