System Update 5? Thought it was replaced by Lenovo Vantage?

Hi, System Update 5 popped up this AM and wanted to search for updates. I allowed it and none were found. No problem there, my question is, hasn't Vantage replaced System Update? In other words, is SU5 needed on my P1? TIA!

P1: 8850H, FHD, 16gb, 512gb, P2000, IR Camera, Windows 10 Pro
T450s & X201t & M93p, too

Re: System Update 5? Thought it was replaced by Lenovo Vantage?

Vantage includes a System Update feature, along with several other features (Hardware Settings, Diagnostics, etc).  But we still provide a stand-alone System Update for customers who don't want Vantage.  Also, the stand-alone System Update has more management features for enterprise administrators.  You definitely don't need both.  If you're happy with Vantage, then you should uninstall System Update from Control Panel -> Programs and Features.  Both Vantage and System Update install from the exact same catalog of updates, so there is no benefit to having both.
