Software Deployment Question
Worth Repackaging - Thoughts?
Looking for general opinions\views.
I have recently joined an organisation whose historical approach to application packaging is immature...... Basically they never authored MSIs and had a stab at App-V which they quickly backed out of in a political storm of misery.
As part of a domain migration we are looking to stand up a greenfield SCCM environment to continue co-management. I believe MSIx is at least 18 months from being usable so I'm weighing up the pros and cons and keen to hear views.
1. Spend the time\money discovering and packaging MSIs to a single standard
2. Spend the time\money discovering and sequencing the applications to a single standard
3. Rationalise the application stack (both products and versions) but retain the mix of installers (EXE, MSI, VBS, PS, CMD)
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
