Blog Article Published: 03/08/2017
By Jeremy Zoss, Managing Editor, Code42 It’s 2017, which means there’s a good chance your company is preparing to migrate to Windows 10. The operating system may have launched back in 2015, but this is the year that Gartner predicts enterprise adoption of the operating system will truly take off, hitting its peak in 2020. What caused the delay in adoption? Based on a Spiceworks survey, concerns included stability, application compatibility, and security. Perhaps the largest factor, however, was large corporations opting to combine their move to Windows 10 with a device migration. Typically, these purchases occur every two to four years, so may companies were simply waiting for the next hardware purchase cycle to switch to the new operating system.
