Description

Getting SCCM clients installed on systems begins the process of gathering hardware and software information, but it's actually doing things with those clients that's inarguably where SCCM's value lies. And yet while you're surely familiar with the traditional Next, Next, Finish for EXE- and MSI-based installations, you might be surprised to discover just how many application install types Configuration Manager supports. In this fourth course out of seven, you'll begin by exploring the packaging and sometimes repackaging process for software, diving deep into several different approaches for "silencing" software in preparation for SCCM deployment. Next, with a quiver of new software packages then prepared, you'll explore the deployment of EXE and MSI installs that are likely to be your most-common use case. They are, however, not the only application types that SCCM can deploy. Then, you'll discover deploying App-V virtual applications as well as Microsoft Store and Microsoft Store for Business apps. By the end of this course, you'll see the not-terribly-difficult steps necessary to customize and deploy Office 365.

Course Overview
(Music) Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the fourth course in my learning path of the configuration and everyday use of System Center Configuration Manager Current Branch and Microsoft Intune. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building, managing, and helping others with SCCM since its earliest days as SMS version 1. 2. Getting SSCM clients installed on systems begins the process of gathering hardware and software information, but it's actually doing things with those clients that's inarguably where SCCM's value most lies. And yet while you're surely familiar with the traditional Next, Next, Finish for EXE and MSI-based installations, you might be surprised to discover just how many application install types that Configuration Manager can support. In this fourth course out of seven, we'll begin by exploring the packaging and sometimes repackaging process for software, diving deep into several different approaches for silencing software in preparation for SCCM deployment. With a quiver of new software packages then prepared, we'll explore the deployment of EXE and MSI installs that are likely to be your most common use case. They're, however, not the only application types that SCCM can deploy. We'll also explore deploying App-V virtual applications, as well as Microsoft Store and Microsoft Store for Business apps. And by the end of this course, you'll see the not terribly difficult steps necessary to customize and deploy Office 365. If you've just been tasked with building a new Configuration 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 you deploy and maintain operating systems, support internet-based clients and on-premises MDM, and support Microsoft Intune and co-management. Let's get started.
