Download  vCenter iso and that will have vCenter, Update Manager, Single Sign On, etc..

Install vCenter, SSO, and Infrastructure service  (if on a windows machine) and then install update manager

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

You will need to install on a windows machine and register the plug-in with vCenter.

Here's a KB on what's bundled with appliance and what's not

It will install a SQL Express instance for you if you like, it's the easiest way to go.  That's the ISO you need.
