Chocolatey is software management automation for Windows. Chocolatey provides a universal packaging framework that uniquely works with all aspects of software from installers to zips, scripts, and runtime binaries (or your own internal software).
System engineers spend hours deploying & configuring Windows software manually. Traditional tools are not built for modern automation and a DevOps approach, which can make achieving consistency and gaining insights across your environment difficult.
There are a lot of different installer formats and multiple approaches to deploying Windows software. Deploying software without package management on Windows can be complicated and time-consuming.
Chocolatey simplifies this through a simple, repeatable, and automated approach, by using a universal packaging format for managing all Windows software. It doesn't matter if you are using native installers, zips, scripts, binaries or in-house developed applications and tools – Chocolatey treats them as all 1st class citizens.
Write once, deploy anywhere, with anything, and then simply track & manage.
