I'm opening a support ticket on this and will update when I have more information.

Hi, I personally used the Office telemetry tool that is designed for this purpose. It's quite easy to setup for a small organisation on a local device. For anything 20K+ devices I'd probably suggest using a proper database though.
If you still need to use LDMS so that you can build reports and schedule tasks based on inventory information I'd suggest adding registry entries to custom data. The registry keys for office addins are explained here. You'd probably need to setup a custom data entry for each office application you wish to report on though.
May I also suggest you add some entries similar to below for reporting purposes if you are intending on using Click to Run. You probably won't need as many as we have. We just cover all bases.
*note* Since we don't actually build reports using this data we have not bothered to model the data.
Thanks, Stewart...great info. Looks like we'll be deploying an Office Telemetry environment.
