Windows Servicing

Keeping Windows up-to-date is critical for cyber security and the productivity of end users. However, the rate of change has never been higher – IT operations teams are facing 4x the effort than before moving to Windows 10.

Challenge

Windows 10 servicing puts a huge load on IT teams: getting to Windows 10 is difficult for most, but to remain supported and secure, they need to build automation systems that can do the same upgrade to all endpoints twice a year. In addition to these significant overhauls, they have to keep up-to-date with monthly security updates, break/fix builds, provisioning new devices, and other regular changes.

Impact

IT teams aren’t used to this scale or pace of change. The indefinite expansion of these teams is not a realistic solution either: this would simply be too expensive and ultimately impossible to scale.

Managing updates is hard for endpoints in an office and even harder for those working remotely. Ignoring updates isn’t an option, but without the right technology, IT will either have to increase their risk profile or delay other projects.

Solution

However you upgrade to Windows 10 – via hardware replacement, in-place upgrades, or clean installs – it represents a fantastic opportunity to your IT team. In order to take enduring advantage, you should plan an automated Windows Servicing solution that will accelerate validation and deployment of the 6-monthly Feature Updates and handle all the other daily servicing operations.

Your organization will stay safe, end-users will face less disruption, and IT can get on with valuable business initiative projects.
