Microsoft in now leveraging "Click-to-install" technology for subscribers of Office365 who are entitled to run the Office Pro client software locally.  Enterprise administrators are able to decide whether installs should automatically synch from the cloud, or alternatively the administrator can define an internal network location where the local client can be synched from in order to have more control over patch release timing.  Security and enhancement patches are not planned to be available through the normal Microsoft processes per this recent session from Microsoft TechEd:  http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2013/OUC-B302#fbid=92pMsNiXp8j

 

This enhancement request is to take a look at this new install/maintenance method from Microsoft and see if there is a way to integrate into the Altiris patch management methodology.
