One of the truly unique (and cool) features of the Omni Technology solution is that your help-desk operators and junior administrators no longer need access to NWAdmin or ConsoleOne to carry out tier-one user management tasks.

The Omni Technology solution also saves a full audit trail of who made what changes, when and to which accounts in addition to recording other key bits of trivia about who's doing what to your network.

Novell Cool Solutions (corporate web communities) are produced by WebWise Solutions.
