Q: (from Chris)
Administratively, how can a user manage what licenses are installed on what machines for office?
I have an administrator that does not want his users to download office on machines that are not corporate. How can he manage this easily?
We support two deployment methods for Office 365 ProPlus: through the Office 365 deployment portal and from a corporate deployment server. If the customer wants to control which machines Office 365 ProPlus is installed on, they would have to use a local deployment server.
Here is an article on the topic:
Another detail I found interesting: if you deploy Office 365 ProPlus through our portal, updates are automatically deployed to the user desktop. If you use the local deployment server, you can use traditional patch management tools.
