Skills In Detail

In this section I will explain what I have done with the technical skills I have developed throughout my career.

Please also see my Key Achievements section.

Microsoft Desktop Optimisation Pack (MDOP) – App-V / MBAM / AGPM

I have setup SCCM Task Sequences to install Bitlocker on workstations and used MBAM to store the keys and to give better self-service to the users and ServiceDesk.

I have used App-V before but only from SCCM. I’ve created a few linked packages before but not changed the application deployment concept to this – I have only used it for applications which are not compatible with others so we run them in the sand-box.

I have also setup AGMP which is part of the standard process for GPO editing.

I also setup DART which is used within our SCCM Task Sequence and by the support teams.

Desktop productivity suite configuration and deployment knowledge – Office 2010, 2013 or Office 365 ProPlus

I created the Office 2010 Deployment Package, deployed from SCCM to over 7,000 workstations. This included a custom configuration to suite the companies requirements, make it more user friendly and lessen the support burden of upgrading from various previous versions of Office.

I have started deploying the Office 365 ProPlus package to a set of pilot users. I have had to include 13 different languages to cover the majority of the countries Outokumpu operate in.

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)

I have limited experience with MDT, I used it a lot with SCCM 2007 for Operating System Deployment (the database part so that I could do dynamic queries), and I’ve used it for my own Lab environment to deploy quick and dirty test machines, but I’ve never used it in production to deploy PCs – mainly because I installed SCCM to do that.
