Novell Corporation spans the globe — it's one of the world's leading creators of net services software, used to power all types of networks. With offices spread out worldwide, the web isn't just a convenience — it's a necessity, a vital tool which enables Novell to fully coordinate its development efforts.
Web Content Architect Kevin Millecam is in the thick of Novell's web activity. 'Our group manages the web needs for all of Novell's 4,600 employees and their respective departments,' says Kevin. A big part of Kevin's job is ensuring that everyone in every department knows what needs to be done when, what the status is at any given moment on any given project — and the more the company has grown, the more complicated that task has become. 'It didn't take us long to realize that tracking all the requests for updates, changes, new pages, and promotions couldn't be tracked on a whiteboard,' he notes. 'Since we have team members in different cities around the world, we needed a distributed system that could be easily accessed and updated.'
