“AppDeploy is about cultivating a unique community of IT professionals who have the same goals in mind—knowledge sharing and education.” said Bob Kelly, founder of AppDeploy and senior product manager at KACE. “The IT departments of today are plagued by the challenges associated with application and software deployment complexity. I addition, many of these IT departments are under-staffed and budget-constrained, highlighting the immediate value stemming from free training on how to correctly meet deployment challenges.”
“This video library is an excellent contribution not only for packaging guidance but also to show our staff who focus on application management the complexity, flexibility, and benefits of Windows Installer technology,” said Kim Bokholm, desktop management consultant at QBranch. “Being an expert in desktop management, Bob Kelly has provided a great resource over the years by offering IT administrators the tools to help each other and the platform to share best practices regarding the IT challenges we face every day.”
AppDeploy.com was acquired by KACE, the leading systems management appliance company, in 2007. This relationship has sparked the continuous development of AppDeploy’s online community, while integrating its extensive deployment knowledge base directly into the KACE KBOX™ family of management appliances in the form of an exclusive feature called “AppDeploy Live”.
