The rollout of a new Windows operating system is a complex undertaking. Large business or small, there’s much to consider: balancing the benefits of the new operating system’s features and functionality against the risks of potential business disruption, employee resistance to change, and cost. When considering such a move, the two critical questions that must be answered are 1) Are the long-term gains worth the short-term risks; and if so, 2) When is the right time to pull the trigger?
Given the advantages of Windows 10 over previous versions, my team and I concluded the answers to those questions were an unequivocal YES and NOW. For those of you currently assessing your own migration to Windows 10, or already in the beginning stages, over the course of this blog series I’m going to share both the technical processes and philosophical aspects Dell IT is navigating as we go through our deployment. The detailed planning, the timelines, the testing, the results from early user experience, and especially the mis-steps along the way—I'll cover all these in detail in future posts. I'll also highlight Dell’s tools and products used to assess our readiness and make rapid deployment and adoption a reality.
Our decision to adopt Windows 10 came down to four core elements:
Dell is committed to migrating 30 percent of our Windows endpoints to Windows 10 by the end of this calendar year, and to be 100 percent complete by the end of 2017. As the newly awarded Windows 10 Deployment Partner of the Year by Microsoft, we know there’s a significant amount of planning required before, during and post-deployment. If you’re beginning to think about your own rollout of Windows 10 and worried you’re behind, you’re not. But now is the time to prepare and get started.
What are some of the concerns you’re having about your own enterprise-wide Windows 10 deployment?
