Not all programs have this kind of problem but it is perhaps understandable that out of all the updates, the ones that are for an operating system might be trickier to control since it’s the base for all your everyday use programs. This is why XEOX offers this extra amount of control over how and when these updates might occur. When you have a high number of active machines in your company with many hard-working employees, for which you have to maintain them, it’s important to keep the interruptions and impairments at a minimum for efficiency purposes. Say your employees’ activities include working with clients and setting up profiles and accounts for them, if updates are available you first have to download them, then install. In some cases, the downloading part happens in the background without you even being aware of it, potentially causing the local network traffic to slow down, especially since it’s easy to imagine how this might happen on multiple machines in a network at once. For some users, certain updates might not even be the promised improvement. Sometimes you might not want a certain update to occur at all because it’s been known to interfere with certain workflows. That’s another aspect you can manage with XEOX. For some users, the solution can be just as straightforward as disabling them, but that is not recommended for good reason. Some updates are more important than others and you wouldn’t want to endanger the security of your network that way.
But fortunately, as one of the industry best practice solutions available, XEOX, is a handy tool that can help you, forcing all updates to take place when it’s convenient. Easy to use and understand for experienced IT Administrators, with a few lines you can build a command line script to configure your machines updating process with XEOX, taking care of the hard task of utilizing the complex and poorly documented Windows Update API. XEOX can be used in combination with any other common tools for managing your networks like psexec or WSUS or SCCM. Of course, you can do all of those scripts remotely from a central location as well. This can seriously reduce or even eliminate the number of interruptions and service outages your users might have to suffer and give IT Administrators the possibility to easily put a leash on the update trouble.
In any case, in view of the rate at which technology is advancing, we have to get used to the fact that for new features to be born and to be optimized you have to get used to being sidetracked once in a while and take a moment to configure how these updates take place. With XEOX you’ll get to that perfect routine of maintenance, which ensures that smooth workflow with no unwanted interruptions.
