Microsoft Windows – Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps: ZTI and SCCM

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Microsoft offers different deployment tools to deploy Windows devices and applications across a network infrastructure. This includes using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit in conjunction with System Center Configuration Manager to perform Zero-Touch Installations. Zero-Touch Installations enable deployment administrators to deploy Windows 8.1 over a network with no interaction once the task sequences are created that contain all the information required for the installation. This includes different packages that contain all the software required, including drivers, applications, user state, and operating system files. The course demonstrates performing ZTI using MDT and System Center Configuration Manager. This course is one in a series of Skillsoft courses to help prepare for the 70-695 Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps certification exam.

Target Audience

IT professionals who deploy, manage, and maintain client computers, devices, and applications in a network infrastructure
