What Does Install Shield Do?

It's a software I use rather often, and I know it puts stuff onto my computer, but why do programs need it? Can you install without it? Do viruses use install shield?SCCM shop looking at buying AppPortal from Flexera. Boss's aren't happy with the costs. Can anyone suggest an alternative for monitoring / tracking workstations and license use? Thanks Much.
