A long time ago I reviewed a tool called PDT, PowerShell Deployment Toolkit for 4Sysops, (it’s a funny name since it doesn’t actually deploy PowerShell, it deploys System Center 2012 / 2012 R2). It’s now been furnished with a GUI by a couple of people in Germany and it works quite well – read all about it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
