Swimage Encore

Solution description:

Swimage Encore is an end to end Windows Desktop/Server deployment solution. Swimage Encore works in conjunction with Tivoli Endpoint Manager to reload/upgrade Windows operating systems, applications, end user data, and customizations eliminating the need for an engineer to physically touch the machine.

Solution web page: 

Swimage leverages the strengths of Tivoli Endpoint Manager by enhancing and simplifying their deployment capabilities in the following ways:

- Advanced Workflow: provides an advanced workflow engine that steps the project lead or manager through the deployment process.

- Single Management Console: a simple web portal for all access that allows deployment technicians to manage all aspects of an OS deployment for those without access to the TEM console.

- Automated Image Management: a fully automated process for defining, creating, and maintaining the binary images.

- Image Layering: uses dynamic image layering technique and a thin-image to allow individual role-based applications and settings to be applied per computer, fully automated.

- Data Protection: adds sophisticated and proprietary processes for data protection, providing several layers of data protection, including 100% protection of both known and unknown data.

- Hardware Driver Interrogator: simplifies the driver provisioning process.

- Active Deployment dashboard: provides a detailed and interactive dashboard that lists every deployment activity as it occurs, real-time, regardless of how the deployment is initiated.

- Deployment Validation and Dry-run: A pre-deployment validation that validates deployment steps prior to deployment ensuring deployment success.

 - Application Matching: automatically reinstall critical applications based on simple pre-defined rules.
