Surveys suss out Windows 10 enterprise migration timelines

August 4, 2016

Windows 10’s adoption in the enterprise will be critical to the OS’s success, especially from this point forward: The consumer-centric free upgrade offer has expired and the historic slump in PC shipments, mostly blamed on consumers’ refusal to buy new systems to replace aged ones, continues unabated.

Now that the consumer winds have calmed, businesses must begin deploying the operating system if growth is to continue. That will happen. But the question is: When?

The 300 polled by Adaptiva, a Seattle, Wash. systems management developer that specializes in enhancing the capabilities of Microsoft’s management and distribution platform — System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) — were optimistic. More than half asserted that over 50% of their company’s PCs would run Windows 10 within the next year.

“The people who we’re working with in that [migration] process seem to be moving at that pace,” confirmed Jim Souders, Adaptiva’s chief operating officer.
