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

This series of Redbooks will help you install, tailor and configure the IBM ThinkVantage Technologies on IBM and OEM desktops.

Using ThinkVantage Technologies, Volume 1: Creating and Deploying Client Systems describes how to create and deploy client systems. The tools covered include:
