70-695 – Prepare SCCM For OS Deployments: Understanding OS Deployment Using SCCM 2012 (part 1/6)

Microsoft offers different deployment tools to deploy Windows devices and applications across a network infrastructure. This includes using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit in conjunction with System Center Configuration Manager to perform Zero-Touch Installations. Zero-Touch Installations enable deployment administrators to deploy Windows 8.1/Windows 10 over a network with no interaction once the task sequences are created that contain all the information required for the installation.
This includes different packages that contain all the software required, including drivers, applications, user state, and operating system files. The course demonstrates performing ZTI using MDT and System Center Configuration Manager. This course help prepare for the 70-695 Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps certification exam.
In this course you will go through:

01. Prepare SCCM for Deployments
02. Perform ZTI
03. MDT Integration with SCCM
04. Practice: Use SCCM for ZTI
