Here's the deal. I'm beginning the groundwork for a research project comparing various software deployment products.

Basically, what I need is the name of any system that I can use to deploy software (both msi AND exe) to an organization of 3000 clients in numerous sites.

I have a good deal of experience in SMS, so I'm looking for products other than that. Feel free to give a quick overview if you like, but I'm only looking for a very high level description, if any.

Thanks everyone. :)
