This presentation will walk through NI’s installer technology and the role of NIPM. If you use NI software, there is a high likelihood that you have interacted with NIPM in some capacity, either through an installation or through building a deployment. This presentation will talk through some of the motivation behind why NIPM was created, what NIPM is used for today, and what direction NIPM and its installers are heading in the future.
