Hi All :

    System Center 2012 Configuration Manager supports the management of virtual applications that are created with Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V). When you use Configuration Manager to manage App-V applications, Configuration Manager takes over the management and streaming components of a typical App-V infrastructure.

    When you use Configuration Manager to manage virtual applications, you gain the benefits of using a single management infrastructure. You will also gain the benefits of scalability, deployment, and content distribution features, such as collections and user device affinity, and additional advanced application management features that Configuration Manager provides. App-V also integrates with Configuration Manager features, such as operating system deployment, software and hardware inventory, software metering, and Asset Intelligence to support virtual applications.

   To deploy virtual applications to computers, you must have the Configuration Manager client and App-V Client installed on your computers. Client devices can include desktop and portable computers, and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) clients. The Configuration Manager and App-V Client software work together to deliver, locate, and launch virtual application packages. The Configuration Manager client manages the delivery of virtual application packages to the App-V Client. The App-V Client runs the virtual application on the client.

    Now, System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Manager fully support Application Virtualization 5.0, this document will to show you how to integrate Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 with App-V 5.0.
