System Center Configuration Manager also called Configuration Manager, or SCCM, is part of Microsoft Endpoint Manager in Azure.
Easy, isn't it? =)
To put it simply
This solution manages clients, servers and devices, and is a real step forward in simplifying the operational management of these environments, facilitating the deployment of operating systems and applications, system quarantine, IT visibility, patching (Microsoft or third party) and finally, system and application compliance management.
Deploying and managing Windows is easier than ever with new enhancements including support for the latest Windows 10 features, in-place Windows upgrades, more frequent and easier updates, a unified end-user portal and local mobile device management (MDM).
The benefits to the business are numerous. The suite allows employees to access the business applications they need from anywhere via any device. At the same time, it also ensures the security of company information.
SCCM also simplifies the administration of client systems, and provides better visibility. There are also enforcement options to maintain system compliance. The suite also unifies the IT management infrastructure. This includes protection, management of different devices and virtual and physical environments.
The other major advantage of this service is that it is designed to work with Windows 10. This means that whenever a feature is implemented in Windows 10, System Center Configuration Manager supports it directly.
