Every now and then I will see a user in the macadmin slack ask about packaging and deploying SPSS for macOS. For some reason, it is just one of those applications that everyone (including myself) always seem to struggle with. That being said, here is how I do it.
Our environment is a little funky. In addition to still having Office 2011 out in the wild, we never deployed Office 2016 as a suite. This meant that users could choose to install Word or Excel or PowerPoint individually.
Historically, for Office 2016, we would push out updates individually for each application and just use smart groups in Jamf Pro to target those updates.
