Software packaging & deployment
A second important niche market of AD IT is software packaging & deployment.
Using software package management allows to comfortably support and distribute software on a given operating system.
It entails the installation, update and the deletion of software in a packaged form.
Several tools can be used for this purpose, for instance, Install Shield or Wise for Windows Installer.
Specific adjustments to the standard package are possible as well. Different elements may be isolated, modified and implemented according to your requirements.
If the packet management detects that additional software is needed to assure a specific functionality, it will add the necessary program in the background.
A warning will be given, or the missing software will for instance be reloaded from an available repository and installed.
Our experts will take all the necessary steps to ensure a smooth silent software installation.
The scope of the software distribution provides our and your Service Delivery Team with the necessary mechanisms for optimization and follow-up of:
