Why IT will love Windows 10

Rob Enderle | Oct. 7, 2014
Yes, the interface is a big improvement over Windows 8. The real appeal of Windows 10, though, might be the user and device management features that should have IT departments excited.

Windows 10 Should Be a Keeper
On cadence, Windows 10 should be in line with Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows 98. Consider it a keeper.

As I said, you'll want to look at some rather compelling additional features specifically targeting IT. To that end, Microsoft has launched the Windows Insider program to get feedback early in the launch cycle, which is expected to conclude around mid-2015. Get some of your people in this program so they stay up to date on what's coming and make your unique wants and needs known to Microsoft. That way you can be better prepared if users ask for this platform on their then new PCs. Unlike Windows 8 and Vista, I think you'll like Windows 10, as it seems to address much of what we found annoying with Windows 8. It gives us something to look forward to.
