ZENworks Desktop Management reduces the total cost of ownership of the configuration, deployment, updating, healing and migration of desktops using unique Policy-Driven Automation.
ZENworks Patch Management is a powerful, automated patch management solution.
With full support for patches for Net Ware, Microsoft Windows*, Solaris*, HP-UX*, AIX* and Macintosh* administrators can quickly determine what patches are right for their organization and automatically apply them across their enterprise.
Kevin Hopton, a corporate systems engineer at Novell, first conceived of the software which later became NAL (Novell Application Launcher) in 1993.
Hopton produced a second version, written in Delphi and with UI assistance from Eric Burkholder.These automated and intelligent policies allow administrators to provide centralized control across the lifecycle of Linux systems for desktop lockdown, imaging, remote management, inventory and software management.The result is a comprehensive Linux management solution that eliminates IT effort by dramatically reducing the required overhead needed to manage Linux systems.The network-administrator community responded favorably to NAL, and its use and adoption quickly grew.From this point forward, ZENworks became one of the most profitable products for Novell.
