Recently Philadelphia MTC Architects Todd Furst and Michael Gannotti met with IT folks from a client that was not convinced about why they should look to move to a Click to Run model of Office Pro Plus deployment and management. Instead they were committed to use of the MSI install and traditional management. After much discussion as well as demonstration they decided that not only did they want to move to a Click to Run model but additionally asked for the tools and instructions needed to move test users to Current Branch. This has been a repeated scenario seen recently.
In this episode of Michael on the Go MTC Architect Michael Gannotti introduces the why's of some orgs desire to look at current branch as well as provides the links provided to the client in question.
