  • Module 6: Managing Software Distribution and Deployment by Using Packages and Programs

Traditionally, Microsoft Systems Management Server 2003 and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 product lines utilized packages and programs for deploying software. System Center 2012 Configuration Manager introduced the concept of applications, which provides a new software deployment model that is more flexible than the conventional packages and programs. However, this did not eliminate the need to use packages and programs.
Typically, you will deploy software to computers running Windows and Apple OS X by using applications. However, you can still use packages and programs in many situations for Windows-based computers. For example, you can deliver content to Windows-based clients to support running scripts. Additionally, you can use packages and programs to deploy content to Linux and UNIX-based computers.
This module is the first of many that focus on software deployment. This module describes how to manage software by using packages and programs, while subsequent modules cover the application-management model.

  • Module 7: Creating and Deploying Applications

The Administering System Center 2012 Configuration Manager application deployment model enhances the capabilities of packages and programs for delivery of software to Windows operating systems, the Mac operating system (Mac OS X), and mobile devices. When deploying to Windows, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, in addition to packages and programs, uses Configuration Manager applications. These applications are best for deploying installer-based software, such as Windows installations that are .msi-file based. This is because they provide a more intelligent software deployment model.
 With the Configuration Manager application deployment model, you can create a single deployment for Windows-based clients and mobile device clients that provide different installation options depending on specifically defined conditions. For example, you can install an application locally on user’s primary devices and deploy a virtual version of the application when they are on other devices, all through the same deployment. You can do this by using features such as requirements and dependencies. Additional features, such as state-based reporting and detection methods, can help you create intelligent deployments.
In this module, you will learn about the application model and the basics for creating, deploying, and managing applications with Configuration Manager. You will also learn how to use Configuration Manager Software Center and Configuration Manager Application Catalog to install available applications.
