Exploring MS Teams.

Deployment methods: 

You can deploy each and everysingle app individually on each and every single device.
Deploy 365 apps:using click to run. Admins can user the office 365 client configuration service to create a config file in the cloud that specifies the Microsoft 365 apps that are installed.
Deploy Microsoft 365 apps from a local source.
Download the files on to a local sever and push out the apps without using external connection.
