You need Kies for some Samsung phones, to update the software (firmware) on your phone, Dulcina. What phone model do you have?

Adding to Sophia's answer, Kies installs a set of device specific usb drivers so that your computer is able to recognize and communicate with your Samsung device. Charging, tethering or turning your smartphone into a mass storage device when connected via usb to your computer, are some examples of why it's important to install Kies, even if you don't intend to use Kies for anything else.
