0930 Setup Commander – Above & Beyond by Roel van Bueren
Setup Commander 2.0 uses an ‘as a service’ infrastructure to provide support for the setups you use. For your vendor setup we provide a ‘Configuration Wizard’ which is based on ‘best practices’ and a Repackaging Wizard to virtualize if needed. This is done intuitively and quickly. Wizards are updated daily based on customer and partner feedback. Not only the setup itself is properly configured, ‘best practices’ are brought in to prepare for traditional deployment using e.g. Microsoft ConfigMgr, RES Automation Manager, Quest Software SMA and Micro Focus ZENworks, but also for deployment using VDI and Application Layering solutions from Citrix, Unidesk and VMware. Additionally our ‘Setup Store’ offers the latest versions of the vendor setups you use, with a similar user experience to using App Stores in the mobile world. Learn how the Setup Store and ‘Configuration Wizards’ will save you hours and hours of (re)searching forums and packaging related websites. Learn about the upcoming Setup Commander Service Edition, bringing the Setup Store to your door ‘as a service’.
