Review: ZENworks 7.0 Hones Reporting, Integration
The Novell Inc. ZENworks 7.0 suite of server, desktop and handheld management tools has improved remote control, system imaging, hardware and software inventory, and automated policy management capabilities. Considering ZENworks Suite 7.0's scope, it might just as easily be named "Godzilla" or "Swiss Army knife." Fortunately, tests at eWEEK Labs showed there is nothing frightening about the updated management platform, which was released last month. In fact, the new capabilities in ZENworks 7.0 have been added to the suite with considerable care, enabling Novell to avoid most of the pitfalls that could have dented this supersize management tool chest.
