Novell to cut 15 per cent of EMEA jobs

Novell this morning confirmed plans to cut 15 per cent of staff in its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations.

The networking firm said in a prepared statement that the reduction was in line with worldwide trimming of operating expenses because of lower than expected sales.

In April, Novell announced a new management team for the EMEA region headed up by Roland Richter.

EMEA executives of the firm were unavailable for comment.
