Surveys Reveal Various Windows 10 Migration Priorities

August 3, 2016

Migrating PCs to Windows 10 is the top end user computing priority of VMware customers, according to the results of a survey published yesterday. Yet another survey by systems management software supplier Adaptiva found more than three quarters see no urgency to upgrade, with 64 percent saying they’ll upgrade within the next year.

With any survey, it depends on who you ask. VMware polled organizations of various sizes from small businesses to large enterprises. Adaptiva’s customers are typically very large enterprises that use Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager.

Naturally, both companies timed the release of their findings in concert with Microsoft’s release of its Windows 10 “anniversary update,” which, for many IT decision makers, is the equivalent of what historically was known as the operating system’s first service pack. IT organizations typically wait for that first major update before embarking on major upgrades to the new operating system. Interestingly, only 30 percent of the 300 Adaptiva customers with more than 10,000 seats say the anniversary update is signaling them to upgrade right away.
