ThinkVantage Technologies brings your IBM PCs one step closer to being self-configured, self-optimizing, self-protecting, and self-healing to help save you time and money throughout the life of your systems. In short, ThinkVantage Technologies lets you focus your attention on your business, rather than on your computer. ThinkVantage Technologies has
software tools designed to help customers drive down IT support costs (in particular, the cost of a PC in managing and supporting systems after the initial purchase), increase security, and decrease the complexity of today’s IT infrastructure.

IBM Software Delivery Assistant (SDA) is an application that simplifies the deployment of applications to client workstations. SDA separates the applications from the operating system so that the Software Delivery Assistant suite of applications can be maintained stand-alone and deployed across multiple platforms.

This Redpaper covers Version 1.31 of Software Delivery Assistant. It will help you install, tailor, and configure the IBM Software Delivery Assistant ThinkVantage Technology on IBM and OEM desktops.
