There are two way how you can deploy Office 365 depending on the size of your company.
Deploying Office 365 in your company
If you are an IT guy in a small company (no more than 15-20 computers) you can install Office suite on each of the users’ machines manually or let them do it themselves directly from the Office 365 portal.
If there are more users and you want to gain more control over the software then you can download the Office 365 ProPlus to your on-premises network and then deploy it to all the users from there.
What level of the control do you gain if you choose the second way? You can control the following options:
- Which particular Office programs are set up.
- Where on the network Office is mounted from.
- Office 365 updates.
- The computers where Office 365 ProPlus is installed.

If you want to deploy Office 365 ProPlus from a local network share you should use Office Deployment tool. To be able to deploy everything seamlessly you will need to create a configuration XML file that sets up the rules for Office 365 deployment: which languages to set up, which programs to download, specify display options, etc.
