Abstract

The idea is to setup one platform from which device's users can reinstall/reconfigure applications with help from those application's producer/creator.It provides one method to improve environment recreating performance by reusing application's creating/setup information.

We can help IT dept in enterprise to give quicker way to release new machine or reinstall machine for employee. And we also can help personal user to full of their new device.The user's experience would be better.

Platform allow user to recreate enviroment in different computing devices

In enterprise employee sometimes have to reinstall their workstation due to device issue, they have to reinstall some applications and reconfigure those applications; or employee don't need reinstall operation system but still have to reinstall and reconfigure some application, this happens when they refreshing their workstation after old machine's performance is not acceptable; for personal users, they also have similar problem when they buy new computing device for themselves, reinstall/reconfigure Apps on new smartphone or pad or PC/laptop and so on.

To reinstall/reconfigure applications is not easy sometime especially for employee in enterprise, and for developer, this could waste day or even days. And sometimes above cases happens not only in differ device but also in differ operating systems.

If we can help IT dept in enterprise to give quicker way to release new machine or reinstall machine for employee, if we can help personal user to full of their new device, user's experience would be better. The idea is to setup one platform from which device's users can reinstall/reconfigure applications with help from those application's producer/creator.

On the platform we: allow application producer to register on this platform and after platform's owner/admin's assessment and permission, application producer can upload sets of process, which can transform application's configuration between differ device/operating systems; allow user to upload application's configurations and install applications can run on new device/operating system with exactly same configurations directly. The platform contains several components to work together:

component for application producer to store process, which can let application producer tell platform on different device/operating system to collect what kind of info, and also tell those mapping between configurations on different device/operating system;

and another one component to connect to and collecting info from user's old device/OS, firstly it collect device's hardware info, operating system info, application's name and version; with these info component can know what configurations to collect since application producer has already tell all these to platform; after get those...
