System Software Manager
System Software Manager (SSM) is a utility available on Windows workstations that lets you update
system-level software on multiple systems simultaneously. When executed on a PC client system, SSM
detects hardware and software versions and then updates the software from a central repository,
known as a file store. Driver versions supported by SSM are noted with a special icon on the software,
the driver download Web site, and on the Support Software CD.
