MOD 20695: Deploying Windows Desktops and Enterprise Applications

Description

During this five-day course students is an introduction to how to assess operating system and application deployment options, determine the most appropriate deployment strategy, and then implement a deployment solution for Windows devices and apps that meet your environment’s needs. Some of the solutions that this course entails include operating system deployment scenarios ranging from high-touch solutions to zero-touch solutions. Also included discusses the technologies that you use to implement these solutions, including the MDT and Configuration Manager.

Typical students of this course are IT professionals who deploy, manage and maintain PCs, devices, and apps across a medium, large, and enterprise organizations. Usually, students that attend this course have a desktop-support background and have worked as Enterprise Desktop Administrators. Most of the students use or intends to use Configuration Manager to manage and deploy PCs, devices, and enterprise applications. Enterprise Desktop Administrators also may use several tools, including the Windows ADK and the MDT to support assessment, operating system, and application deployment tasks. Also, individuals who are interested in taking the MCSE exam 70-695: Deploying Windows Desktops and Enterprise Applications.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

  • Assess the network environment to support the operating system and application deployment tasks.
  • Identify the most appropriate operating system deployment strategy based upon organizational requirements.
  • Assess application compatibility issues and identify mitigation solutions to ensure that applications function successfully after an operating system deployment.
  • Describe and configure strategies to migrate user state during operating system deployments.
  • Determine the most appropriate image management strategy to support the operating system and application deployments.

By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp.

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.
