Discover Configuration Manager
In the 2012 release, Configuration Manager takes a new "user-centric" approach to application delivery. You can establish policies and relationship rules that allow Configuration Manager to evaluate user identity, application dependencies, device type, and network connection in order to deliver the optimum application experience to users from whatever device or devices they happen to be using.
Configuration Manager is key component of Microsoft Desktop Virtualization solutions. It provides asset, usage, and desired configuration management for personal and virtual desktops on a single infrastructure. It also integrates with Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) to deploy and manage virtual and physical applications, allowing you to easily scale application deployment throughout the enterprise as fully streamed virtual applications, locally delivered packages, or both.
With the SP1 release, the Configuration Manager console interoperates with Windows Intune to manage all mobile devices through a single tool. IT can manage and deploy policies, as well as provide asset and compliance reporting across Windows RT, Windows Phone 8, iOS, and other devices.
Configuration Manager serves as the management infrastructure for System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection. By aligning the client compliance and remediation capabilities of Configuration Manager with the antimalware and vulnerability protection features of Endpoint Protection, you can manage and protect your entire client infrastructure in a single solution. This consolidation can help you lower infrastructure costs and improve insight into the health and safety of your entire client environment.
