Large scale enterprise deployments tend to lead to the use of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, combined with in-house developed processes for managing deployments. Running Windows deployments using these tools demands a great deal of time and technical expertise.
By contrast, OneDeploy is the product of 15 years of development and refinement. It simplifies complex processes and because no reference machines need to be built upfront, we can enable you to deploy customised Windows environments in hours, not days or weeks.
Some licenses for this software may come ‘free’ with Enterprise Agreements however the reality is there is a steep learning curve associated with usage of these tools to set up a Windows deployment. This perhaps explains why we see so many companies that have tried SCCM and seen Windows deployment projects running over-time and sucking up too many IT resources.
The complexity of running deployments projects using these tools often creates a need for additional training in your team. The project lengthens and training costs rise as your engineers have to become developers to improve systems with a view to streamlining planned deployments. Project delays become inevitable.
To side-step these delays and costs, many organisations bring in Windows deployment consultants. They may be able to work with you to define a process and complete deployments. However, because these consultants will naturally want to set up a ‘clean’ deployment solution from scratch, organisations often find themselves paying high set-up and development fees. These consultants are naturally paid on results i.e. completing a Windows deployment project successfully. However, they are not paid to help you find efficiencies in order to cut costs of future deployments. They rarely help you streamline your deployment processes for future deployments. As a result, no significant deployment efficiencies are ‘banked’ for future deployments and there tends to be little skills transfer to your team.
By contrast, if you come to OneDeploy you are tapping into a mature product with over 15 years of development baked into it. Adoption is therefore much quicker and your learning curve is much lower than competitor tools offer. If you require OneDeploy’s professional services team you can rely on the fact that our team is using this product to solve multiple hardware deployments every day, so there are no “How do I do this?” scenarios which risk costing you time and money hunting for a solution.
