Packaging (also known as software distribution) refers to the installation of software (operating systems and applications) on computers.
Software distribution is the critical process of installing operating system updates, security and essential applications such as anti-virus, browsers and email clients. Errors during software distribution can lead to massive downtime and the loss of many workstations.
Today, software distribution (packaging technology) can be fully automated. This very complex task requires dedicated software, such as our vendors Quest and Flexera Enterprise.
