Altiris Vs Landesk? experience of either? Upgrading from SLD

Hi... We're a small university and currently have Symantec Livestate Delivery (Formally CCM). As it's end of life we're looking at other deployment solutions.

Landesk have come in and done a proof of concept which looks quite good, but Symantec are pushing Altiris (I'm trying set up the trialware as they won't come in)

Anyone evaluated either of the two?

Altiris is likely to end up being cheaper, any thoughts on these?

Have a look at the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT 2008 or the 2010 Beta) for lite touch deployments (it's free).

If you want zero touch deployments, application management and inventory etc, Altiris and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager are good options. They cost around the same from a per machine client license, and you may be covered for SCCM client licensing under your Microsoft Licensing Agreement.

Altiris is a good product, as is SCCM (they both have pros and cons). The only thing we have ever done with Landesk is remove it.

I have experience in both Landesk and Altiris, currently Symantec Technical Specialist on all the Altiris Solutions.

I prefer Altiris, SCCM is good, but still believe Altiris is the better systems management software.

Can mail me if you need any questions answered on Altiris!
