SMU Software Delivery Methods
All OIT Managed computers should have the LANDesk inventory agent installed by default. This agent not only provides inventory tracking, but also assists in software deployment. Applications that are available for faculty and staff to install without any additional cost are published to the deployment portal whenever possible.
