Create and update a client-side software cache that keeps track of the software that is installed and discovered on the client computer.
Manage all the software delivery functions in Software Management Solution.
Software deliveries are closely integrated with the software resources in the Software Catalog. The Software Management Framework agent manages the package downloads and other aspects of software delivery.
The Software Management Framework agent is installed on the client computers along with the Symantec Management Agent. Therefore, separate installation and configuration are unnecessary. The Symantec Management Console does not contain a user interface for viewing, installing, or configuring the agent.
