    Can ITCM deploy the Office 365 apps? I'm aware these use click to run but was hoping I could create a central CIFS share that hosts the binaries but delivery the setup/conf via ITCM so I can report on where its deployed/missing and patch it as needed.

    When I tested delivery of office 365 I had all the flies in the SD Library. But there would be nothing to stop you creating a script that mapped a drive to a central location and invoked the setup.

    Thanks Steve!  Makes sense as would enable DTS usage etc. also. Can I ask two other questions:

    1. Assume the individual apps deployed in this manner are detected by either the software delivery/inventory modules or the AM Sig scanner?
    2. What approach did you use for patching the apps?

    I have not tried patching, but as with any thing MS I believe it best to use file shares as the setup program will work out which blocks of the files it needs rather than copying the complete file.
