We often find ourselves confused and lost in this trendy innovative computing world. We use new words, technologies and “innovation” to make computing life much more difficult than it has to be. This was my thought when I started a set of blog posts simply describing new computing trends and technologies. Here is another technology that I would like to simplify – Deployment.
Deployment in terms of software means provisioning operating systems, application software or necessary data to multiple computers, often many at one time. IT organizations all over the world purchase software deployment solutions to automate mass computer provisioning. This becomes especially important when many new hires join the company on the same day, time for global corporate hardware refresh or computer training labs have to be quickly prepared for a new class.
