Mikael plans to talk about his ImageFactory solution. In the world of deployment a reference image is where all begins, basically we take the ISO/WIM from the vendor, install it, tweak it, patch it and on the other side we now a have a customized reference image that is more suitable for our needs. This applies to both clients and servers. There are two ways of doing this, the correct way and the incorrect way. The correct way is repeatable and as automated as possible. Expect Demos and an interactive discussion, since Mikael don’t know how to use PowerPoint.
