The Dell System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) Catalogs automate the patch process of system updates for Dell servers and workstations in a Microsoft ConfigMgr or Microsoft System Center Essentials (SCE) environment. The catalog files contain detailed information to determine which updates are required for Dell servers and workstations, and how to apply them. It can be used in conjunction with the software update management functionality of Microsoft ConfigMgr (and update deployment process in SCE) to provide automated BIOS, firmware, driver, and Dell application updates.
