SCCM is more for management of machines and software distribution, for example installing software on multiple physical machines.

Xenapp is an extension of RDP that is used to deliver applications to machines from an installation on a server which is shared between users.

Can they both be used in same environment or do companies go with one to send out software

CamyCommented:
They could both be used certainley, it would depend on the environment and the requirements i would think as to whether you need one or both.

Installing software to existing machines would be SCCM but Xenapp would host the applications centrally for users to connect to from anywhere and mutiple machines / devices.

To extend on what Camy said.

SCCM is for software delivery, path management (replace WSUS), reporting, etc on your desktop and server fleet.

XenApp is an extension of terminal services. Think of it as application virtualisation. It delivers applications running on the terminal server to a remote device (it can also stream application). So imagine that basically the XenApp server is taking lots of pictures of your application running very quickly and sending them to you.

You would usually manage the applications installed on XenApp servers using SCCM. And use XenApp to deliver the app to the client over terminal services.
