Different tools for accomplishing the same tasks. Perhaps you have heard the expression "more than one way to skin a cat"?

"Software Center" is just a more "user friendly" name for a graphical interface to the package manager. The package manager APT can also be used from the command line using "apt-get" or "aptitude".
