Slow adoption of operating systems is not uncommon. According to netmarketshare.com, over 7 percent of global endpoints continue to use Windows XP, even though Microsoft ended support in 2014.
Microsoft has had mixed reactions and success with their operating system releases over the years. Windows XP was solid and reliable. Vista was forgettable. Windows 7 was (and is) reliable and liked by both IT and end users. Windows 8, without a start menu, was a release that both IT and end users want to forget!
And now—Windows 10. It was introduced in 2015. It’s not clear yet how successful it will be, but it is clear that Microsoft is putting a tremendous effort into encouraging adoption. And, according to Dimensional Research, only 10 percent of companies have Windows 10 in full production, 38 percent of IT organizations plan to migrate to Windows 10 within the next two years, 35 percent plan to migrate in the next year, and 14 percent have not yet established a migration timeline.
But, with the security risks looming official as Windows 7 support ends, the time is now to start proactively planning your Windows 10 migration. And part of that planning includes defining the roadblocks you’re likely to face. We’ve got you covered!
