I just wanted to mention that Novell has this course that covers how to use Novell ZENworks Asset Manager (ZAM). This is a course for people who actually do the asset management work. The ones who deal with keeping track of hardware and software licenses. It's not for the IT folks who install and configure ZAM and then walk away. That's why we call the course "Managing Assets with Novell ZENworks Asset Manager."
If you have the asset management responsibility in your enterprise and you're using or thinking of using Novell ZENworks Asset Manager, Novell is offering this course online from July 19 - 21.
The instructor, Bruce McDowell, has been around this product since it was introduced by Tally Systems and he knows how asset management is done. I asked him what an asset manager is going to learn about ZAM in this class. Here is what he said:
ZAM installs in minutes and starts to return useful data immediately. Imagine being able to recognize return-on-investment in weeks!
ZAM features world-class inventory, a 360-degree view of software usage and flexible license management. The class will have you up, running, and looking like a star in no time.
If you have a ZAM license but haven't implemented the product yet, Bruce would like to have you in the class so he can help you get over the first hurdles and start getting the value ZAM is designed to deliver. He points out:
In a world where software manufacturers look at audits as a revenue stream, and companies can expect to be audited about once a year, can any company afford not to be implementing software asset management?
The cost of the course is $1750 or (5) training credits. Please visit this link to register http://bit.ly/lxE9kj.
