comment How should applications be developed for easy deployment?
In that scenario, I would definitely agree with you about auto-update. In fact, I would say you're in hell no matter what, unless you are willing to invest a small fortune in tools and/or people. I lived your life once or twice already. 3600 remote PCs in three states spread across 300 locations. I understand the problem space quite well. As long as apps are distributed, there is no silver bullet. Re-centralization, or technologies that "fake it" (e..g auto-update) are the light at end of the tunnel. They just need to evolve a bit more.
