TechNet Webcast: Tools and Techniques for Managing a Windows Vista Desktop Deployment (Level 200)

Wednesday, May 03, 200611:30 AM12:30 PM Pacific Time

Kevin Remde, TechNet Presenter, Microsoft Corporation

Deploying desktops in a business environment is much like running a production line. Various elements, including operating system images, application packages, and user state migrators, are constructed as discrete components and then brought together at the end of the process to make a finished product. This webcast discusses the components and production lines that form a comprehensive PC deployment solution. Learn how the production line point of view provides a project management approach to deployment readiness as a supply chain. This presentation acts as an introduction to other webcasts in the Deployment Series that focus on specific areas such as computer imaging and user state migration.
