SCCM Expert Enables Self Service Windows OS Deployment and Migration

SCCM Self Service extends ConfigMgr2007 to provide end users, help desk staff and administrators the ability to shop for operating systems and applications on demand.

Berwyn, IL, April 22, 2010 --( SCCM Expert’s Self Service, well known for its ability to distribute software on-demand, now enables self service Windows OS deployment and migration. SCCM Self Service with Microsoft’s SCCM 2007 OSD/MDT reduces the cost and effort of OS and application deployment, especially reducing post migration support.

SCCM Self Service, a proven web-based software provisioning solution, automates the software request, approval, license verification and delivery process for the entire enterprise. End-users shop for software on-demand and get delivery in 10 minutes. Self Service now enables IT support staff to carry out OS deployments easily and to get the right applications back on the right desktops after migration.

Stefan Henseler, System Engineer Redtoo commented “At Kantonsspital Baden AG, we used SCCM Self Service to facilitate migration from Windows 2000 to XP. We enabled the IT-Support team to deploy software without any SCCM knowledge. 250 of the proposed 1000 clients have been successfully deployed.”

Along with increasing end-user satisfaction and administrator productivity, SCCM Self Service provides quick ROI through license reclamation and re-use. “One of our reference customers, an equipment manufacturing company with 50,000 employees, observed a 6X ROI within 9 months, by reclaiming and repurposing unused licenses," said John Juris, President, SCCM Expert.

Mentionable new features in SCCM Self Service include:
1. Deployment to ConfigMgr collections
2. Requesting and provisioning security groups
3. Integration with 3rd party applications for inventory and purchase management

Fyrsoft, impressed by Self Service’s provisioning capabilities, enrolled in the SCCM Self Service reseller program. "Enabling end users to self service desktop applications while simultaneously reclaiming unused licenses greatly reduces the cost per desktop for any business." said Todd Hemsell, an SCCM practice lead with FyrSoft. "Self Service lets SCCM administrators focus energies on maintaining the SCCM environment and adding value to the business."
