Budgets are tight and roll-out resources may be even tighter, so a product has to deliver significant cost and productivity advantages to make the grade. Novell ZENworks 11 does just that. Featuring location awareness, power management capabilities, configuration and patch management for Linux and Windows devices, and the industry's first “single pane of glass” for lifecycle management and endpoint security, this is an upgrade that yields immediate dividends.
With Novell ZENworks Suite 7 and Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 reaching the end of general support in June of 2011, now is the time to see what the latest generation of ZENworks can do for you. The general release candidate is available today, with the shipping product coming in January of 2011.
