Product Overview

AdminStudio provides enterprise IT teams, including the MSI packager, with the most advanced software packaging tools to efficiently prepare reliable application packages for deployment with a complete suite of automated MSI packaging, customization, testing and management reporting capabilities.

Features

You’re still struggling with your Windows 7 deployment and already you have to start thinking about Windows 8. Operating system migrations and routine software deployments are among the riskiest functions of IT. Deploying a poorly prepared or tested software package can crash mission-critical applications, slow productivity and send help desk costs soaring.

AdminStudio automates application preparation so that MSI packagers can prepare reliable MSI packages that deploy successfully with today’s most popular software deployment tools. The AdminStudio software packaging tools include a catalog that forms a central repository for storing applications, enabling testing to eliminate application conflicts. A management reporting dashboard provides a continuous view of readiness to streamline migration planning.
