Windows 10 Adoption: One Year Later
August 1, 2016
Among the 300 IT professionals recently polled by Adaptiva, an IT systems management company, the majority (76 percent) said that the Aug. 2 update isn’t persuading them to upgrade to Windows 10. In addition to the Bash Unix shell, the update includes built-in threat detection and data protection capabilities, among other business-centric features.
Nonetheless, there are signs that adoption will ramp up, helping make 2017 a banner year for Windows 10. According to Adaptiva’s survey, 64 percent of IT professionals plan to make the switch over the next 12 months. Currently, app compatibility (68 percent) and time constraints (62 percent) rank among the top reasons holding up Windows 10 adoption at most enterprises.
