The Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) helps administrators manage large groups of Windows-based computer systems. SCCM allows campus administrators to provide their users with operating systems, applications, and updates.


SCCM allows administrators to build customized installations of software, operating system images, and configurations that can be repeated across multiple desktop systems or entire labs to which they are administrators. This process provides consistency, simplifies desktop management, and reduces overall administrative costs while providing the flexibility necessary to meet the diverse needs of the campus environment.

For their client servers or workstations, administrators can:

  • Provide the initial installation of an operating system and/or software on a new machine
  • Push software, patches, configurations, and updates to individual machines or groups of machines
  • Rebuild a system that has been compromised
  • Run reports
