Novell's close collaboration with SAP promotes seamless integration of the two company's products and offers comprehensive service and support. Together with various hardware manufacturers, SAP and Novell collaborate in the SAP Linux Lab to continually improve Linux and develop it further for commercial use.
Committed to Linux, and with a global presence and widely distributed partner networks, Novell and SAP can offer comprehensive guidance and support for implementation and operation. With complementary solutions, SAP and Novell form a dynamic duo that gives you leeway for innovation – absolutely essential in today's constantly changing markets.



Alliance Overview
Novell and SAP have joined forces to provide businesses of all types and sizes the most advanced integration technologies and identity-management solutions available. Advancing a shared commitment to the widespread adoption of Linux in the workplace, Novell and SAP have ported SAP applications to the industry-leading Linux enterprise operating system.
Novell SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server became the first Linux platform to be certified for SAP Business Suite applications and the adaptive computing infrastructure from SAP. Novell's eDirectory, the basis of the Novell Identity and Access Management Suite, was the first directory service to be certified for SAP NetWeaver Portal and all SAP NetWeaver components -- ensuring that all Novell Identity and Access Management Products can be seamlessly integrated into SAP environments.
SAP and Novell enjoy a global network of experts that covers all areas of support, from consulting to implementation and operation to maintenance. Novell is the only Linux distributor to offer round-the-clock support.
Key Customer Benefits
Novell Identity and Access Management Solutions bring about a quick return on investment (ROI) and a sustainable reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO). A study conducted by Novell Worldwide Services, Stanford University, and Hong Kong University shows that a company with 10,000 employees can save between 609,198.9€ and 0.99€ million annually.
The high performance of Novell solutions reduces hardware costs. Compared to proprietary Unix systems, the combination of SAP enterprise solutions and Novell SUSE LINUX affords tangible cost savings and improved performance.
Novell and SAP solutions also offer high security. Novell SUSE LINUX products feature an array of security functions. For instance, Novell SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 has attained the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+, the highest security and operating certification for Linux.
