IT Best Practices: As part of managing the more than 100,000 PCs in use at Intel, Intel IT spends a significant amount of time and effort managing operating system deployment. Historically, new OS versions have been released every few years. Today, the industry is transitioning to an OS-as-a-service model, with updates and new features delivered on a continual basis.

This shift in delivery method requires us to develop some new best practices and modify others. For example, we need to create a permanent testing environment and layer applications and configurations on the platform so that frequent changes to the underlying OS do not disrupt employee productivity.

As the industry evolves toward OS as a service, we must understand and accommodate the continuous delivery model. The changes we are making to our operating system deployment best practices will improve our flexibility and agility, enabling us to continue providing top-quality support to the enterprise.
