LiveTiles Mosaic is deployed using a dedicated app called LiveTiles Mosaic Manager. The app handles the deployment of the LiveTiles subsite and associated assets into your chosen SharePoint site collection.
The Manager app is also used to uninstall the solution from an environment.
Once deployed most of the functionality of LiveTiles Mosaic is delivered centrally from a content delivery network (CDN) minimising the need for app updates.
