That’d be a long list, and it depends on what you’re comparing it to.


Some of the key things I like to mention include:

  • MDT is available for free.
  • MDT can easily scale from deploying a few systems to deploying tens of thousands of systems.
  • MDT can integrate into most existing deployment solutions by importing the images into MDT (or integrating MDT with SCCM).
  • MDT allows for deployment to disparate hardware via driver management.
  • MDT can produce diverse environments due to independent management of applications during deployment.
  • Due to driver and application management, MDT can greatly reduce the number of images required by an organization.
  • MDT is exceptionally flexible. Once you’ve built a deployment share and become familiar with MDT you can copy components to quickly prepare for any deployment scenario.


If you are comparing MDT to SCCM, the answer is more that MDT provides a large number of wizards, prebuild task sequences, and scripts that greatly simplify the deployment process and extend functionality.


I’d highly recommend the Windows 8.1 Deployment Jump Start if you haven’t seen it, some deployment experts like Michael Niehaus and Johan Arwidmark explore the functionality of deployment with MDT and really help to illustrate its benefits.
