HP claims that its Device Provisioning Services can streamline and enhance the process of buying new hardware within a business, while also conserving the costs of doing so. It covers many typical stages of the same, from selection to update regulation. This suite has a range of "modules" aimed at facilitating hardware and software management for target clients.

HP's Device Provisioning Services is this OEM's take on the 'done-for-you' IT deployment suite. It asserts that it can bring "expertise you can trust" to this concept, in a manner that may save time and money while building a new or updated enterprise PC fleet.

This solution comes with a range of sub-services, including one that can configure the machines in question at the factory. This may involve the pre-installation of larger apps so as to conserve company bandwidth and rendering individual PCs cloud ready. All in all, HP claims that this aspect of its provisioning tool culminates in "a better out-of-box experience". The OEM calls these modules the Provisioning Package Create and Install Services.

Besides this prospect, there is also the "Discover, Design, and Integrate Workshop", which is more or less the HP equivalent of Dell Technologies' Workforce Persona. The third-generation Sure Recover Custom Restore Service, on the other hand, can restore specific configs in updated hardware without needing to bother the IT department.

This form of HP provisioning also has an Update Service, which can handle the installation of new versions, Windows or otherwise. Alternatively, the OS Version Control Service functions to prevent this in the event that teams need to retain long-validated older software. These Device Provisioning Services will be available to channel partners in the second half of 2020 (by HP's current estimate), but are open to all other customers from now.
