How To Choose A Packaging Solution

iWqBbQ.jpegApplication packaging is defined here as the creation of a deployment package. This could mean repackaging a vendor provided setup in order to create a customized silent deployment. However, it could also mean wrapping a package in a virtual layer for distribution purposes. One thing all application packaging products (and application packaging features) provide, is a means to create a deployment package intended for internal corporate distribution. Most packaging projects are centered around the deployment of new systems or operating systems. However, depending on the organization, packaging could be something that takes several months to complete, or it can be an ongoing task as new and updated applications may be regularly required.

Some vendors will try to differentiate and put their own spin on certain features to stand out. Other vendors may offer the bare minimum to address the need. Therefore, it is clearly not enough to “check the box” when it comes to making your product selection. However, it is a great exercise to consider the features and functions you really care about so you can focus on those and avoid being distracted by capabilities you don’t care about. Once the tools you should consider have been paired down to just a couple products based on features, ease of use, support, cost, etc. then will be the time to compare who does a better job when it comes to the aspects of the solution that really matter to you.
