As Office 2010 gets nearer RTM (another phase of releases went out the other day to TAP customers) many of us need to begin to think about how we’re going to deploy it. Good news is that Microsoft has taken the thought out of the what’s and how’s and put it all together for us in a simple document. Even better, they’ve given us three options – a PDF, an XPS or even a Visio (what the PDF and XPS were made from, no doubt).
In short, there are five ways to deploy Office 2010:
- Network Share
- Group Policy & Startup Scripts
- Managed Deployment
- Application Virtualisation (App-V)
- Presentation Virtualisation (a.k.a. Terminal Services)
As with anything, each has its advantages and disadvantages, all outlined for you and downloadable from here:
