	If you are simply talking about automatically installing updates. You
could do something with writing scripts that will install the patches
when users login to their systems. (Of course, this would mean at least
temporarily providing those users with Administrative rights.)

	All of which could be done with carefully written scripts. It wouldn't
be simple to implement, but it would work and it would save your company
the costs of licensing a Windows Server system and CALs.
