Windows Vista Client Build and Deployment Process

I often get asked about the process I go through when working with clients on deployment projects - I find that building a corporate client image that meets the needs and requirements of a large organisation follows a distinct process. All aspects of the client and deployment design including hardware compatibility, user experience, look and feel, locality support, language support, security testing, application testing image certification and final deployment are delivered as elements within a project. So i put together the diagram below that outlines the areas that I consider when working with clients on Windows Vista deployment projects.

Over the coming weeks, i'll be discussing each section in more detail with a hope that this will help with your own deployment projects
