Overview

Get expert instruction and hands-on practice deploying personal computers (PCs), devices, and applications by using enterprise-level deployment tools and technologies in this five-day Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps training class. This course is for experienced Enterprise Desktop Support technicians who work in a Microsoft Active Directory domain environment that has managed access to the Internet, and who want to expand their role to an enterprise PC and device-management role. This course focuses on operating system and application deployment. In this course, you will learn the skills that you need to assess, determine, and implement the optimal deployment strategy for Windows devices, desktops, and applications. You will learn how to evaluate application compatibility issues by using the Application Compatibility Toolkit and how to migrate user states by using the User State Migration Tool (USMT). Additionally, you will learn how to prepare for deployment by using the Windows Assessment and Deployment Toolkit, and how to support Windows deployment strategies by installing and configuring the Windows Deployment Services (Windows DS) server role. You will have an opportunity to compare a lite-touch deployment by using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) with a zero-touch deployment by using Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. Furthermore, you will learn how to support operating-system deployment procedures by integrating the MDT with Configuration Manager. Finally, you will learn how to customize and deploy Microsoft Office 2013 to an enterprise network environment. This course prepares certification candidates for Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) Exam 70-695: Deploying Enterprise Apps and Devices. As part of the learning experience, you will perform hands-on exercises in a virtual lab environment. NOTE: This course is based on Windows 8.1 Enterprise Edition, and Windows Server 2012 R2 provides domain services.

This course is intended for IT professionals who deploy, manage, and maintain PCs, devices, and apps across medium/large/enterprise organizations, and for individuals who are interested in taking exam 70-695.
