SmartDeploy to Host Webcast on Hidden Costs Associated with Windows Deployment

SmartDeploy, a leader in IT management solutions, software and services, today announced its upcoming webcast scheduled for tomorrow, June 19 at 1:00 p.m. EDT titled “The Hidden Cost of a Free Tool: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.” Join SmartDeploy CEO Aaron Suzuki and his team of deployment experts to discuss the hidden costs associated with the free tool, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), and how to more efficiently handle Windows deployment projects.

In some scenarios, free tools can be a low-risk way to test a new approach within your environment. However, free tools can be time consuming to setup and learn, and may have capability limitations based on your organizational requirements. Over time, there is a loss of productivity from increased troubleshooting time, training needs and excessive time required to complete a task. The result is that the free toolset exacts a higher total cost than a commercial software alternative. Most IT departments are looking to increase efficiency and achieve more with a smaller team and limited IT budget. Investing in a simple to use, efficient and flexible deployment solution allows technicians to complete day-to-day tasks faster and more reliably, compared to relying on free tools such as MDT.

In this webcast attendees will:

  • Learn how to more efficiently implement MDT
  • Hear how imaging and driver management is handled with MDT
  • Receive a copy of PassMark’s Windows Imaging and Deployment Software Comparison Report
  • Learn how to get a pair of free Skullcandy INK’D ear buds

“As an IT professional, the appeal of free tools is undeniable,” said Suzuki. “There is no need to wait for budget approval and there are no hard costs involved. However, the soft costs for these tools can quickly add up, resulting in spending more time and money than you would have on commercial software. Moreover, when something goes wrong you have no professional recourse for help. You are left on your own to work within forums and other community resources. For many professional IT departments, this approach is simply not acceptable.”

If you are currently using MDT, another commercial or open-source tool, or if you are simply looking for a more efficient solution for Windows imaging and deployment, don’t miss this live 30-minute webcast.
