Deploy Integration Pack in Orchestrator (SCORCH)
System Center Orchestrator includes set of standard activities out of the box however you can expand the functionality and ability of Orchestrator to integrate platforms and products by Microsoft and other companies by installing integration packs.
Each integration pack contains activities that provide unique functions. Microsoft provides integration packs for all of the System Center products, a number of other Microsoft products, and technologies and products from other companies.
Microsoft provides integration packs for all of the System Center products, as well as other Microsoft and third party products and technologies. The same can be downloaded from Microsoft Download Center and TechNet library:
The Integration packs also include the guide which provides instructions for installation, known issues and reference information for the activities in the Integration Pack.
