    Accepted Solution

    To reduce complexity and increase standardization, organizations should select a combination of hardware and software to distribute to all users. This means putting in place a standard operating environment (SOE) that can serve as the baseline for all system installations. The SOE should include standard hardware drivers, core operating system features, core productivity applications-especially if they are under volume licensing, and core utilities. It should also include a standard set of security features as outlined in the organizations corporate policy. Using such an SOE can vastly reduce deployment challenges.
