        1. Deploying Office with Jamf
  5. Deployment source automation (cached vs ondemand)
  6. Network endpoints
  7. Activation and licensing
  8. License storage & conversion
        1. VL to O365 license conversion
  9. Office for Mac update channels
  10. Update cadence recommendations
  11. Microsoft AutoUpdate (MAU)
  12. MAU caching server
  13. Roadmap
        1. Today’s current deployment model of 4GB pagages
