You can use this action instead of running exes on remote computers using PowerShell, basically as a remote command prompt for Windows to run programs on another computer on your network. The ability to run command prompt on remote computer and remotely access another computer using cmd.exe comes very handy as a generic way to perform all kinds of maintenance actions, such as running programs installed on another computer, starting backup operations, running bat files remotely and more.
The additional benefit is delegation to non-administrators of the ability to run programs remotely on Windows systems from a list of remote commands pre-approved by system administrators (think of it as an inventory of psexec remote cmds available for helpdesk operators, for example).
