We use ZENworks Configuration Management to manage more than 650 PCs spread across three locations within a Novell environment. Using ZENworks Control Center, we can provide our PCs with a base Windows 7 image and apply Windows and printerpolicies. We also manage more than 250 software bundles. Made with ZENworks Application Virtualization when possible (exam software from ’CITO’, Sketchup and Picasa, old versions of Office and CDs for arts-classes). In addition there are many MSI bundles available (Chrome, Java, Flash, Shockwave, Air, Silverlight etc.) ZENWorks combined with Setup Commander for ZENworks is indispensable for us.
“We’ve been using Setup Commander for ZENworks for almost five years now and it took some time to recognize its value. Especially now since we can purchase the software via ’SLBdiensten’, it has also become very attractive price-wise. On the question: ”Can we have Google Chrome on every PC in the near future”, I could say with certainty ”Yes, that will be ready tomorrow”. Thanks Setup Commander!”
