Applications and deployment types can help the administrators of Configuration Manager to easily manage and deploy different software types on the client machines. Configuration Manager 2012 R2 can deploy software to collections, both device and user collections.

Users can be associated with their devices. This is a user setting, and it is called a primary device. This setting allows you to deploy software specific to users' needs.
