The October update to the Microsoft Office365 Deployment Guide (MODG) on TechNet has been released. The PDF version from Download Center has been retired and redirects readers to TechNet.
The MODG has evolved as an online IT Pro deployment resource library on TechNet. It is being aligned to support OnRamp with content that is customer scenario driven and topics which also provide context-sensitive online help for “Learn More” links. Additional "reskit" information was also added such as Deployment tools, which provide abstracts and pointers to downloadable applications/scripts and accompanying documentation.
Over 30 topics were updated in this release, with significant improvements to the "Advanced Overview", "Network", and "Client planning" sections. The "Top Deployment Considerations" topic now contains the "Top Ways to Prepare for Office 365 Deployment" Wiki post.
