News from CeBIT



March 15, 2007 6:36 am





Novell just made an announcement regarding the next version of ZENworks here at CeBIT here in Hannover, Germany.

The first news – there are no more codenames. “Pulsar” has a real name: ZENworks Configuration Management

Also a great quote from a customer – Virgin Radio, part of Scottish Media Group – who is testing ZENworks Configuration Management as part of the beta:

“We installed ZENworks and were up and running in no time,” said David Jones, Head of Technology Services at Virgin Radio. “This elegant solution installs quickly and is easy to use. ZENworks Configuration Management simplifies desktop management, delivering the functionality and control that meet our user’s needs and work habits, while reducing the overall effort and cost of managing our desktops.”

I visited with Virgin Radio on Tuesday in London; they are a fantastic flagship customer. I’m sure you will be hearing more from them in the near future.

    I thought one of the key points of Pulsar, now ZEN Configuration Management, was “unify and integrate the product components and architectures”. But it appears ZEN Configuration Management is only for “management of Windows operating systems” (?). Please clarify.

  2. Windows today; Linux soon.

    Also Patch Management and Asset Management will be integrated in the next few months.

    Watch this space – and the BrainShare keynote.

  3. Thanks for the blog entry, Martin. I’ve returned the favour!
