VMWARE AIRWATCH PRODUCT PROVISIONING OF MICROSOFT OFFICE 2016 FOR macOS BEST PRACTICES

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.

Purpose

  • Learn how to provision Microsoft Office 2016 to macOS devices.
  • Customize the provided configurations to address Microsoft Office 2016 use cases not covered in this paper.
  • Use the provided configurations as a framework for identifying and provisioning other complex applications.
