Windows 10 Updates and the Enterprise

What It Could Mean in Practical Terms

by Lane Shelton | 08.04.15

Windows 10 represents a significant evolution in the relationship between deploying the Windows OS and licensing the Windows OS. We’ve already seen other major changes to Windows licensing: the introduction of the user-based subscription, the ability to purchase an upgrade license to Windows Enterprise without the need for Software Assurance—and there are more changes to come. One of the most significant changes specific to Windows 10, however, is the way you’ll be consuming updates. Until Windows 10, there’s always been something of a dividing line between security updates and features updates. Security updates are quick and ongoing, while the features updates are rolled into big groupings—and deploying those is usually a heavy lift for IT.

Why You May Want to Upgrade Your Systems to Windows 10

by Jonathan Clark | 07.27.15

Interesting fact about Windows 10: it’s not going to work as well with a device that’s not Microsoft-created. So for all of us who have a fondness for products outside of the Microsoft realm, this is something to consider. On a broader scale—for business and enterprise—it may be a big deal.

Most of us are used to having the freedom to utilize our own devices—BYOD is virtually standard in many companies today, and employees may well expect it to be the norm. But working from home or the coffee shop down the street may soon mean bringing a company-owned device with you as Windows 10 enters the picture.

Should I Upgrade to Windows 10?

Here are four reasons the answer is “Yes.”

by Patrick Renzi | 07.23.15

There are some significant advantages if you choose to upgrade to Windows 10 sooner rather than later. Chances are good that if you’re utilizing Windows now, you’re going to need to upgrade to the new version eventually, but waiting is not in your best interest for a number of reasons.

Adding Mobile Computing to Your Business

Can Your Servers Handle It?

by Lane Shelton | 07.13.15

As organizations increasingly require access for a growing number of mobile devices, new workloads are required on back-office servers to integrate tablets and smartphones with existing applications, files, and functions. Organizations still running Windows Server 2003 may find they are unable to support the mobility functions that end users now demand to maintain a competitive edge.
