Jaffe has his hands on what may be the most underrated technology portfolio in the business. In fact, Novell’s robust technology portfolio positions the company very well for the cloud computing revolution. That portfolio includes state-of-the-art identity management and security offerings as well as a strong lineup of Linux offerings. Novell has fashioned those products into a cloud security service. Jaffe, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton to serve on the Advisory Committee for the Presidential Commission for Critical Infrastructure Protection, has also been driving Novell’s Pulse collaboration and social networking platform.
