A 10 year journey through 5 tools

With a growing number of computer imaging solutions to choose from, IT teams now have the ability to hand-pick a tool that meets the exact requirements of their modern computing environment. Decades ago, it was just Ghost. Now, most companies are adopting intelligent tools that have evolved with the growingly complicated Windows OS and device ecosystem. The goal is to streamline tedious IT tasks, increase business productivity, and maintain flexibility to manage today’s end users. And now that most devices are internet connected, there are more ways for IT to ensure that end users have the hardware and software they need to be productive.

For one organization, their journey over the last 10 years has included five different computer imaging solutions: Symantec Ghost, Altiris, WDS, SCCM, and SmartDeploy. Kim Leseberg and Mitch Mecham have finally uncovered a solution that “just works” and delivers the IT control they need with the reliability that allows them to maintain over 1,800 devices for their users.
