We're considering AdminStudio as an alternative to our Wise 8.0 setup.

From what I've read AdminStudio's got better ability to convert existing packages into sequences and some other nice features.

So, a few questions:
- Has anyone made the switch?
- If you're using AdminStudio, which edition/add-ons?
- Is there any reason to drop 20k to buy AdminStudio + addons + maintenance?

Speaking as someone who much prefers Wise over IS, in my view Wise is dead in the water. I believe Symantec purchased it purely for the deployment system and has left the Wise family to wither on the vine. Mind you, even before that, Wise's track record on bug-fixing and keeping track with technology was already pretty dire.

We bought pretty much everything because we have 4-5 (maybe more) departments doing packaging for different requirements. My group is specifically packaging for Windows 7 and honestly, I only use the InstallShield Editor. Mind you, I work for the government and our division has over 65000 people.

I'd say it really depends on what your focus or requirements are and what your software deployment strategy is.
