Novell Pulse is an enterprise-focused collaboration tool, built using Google Wave Federation Protocol, which allows collaboration between Novell Pulse users as well as anyone using another wave service, such as Google Wave. Novell Pulse was demonstrated (see video embedded below) at the Novell's BrainShare conference. “We're working on Google Wave Federation Protocol based on open source principles to provide users a choice of different wave providers. The protocol is flexible enough that different products can include different features, but still work together, letting wave providers make independent design decisions and even build for a specific group of users. Novell Pulse includes a feature for authenticating against enterprise account management systems, and Google Wave has per-wave participant suggestion built in,” says Dan Peterson.
