Desktop DNA Eases Transfers
Computer Associates' Unicenter Desktop DNA r11 is a handy way to transfer user PC information from one system to another.Computer Associates Unicenter Desktop DNA r11, released in January, is a handy way to transfer user PC information from one system to another. Ive used Unicenter Desktop DNA in the Labs to transfer personalized settingsincluding data files, e-mail address books, and preferences such as drive mappings and screen resolutionfrom one system to another. Desktop DNA helps me set up systems for Labs tests, but the products intended purpose is to make it cheap and easy to move users to new systems.
Although Ive often thought very little of desktop transition productsI prefer to store files on a central server rather than user systemsIm also in favor of reducing the time users need to fiddle with new systems.
