We covered on certain deployment methods to go with to suite your needs of your environment. In this post, we will go into slight detail of Provisioned Packages. This is a great option for small-to-medium companies. It can be considered for when end clients require simple configuration changes for compliance or if you need a quick setup for employees remote to the office.
To utilize these packages, you will need Windows Configuration Designer which comes with the Windows ADK. After that, it’s a simple interface of deciding what device type and specific settings to be set. They try to make it straightforward along with detailed documentation to follow if you’re looking for something specific to modify. Once the package is created, a simple click to the file will apply the settings on its own. It’s zero touch deployment without crazy setup. This process makes it easy for the IT technician in setting up and deploying. It’s also simple for the employee/end user to just run the package. They can be up and running in no time.
Quick deployment for many device types
As mentioned, it covers more than computers, it can apply to mobile devices, Microsoft products (Surface Hub, HoloLens, etc.) and devices going in kiosk mode. There is advanced custom option to go into more depth if the default options are not enough.
Many features/configurations to manipulate
The important part is what to configure. There is list of things that range from Local or Azure Active Directory joining, applying certificates, entering OS product keys, and much more. It saves the time of having a technician on site or be available to configure all the settings manually.
