Novell Zenworks 10 vs MS System Center Essentials 2007
Posted on 2009-12-24
We are currently a Novell house but we are moving away from Novell to all Windows in March. We are currently using Novell Zenworks 10, but the system was installed incorrectly and we will have to install it fresh when we virtualize in February. Our maintenance is due at the end of January on the Zen so before we pay our maintenance renewal, we figured we would look at other options.
The MS System Center Essentials is less then half the price per year of Zenworks. Now I know we will have to also get a remote admin solution, but adding that will still make the price half of Zenworks.
Does anyone have any experience with either comparing Zenworks vs. MS System Center Essentials or just experience with SCE?
