ThinkVantage Technologies bring your 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 IBM Redbooks publication will help you install, tailor, and configure the ThinkVantage Technologies on Lenovo/IBM and third party desktops and mobiles.
ThinkVantage Technologies covered in the book include:
- ImageUltra Builder V3.0
- System Migration Assistant V5.0
- Secure Data Disposal V1.3
- Access Connections V3.81
- Active Protection System V1.33b
This is Volume 1 of a two-volume set of ThinkVantage Technologies Redbooks. It describes how to create and deploy client systems. The second volume is Using ThinkVantage Technologies Volume 2: Maintaining and Recovering Client Systems, SG24-7107.
