Hi everyone, my name is Sonia Cuff and welcome to my course Office 365: Deploying and Updating Office 365 ProPlus.

I’m a Microsoft MVP and technology consultant at my own company, The Missing Chair.

Office 365 is the fastest growing part of Microsoft’s business in their entire history. The Office 365 ProPlus desktop versions of Word, Excel etc are used by businesses with a couple of staff members right through to large Enterprises.

This course gives you tips, tricks and resources for a successful Office 365 ProPlus roll out, that’s also easy to keep updated in the future.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Understanding Click to Run software
  • Planning your Update structrure
  • Troubleshooting a failed deployment
  • And updating the Office 365 ProPlus software
By the end of this course you’ll be confident deploying Office 365 ProPlus into your organization and you’ll understand its update management.

Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Group Policy and System Center Configuration Manager if you already use those in your organization, but you can deploy Office 365 ProPlus without them.
