Although it looks quite simple on the outside, this program performs some complex operations on the Operating System as well as on the System Center Configuration Manager 2012 Environment behind it.
In order to migrate vendor preloaded Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 computers into a FDA validated environment, our customer needed a tool that was able to execute all the steps necessary with a minimum of user interactions.
The tool basically performs a fully automated installation of the SCCM 2012 Client Agent, hooks up to the SCCM 2012 environment, approves the new client, moves the client into a dedicated collection, gathers Tattoo, Installation and Branding options out of a preconfigured configuration file that is used for the customers standard OS installations and launches a task sequence that performs all actions necessary such as the Domain Join and the Installation of the Application Portfolio specified in the Clients Configuration File.
The SCCM Deployment Tool is an asp.net based website that allows the customer to pre-deploy physical as well as virtual computers.
Using an SCCM 2012 Task Sequence with MDT Integration, this Program can preconfigure the Configuration Records for Deployments in advance rather than using UDI or other "on deployment" utilities.
This allows to separate the deployment team tasks from the actual infrastructure tasks and reduces the configuration effort by an outstanding 90% through automation.
A simple command line utility that converts Bitmap Images into the .jpg format. It's free to the community and has been downloaded more than 250.000 times already!
As this tool can be controlled using arguments it makes it so easy to batch convert thousands of images within minutes! It could even be triggered by a task schedule to repeat the conversion for new images.
The Active Directory Picture Upload Tool was requested by a customer to make their HR department's life easier.
Whereas IT staff was required before, the HR department can now easily add, remove and exchange employee portraits to the Active Directory for further use in Microsoft SharePoint 2013, Microsoft Exchange and other products all by itself.
