A Simple Endpoint Management Experience
INTELLIGENT DESKTOP MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
One Golden Windows Image is the Key to Managing Thousands of Diverse Endpoints
Layered build process for Windows and application deployment
Build Each Layer on your IT Workstation
OS images, application software (Application Packs) and hardware drivers (Platform Packs) are stored logically and physically separate allowing a single golden Windows image to be deployed to any hardware model. Create your OS image containing the Windows operating system, patches, and settings that you choose. Choose the Platform Packs for the models you support and we’ll handle drivers from there. Application Packs can be installed as part of deployment or pulled from a network server or cloud storage once the machine has been imaged.
Logical Layers for Ultimate Control
SmartDeploy provides true single image management of one centralized Windows golden image that can be deployed to any PC in your organization, regardless of manufacturer or model. SmartDeploy accomplishes this by separating driver management, application deployment, and user files into separate driver layers, application layers, and user data layers.
Create deployment media of your choice
Any Device, Any Way
Your Windows deployment or software deployment packages can be delivered to any target device, regardless of hardware model, by following the same simple process. This process is extremely simple and often be completed by entry-level technicians. At deployment time, SmartDeploy automatically applies the OS image and Application Packs as well as the driver-specific information unique to your target device.
Monitor your devices and add, remove, or change any layer
Replace Any Layer, Any Time
The ability to decouple monolithic PC images into logically separate layers that can all be deployed, upgraded, and managed independently from each other provides the ability to do a Windows Migration by just replacing the OS layer; provision new hardware for a new hire by deploying the driver, OS, and application layers; replace the driver layer with a PC Refresh; or reimage just the OS layer in a PC Break-fix scenario. Centralized, single image management provides a modern and more efficient approach than distributed Windows deployment and application deployment tools.
Choose Application Packs from the Application Library
Download Pre-Built Application Packs
SmartDeploy’s application deployment feature utilizes an Application Library of popular applications that are packaged and ready to deploy as part of your application layer. For those applications where SmartDeploy is not able to distribute the software, we’ll help you create your own.
Simple and Fast Application Deployment
Unlike distributed software deployment tools, applications can be deployed, updated, and patched within the application layer, in the OS layer, or in both layers. To select the Application Pack you want to deploy in your application layer, navigate to the device or group of devices you want to deploy to in your Console, right-click and select the application(s) you want and click deploy.
DEPLOY USING CLOUD STORAGE PROVIDERS
Limited bandwidth or no VPN access? No problem.
Eliminate Connectivity Barriers
With SmartDeploy, you can leverage your Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or OneDrive for Business accounts as an image repository for deployment of Windows images, Application Packs , and Platform Packs. While cloud deployment enables customers to take advantage of storage they already have in place with these cloud storage providers, the major benefit is that end users do not have to be connected to the corporate network for IT to manage their endpoint.
SmartDeploy is different than most Windows deployment and software deployment tools in this regard. PCs can be anywhere — on or off the network in a local office, branch office, or home office, and connected through a wired or wireless connection. VPN connectivity is not required. Just like traditional Window deployment and software deployment tools, you can also use a network server as a distribution point as well as use DVDs or USB drives if needed.
USE WIZARDS TO SIMPLIFY IT MANAGEMENT
Use answer files to improve user experience
No Training Necessary
SmartDeploy’s step-by-step wizards, with built-in deployment best practices, allow technicians of any skill level to become proficient with nearly every aspect of the solution. Now, multiple people in IT can be quickly cross-trained to perform any computer imaging need such as Windows migrations, new hardware provisioning, and application deployment. Never again do vacations and training conferences need to be postponed or delayed because of coverage concerns.
From the end user perspective, answer file functionality, also wizard-driven, enables silent installation so that users do not have to be involved. Remote IT Automation further simplifies the user experience by executing scripts on remote PCs instead of requiring user involvement at the command prompt.
