Successful software deployments need good packages. Different installers, package types and technologies do not make things too easy. Is it exe, script, msi, appx, msix or just a bunch of files wrapped together with a duct tape - you must be sure when a package is ready for deployment.
Modern software lives in the cloud. Maybe you run software in a web browser. Maybe you need an additional plugin, add-on or a desktop client. Maybe the software is a web browser. Maybe the software is only available in the online Store. Configuration possibilities might be limited and vary greatly between applications. Additionally, managing software updates might be challenging - or you cannot manage them at all.
After this session, you will know how to effectively utilize different software package types and deployment technologies.
You will learn:
- Current and emerging packaging technologies and how to use them
- How to work with packages from the cloud (Microsoft Store, Office 365 Pro Plus, etc.)
- How to keep software updated and stay secure
