After 24 years, change is inevitable.


As a Platinum Novell partner, the ALI team has been involved with supporting customers on the GroupWise email platform since the infancy of GroupWise version 4.0.

This platform has seen great growth, competitive struggles and innovative designs over the years. It has been up and down – but many in the GroupWise community have remained steadfastly by its side. Leading, then dragging; pushing and pulling, and always championing the cause for a stable email platform not dependent on that “other” operating system.

We have enjoyed the good years and the struggles with the product, we have had customers migrate away, many with mixed feelings and others returning a few years later because of the ease of management and stability of the product. We continue to upgrade customers and many are currently enjoying the fresh GroupWise 2014 release and the increased mobility it provides – keeping users available and connected.    

One consistent face for GroupWise and the force behind the most recent release is Dean Lythgoe, who has announced his upcoming retirement after 24 years with WordPerfect/Novell/Attachmate – read more at:  

In today’s rapid pace world and technological job shifting Dean’s tenure is an amazing feat, and one worthy of mentioning.

We tip our hat to you Mr. GroupWise - and wish you all the best. We have enjoyed our association with you and look forward to the future with your new team.

All the best!

The entire team at Advanced Logic Industries
