Microsoft‘s Surface Pro is a premium tablet that has become very popular among consumers. It comes with several software and hardware configurations that are perfect for the everyday consumer. However, Microsoft’s one touch deployment is specifically designed for the Surface line. It’s easy to deploy updates to Surface devices, but it’s much more difficult on other devices. Deploying updates to non-Surface devices can be difficult and time-consuming.
One touch deployment is a system that allows users to instantly update their Windows devices. The system works by downloading the latest updates from Microsoft and storing them on a local hard drive or USB drive. Then, when the user wants to update their device, they can simply touch a button on the screen to install all the latest updates. This saves a lot of time and effort when updating non-Surface devices compared to traditional methods.
However, there are some limitations to this method when updating non-Surface devices. Many non-Surface devices can connect to the internet, but they may not have the same capabilities as a Surface. For example, many mobile phones can connect to the internet, but they only have a limited data plan that will run out quickly if they download large amounts of data. This means that these updates need to be much smaller than those for Surface devices. Devices with limited internet capabilities will not be able to use one touch deployment.
Another limitation is how much storage space and memory the device has. Microsoft’s one touch deployment strategy only works for devices that have a certain amount of memory and storage space. This is because the system downloads updates from Microsoft’s servers and stores them locally on the device’s hard drive or USB drive. Then, when deploying updates, the device only needs to download the portion of the update relevant to their specific device model number. This makes deploying updates to non-Surface devices much more difficult compared to deploying updates to a Surface Pro.

One touch deployment can be very beneficial to non-Surface devices, but it has some shortcomings. A major benefit of one touch deployment is how easy it is to deploy updates. After downloading the latest updates from Microsoft’s servers, you only need to press a button and wait for them to install. No manual labor is required! However, this benefit is severely hampered when you need to download multiple gigabytes of data from Microsoft’s servers through your limited internet plan. This will quickly run you out of data, which negates one of the most significant benefits of one touch deployment.
Another benefit of one touch deployment is how easy it makes updating devices. You can easily push out all your company’s software updates at once rather than scheduling them throughout the week or month. This makes updating much easier since you don’t have to constantly check for new updates every few days. However, this benefit is still not as easy as Microsoft makes it out to be. Even with one touch deployment, updating a device still requires some level of manual labor since you have to manually download the update files from Microsoft’s servers in the first place.
Although Microsoft’s one touch deployment strategy is effective on Surface Pro devices, it is not as effective on other devices. One touch deployment is not effective on devices with limited internet capabilities since they cannot download update files from Microsoft’s servers in the first place. It also takes more time and effort to update devices through one touch deployment than it does to update a Surface Pro directly through Windows 10 settings.
