Client software distribution

The client software distribution (CSD) application allows administrators to distribute software from the service catalog using third party management systems.

Client software distribution allows an administrator to create all the records necessary to deploy software from service catalog requests, including software models and catalog items. CSD also integrates with Software Asset Management to track license counts for deployed software. Deployment is accomplished using Orchestration activities and workflows.

Note: You can use the CSD application to automate the deployment and revocation of software from an SCCM host using the custom SCCM activity pack or to manage license counts for deployed software.
