Abstract

There is an industry wide problem rolling out PC software images customized for particular job functions, i.e. if a single company wants separate applications / preloads for differing user responsibilities such as Software Development and Administrative work. This preload customization can be driven with an autonomic process that determines the user, their job function, and delivers appropriate software over a base image.
