What Windows 10 will do for your business

Windows 10 is an entirely new version of the long standing Windows operating system, bringing real benefits for your business.

Whether using a tablet, handset or a laptop, work styles today mean our experiences need to be personal, efficient and mobile and we need a compatible OS (Operating System) to make this happen.

The latest Windows OS comprises all of these qualities, providing substantial cloud based tools that you can scale up or down depending on your business needs.

Here are some key benefits for businesses upgrading to Windows 10:

 

1. A Familiar Interface

As with the consumer version of Windows 10, we see the return of the Start button!

Windows 10 bridges the gap between the touch-optimised tablet and the desktop experience, bringing a familiar interface that begins at the desktop and enhances existing productivity features, allowing modern apps to run in a window on the desktop. 

 

2. One Universal Windows Experience

Windows 10 delivers one comprehensive app platform, one security model, and one deployment and management approach to create a universal experience across devices. 

This allows you to work in a flexible way no matter where you are or what device you are using. Whether it’s an individual device or an 80” touch-screen conference room display, Windows 10 provides a consistent, compatible experience.

 

3. Advanced Security and Management

The biggest news for IT staff are the improvements around security and management. 

The new Windows OS has a range of advancements in security and identity protection that will help ensure the security of your data when moving from device to device.

 

4. Improved Device Management

Windows 10 is about continuing the prominence of the Windows desktop in the enterprise. Taking the power of Active Directory and System Center to enable complete control over Windows devices, the new OS brings built in mobile device management capabilities and cloud based functionality to conventional laptops and desktops.

 

5. Compatibility for Continuous Innovation

Windows 10 aims to reduce the need for the time-consuming and costly wipe-and-reload approach to OS deployment. The OS strives to have great compatibility with all existing apps and has new tools for compatibility testing. Through new dynamic provisioning capabilities, businesses will be able to configure off-the-shelf devices, without re-imaging.

 

Currently, Microsoft has confirmed that their new OS is running on over 1.5 million business PC’s since its release in July…
