    • Shopping Central service – performs various processes at intervals, such as scheduling deployments, retrieving data from Active Directory and Configuration Manager, and sending emails

    • Shopping database – for data storage

  • Shopping Console GUI – to administer and use Shopping

    • installed on the Central Server by default

    • can be installed on remote computers

  • Shopping Receiver service

    • installed on each Configuration Manager site. Creates collections and deployments

  • 1E Client with Shopping client module enabled

    • The Shopping module retrieves information about the user's computer when Shoppers browse the Shopping Portal
