Software Packaging

What exactly does software packaging mean?

The term “software packaging” generally describes the customization and preparation of software installations. These installations are configured in the form of a software package that does not require intervention by the user. Packaging software is therefore an important part of software deployment. It is also a preparatory activity that ensures software deployment is secure and convenient. In addition to standard software packages, customized software packages are available to accommodate a specific IT environment to make it more efficient. Moreover, the job of a software packager is to test the software packages so that installations run smoothly and are automated.

The amount of time and expertise needed for software packaging is often underestimated. This work is actually very complex, prone to errors, and time consuming. For every 300 clients there are on average ten applications with approximately ten updates each year to be packaged. Each package takes approximately two hours to create at an hourly rate of €50. 10 applications x 10 updates x 2 hours of work x €50/hr = €10,000.

Software packaging is often seen as a side job. This results in inadequate, deficient, and risky software deployment. You can avoid this scenario with Deskcenter AppCloud and our packaging service. Invest in standardized software packages including testing and automation.

Cost Efficient

Installing software packages saves both time and money. It also reduces the amount of personnel you need because you are streamlining and automating work processes. You can save even more in costs and time/resources if you leave the software packages to our qualified employees and choose our AppCloud service.



Without accurate software packaging, software installations are more complicated and take longer. This results in a high rate of errors. And in return, this poses a security risk to your IT environment. Minimize this risk by eliminating the error source. Let the professionals package your software by using our packaging service.
