Deploy Office client applications for Office 365

As the Office 365 admin for your enterprise, you control how Office gets rolled out to the users your organization. For example, you can choose which Office software that your users can install from Office 365. Or, you can use your existing software deployment processes, such as using System Center Configuration Manager to deploy and update Office for your users.

Both Windows and Office have a new model for managing updates. For Office, you can control how often your users get feature updates — either monthly or every six months — by choosing the update channel that best fits your business needs.

Also, Microsoft provides tools, such as the Office Deployment Tool and Group Policy settings, to help you manage how Office is installed and updated on Windows desktops.
