VSC 6.2P2 without SnapCenter - what do I lose?

I'm in the middle of a VSC 6.2P2 implementation and I can't find anything that clearly defines what I gain by using SnapCenter.

 

Some of the documents indicate that without SnapCenter, I can't bring a VM online in another data center even if I have configured SnapMirror/SnapVault without SnapCenter. Is this accurate?

 

Assuming I don't care about the centralized management or the application integration, what does SnapCenter do for me and why would I use it with VSC?
