  • Dear audience,Thank you for your interest in PACE product and attending the webinar.Please mute your microphones, you can ask question in the chat window.My name is Oleg Nalyvaiko. I’m PACE product manager.Some of you already know our product and some of you already use it.For those who are the first time with us, I want to say that PACE is developed by Infopulse Ukraine one of the leading IT companies in Ukraine.
  • Webinar agenda is followingWe’ll start with PACE solution overviewThen I’ll conduct live demo Automated Packaging Self-Service following by summary and Q & A session
  • Our StoryWe have been in Application Packaging since 2005 and since that time we have grown into the biggest packaging team in Europe with more than 100 packaging engineers (working in 3 cities in Ukraine).In 2009 reaching full professional level in application packaging we realized that many things are missing in the existing packaging products and may things should be improved.And in 2009 we started development of own application packaging tool – MSI Generator.Development of PACE as a product suite sparked off by Gartner in 2011PACE product we launched at the Packaging Event in Amsterdam in October 2012
  • Packaging Acceleration Center – wenameitshortly PACE consists of 4 products (MSI Generator, AppV generator, MSI Editor, Docu Generator) and cloud-based web service (Automated Packaging Self-Service).Automated Packaging Self-ServiceAPS provides fully automated application packages creation, testing and documenting. At the same time packaging engineer is able to install and configure application manually, but all the rest routine operations are done automatically.MSI GeneratorProduct for MSI packages and MSI transforms creation. Easy-to-use interface, full customizable features, Enhanced snapshotting and Installation Discovery, complete portability.MSI EditorEditing and fixing MSI’s can take 70% of the overall packaging process time. MSI Editor can simplify MSI editing operations providing unique feature which are not available in another products.App-V GeneratorPowerful  tool for App-V packages generation and editing with minimum user efforts and maximum flexibility. Docu GeneratorWhat if you could delegate to a smart tool all routine actions which you are doing at user guides and installation manuals creation? Docu Generator is this tool. It’s specially developed to create all types of technical documentation with minimum efforts and maximum comfort.
  • Why we have launched PACE product ?IT marked demands higher packaging performance and reducing packaging costs. It can be achieved by features implemented in PACE suite:automation of routine workmake packaging workflow less fragmented, packaging engineer should not wait for tool (wait until progress bar finished), tool should work automatically or wait for an engineerDon’t repeat the same action for different output formatsQualityPackaging engineer spend hours for cleaning up package from garbage and fixing ICE errors. We have developed product providing very good quality of MSI packages anccomplience with best practices of application packaging – and as a result we spend less time for errors fixing and provide higher quality of packagesInnovationsWe are missing many features in existing products and as a result - In the PACE we implement many unique features which are not available in other packaging products.
  • * Portability in packaging. Often packaging engineer need portable tools for packaging onside at customer environment where not installed (cannot be installed) another packaging tools.* Usability. PACE products user interface is specially designed to reduceodd actions.* Expertise. Having more than 7 years expertise in application packaging - Application packaging problems are very well known for us and we know what do we need and know how to implement it.
  • Using PACE you can improve performance of all steps of Packaging workflow.PACE provides everything you need to speed up your Software Packaging:Application Discovery and compatibility check is possible to do automatically using Automated Packaging Self-ServiceUsing Docu Generator you can easily create application installation and configuration instructionsYou can do packaging in APS automatically or use MSI Generator in case you need 100% of control for the packaging processPackage editing and fixing can be done in MSI Generator, MSI Editor and AppV GeneratorAutomated packages testing can be done in Automated Packaging Self-Service as well
  • Now with Automated Packaging Self-Service you can makeany amount of packages doing only 4 steps:Open web siteCreate project, specifying target platforms and desired package typesUpload sourcesAnd after that, you may have a coffee break or do something else, or finish your working day and download results next day.System does all packaging steps automatically witch before you did manuallyLoginCreate project (no TEST, better PACE)Tell about project optionsTell about packager uploading option (FTP, Web)Start uploading (automated mode), go to the next 2 slides
  • APS provides 3 options of source package installation:Fully Automated package installation: as soon as package is uploaded to APS package is added to the packaging queue and special module recognize buttons on installation UI and clicks on them and makes screenshots of clicked windows2nd option: Packaging Engineer can configure uploaded package before packaging: select pre-requisites, specify custom install die or command ine options, specify order of executable in case source package have several ones and then start automated packaging3-rd option: Packaging Engineer can install and configure source application manually in Remote Desktop window (VNC session)
  • We often hear from customer: “Try to create AppV package first, if sequined application doesn’t work create msi package then.”Or “Try to create Transform for vendor MSI first and then if it doesn't work, repackage application.”But the approach “if then” really takes a lot of time in case first option is failed and additional time is spent for next options.Using Automated Packaging Self-Service you can avoid spending you time for this “if then” approach, due to APS builds automatically package for all possible formats for all selected platforms. So, you don’t spend your time on making package again and again for different formats - you need only to select the most appropriate format from the previously created packages.
  • APS is available form the public cloud and can deployed to the local network if customer and used as a private cloud.For the public cloudThe packaging environment is always with you and ready to start packaging, simply open the APS web page and upload sources or download results.For the private cloud optionAPS can be deployed to your IT infrastructure and customized to work according to your packaging standards and workflow.
  • APS creates MSI Generator project files which can be downloaded on the desktop and modified.Finally user can build MSI and MST transforms for vendor MSIsUsers can take a close look into the application’s installation files and processes. With full control over these processes, users are better able to create packages that fully meet their requirements.The MSI Generator comes with a predefined MSI package profile, an MSI template, and system resource filters. There’s no need for additional configuration. Just run it and start packaging.For experienced users, the MSI Generator provides complete customization. Easily create custom MSI profiles, templates, and filters to satisfy different system requirements. And as it’s an executable file, there is no installation required. Plus, it can be launched from anywhere, for example from shared folders or USB drives.
