On Dell systems, Dell provides SupportAssist to update firmware, drivers, and other accessory applications. Is it necessary to use SupportAssist? Or will Windows Update (with Advanced Options for driver updates) also work?

It's not necessary. It's just OEM bloatware really. There's nothing it offers that can't be done otherwise, like updating specific drivers and such can be done from the support page for PC with the service tag, but you may find there's some convenience in having the app installed. Dell will also ask for it to be installed if you call them for help.
