Bypass Service Manager and Orchestrator and implement email approval directly into Configuration Manager

One of the key, new consumerization features of System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) 2012 is the ability to setup a corporate “App Store” where end-users can “shop” for corporate-approved applications to be installed at the user’s whim. This is huge value where ConfigMgr admins only need to provide software bits in an internal directory on a server, then in ConfigMgr configure the application’s properties and make the software available. End-users can just browse the web directory listing of available applications and acquire applications needed for specific jobs and functions. ConfigMgr admins can even limit application “stock” to ensure that corporate licensing is also adhered to.
