First Focus can help your organisation create, deploy and maintain an SOE. Creating an SOE usually involves building an image with a standard operating system and set of applications, testing with a pilot group and then rolling out to all devices on the network.
Our staging facilities and team of national field service technicians are available for large rollouts of new devices. An SOE can also be deployed on-premise using customer infrastructure.
After an initial SOE is built we will ensure it’s maintained for Windows and application updates, newer hardware models and drivers.
Today, with Azure Active Directory, Intune and Autopilot, we usually recommend a more agile, cloud-based approach. This saves the need for onsite storage, allows devices to be deployed more easily in any location, and reduces the maintenance of a “golden image”.
