We're just beginning our migration from NS6 to NS7. These videos are a wonderful resource to show how the menu system has changed and where to find things now, thank you !

The thing I love about this software is the new Software Catalog feature.  Gone are the days of troubleshooting problematic installations on computers and messy tracking of different software installations on different systems.  Client/server management has become such a breeze!

I have to say, this video sure is long. I think it has to be because there is a lot to explain about the features of the Software Management Solution. For people who want to know more about how to black list unapproved software or discover software, they have to make time to watch this video.
