Systems Management Integration is a feature that can save some time if you use it, but many simply don’t use it. To ease the workflow from packaging to deployment (or at least deployment testing) the integration we are talking about hear means to facilitate a hand off to your distribution system. This capability can rage greatly between vendors, from simply copying files to a defined folder structure to creating proprietary distribution files for popular deployment system. Systems Management Configuration Manager is among the most popular management solutions on the market, and so integration with SCCM is among the most common Systems Management Integration options you will find. However, other systems management vendors offer similar capabilities to receive packages and have worked with application packaging providers to put these integrations in place. This is another feature you should try before prioritizing against other features in which you have interest. If you think such a feature supports your systems management solution, will save you time, and is smooth enough to use that you would do so regularly, it may well rate highly as a must-have feature.
