Description

At exactly the midpoint of this learning path, we have completed the steps necessary to build both an Intune and MECM environment, including their integration together. The second half of this learning path turns its attentions to actually using this environment. It begins with this course, which explores the tactics and techniques in software packaging -- all of which are needed to be successful in deploying software to devices via either half of Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

In this eighth course out of sixteen, Microsoft Endpoint Manager: Package Software for Deployment with MECM and Intune, you'll begin with an introduction to the art of software packaging. Today's software delivery mechanisms for Microsoft applications recognize a half-dozen major categories of application installations. This course's first module introduces you to the high-level best practices for addressing each. Next and finally, once you understand the high level tactics, you'll dig into the click-by-click steps needed to package and repackage each major category using tools that are freely available.

Course Overview
Hey. This is Greg Shields, and you've found the eighth course in my learning path on the implementation and everyday use of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, including configuration manager or MECM and Microsoft Intune. I am Principal Author Evangelist here, at Pluralsight, and I've been working with MECM since way back in the days of SMS 1.2. We're at exactly the midpoint of this learning path. We have completed now the steps necessary to build both an Intune and MECM environment, including their integration together. The second half of this learning path turns its attentions to actually using this environment. It begins with this course, which explores the tactics and techniques and software packaging, all of which are needed to be successful in deploying software to devices via either half of Microsoft Endpoint Manager. In this 8th course out of 16, you'll begin with an introduction to the art of software packaging. Today's software delivery mechanisms for Microsoft applications recognize a half dozen major categories of application installations. This course's first module introduces you to the high‑level best practices for addressing each. Next and finally, once you understand the high‑level tactics, you'll dig into the click‑by‑click steps necessary to package and repackage each major category using tools that are freely available. If you've just been tasked with implementing and/or managing a Microsoft Endpoint Manager environment, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we explore all the major areas of endpoint configuration that you get with a fully realized Microsoft Endpoint Manager solution. Let's get started.
