This best practices guide provides instructions for delivering Microsoft Office 2016 to managed macOS devices using the VMware AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management™ Product Provisioning feature. For a complex and nonstandard application such as Microsoft Office 2016, Product Provisioning serves as an alternative to the standard practice of installing the application directly on a device.
The procedures in this guide do not apply to a specific macOS-based hardware model or to a particular VMware AirWatch deployment model. The instructions provide guidance, but do not represent strict design requirements.
This white paper provides configuration guidelines for provisioning Microsoft Office 2016 as a product to employees on managed macOS devices.
