Novell has launched its Springboard ISV Programme to help EMEA partners and ISVs profit from the Linux market.
The programme will educate and build awareness of Linux so that partners are positioned to take advantage of the new revenue opportunities from potential growth of Linux, Novell has claimed.
ISVs and partners will get six months free Silver level subscription to the Novell ISV partner programme, a free Novell Linux training self-study kit, automatic entitlement to place their products in the Novell online partner guide, access to developer support and access to porting and migration white papers and tools.
Johan Rosius, vice-president for alliances at Novell EMEA, said: “Ensuring that ISVs and partners in EMEA are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to respond to their customers’ Linux requirements is critical if they are to take advantage of the enormous opportunity Linux presents.
"This programme will provide them with the support they need to increase their margins from Linux-related activities,” said Rosius.
