Overview/Description
Microsoft provides many different deployment strategies for deploying Windows devices and applications. The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit provides faster deployment times using standardized desktop and server images to client machines within a network. MDT provides task sequences to capture, build, and deploy images throughout a network by performing lite-touch installations. LTI provides consistent settings across network computers, easier deployment by handling driver, application, and update installations, and streamlines maintenance tasks. This course demonstrates how to plan for and use MDT to perform LTI to deploy Windows 8.1 to client machines in a network. It also discusses other types of deployment strategies and how to integrate MDT with WDS for further customization of deployments. This course is one in a series of Skillsoft courses to help prepare for the 70-695 Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps certification exam.

Target Audience
IT professionals who deploy, manage, and maintain client computers, devices, and applications in a network infrastructure
