When Microsoft publishes a new Office 365 proplus client update to the Office Content Delivery Network (CDN), Microsoft simultaneously publishes an update package to Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). Then, SCCM synchronizes the Office 365 ProPlus client update from the WSUS catalog to the site server. SCCM can then download the update and distribute it to distribution points selected by the administrator.
