This comprehensive engagement helps you capitalize on your investment in SCCM and App Portal by incorporating operating system deployment and application migrations into your enterprise app store. The result is an automated, best practices approach that allows business users to select and schedule migrations quickly and conveniently from your online catalog. This approach accelerates migration, mitigates the impact of migration on users and on the network infrastructure, and eliminates hours of IT effort spent on manual migration tasks.

Operating System Deployment Acceleration Services engagements entail a brief requirements gathering workshop that helps in two important ways: First, it allows project teams to determine the breadth and scope of the overall effort required to build out operating system deployment capabilities and the deployment process. Second, it includes an assessment of the current SCCM infrastructure to ensure that customers have a solid operating system deployment foundation in place for an efficient Windows migration.
The workshop is followed by a thorough solution design phase, solution build out, and extensive solution validation and acceptance testing stages. Simultaneously, migration rollout planning and application role defining through use-case mapping are plotted out to complete the implementation of a highly scalable operating system rollout methodology. Moreover, consultants will help companies apply the robust capabilities of App Portal for creating operating system images and deploying them to target computers, thereby enabling role-based, bare-metal builds, re-imaging and replacement of computers using a convenient, self-service model.
Our consultants can customize this offering to address your unique business needs and timelines, enabling you to accelerate migration, mitigate the impact of migration on users and on the network infrastructure, and eliminate hours of IT effort spent on manual migration tasks.
