Hey,

 

Is it a good practise to deploy Windows 10 quality updates and Office patches together for our 90,000 client machines globally.Please advise,what all prerequisites should be met,if we need to acheive this without having high percentage of failed updates.

@lramya, thanks for the question.   There isn't a formal "best practice" to recommend; some organizations deploy the Windows and Office updates together, while others separate them.   The two main factors are the bandwidth that you have available - especially with most people working remotely and having to rely and various bandwidth availability - and your regular testing processes with rings ahead of time.
