Novell Japan to sell new system on software management.

TOKYO, July 30 Kyodo

Novell Japan Ltd., the Japan arm of U.S. software firm Novell Inc., said Wednesday it will put on the market on Aug. 6 a new computer system that will allow companies to centrally manage various software for each employee.

Under the new system, called Novell ZENworks 6 Suite, necessary software will be installed in an employee's personal computer automatically via the Internet or local area network.

For example, when an employee is transferred to the finance department from the human resources department, the system will automatically uninstall the existing human resources-related software and install accounting-related software into his or her PC, Novell Japan officials said.

This will spare a company's engineers the trouble of physically doing the uninstalling and installing work on each PC and allow the firm's system administrator to save time and cut costs of software holdings, the officials said.

The new system will also manage servers to save document files, e-mail and other PC settings created by employees, so they can immediately recover their PCs in time of system trouble.

The system is priced at 18,200 yen per employee, and Novell Japan aims for 3 billion yen in sales in the initial year, the officials said.
