A couple weeks ago, we sponsored a virtual tradeshow with IT Pro Today (formerly Windows IT Pro) where 1,000 techs signed up to attend the show all about “Preparing for Windows 7 End of Life.”
Windows 7? Really? Since Windows 10 has been out for a couple years, I tend to find myself thinking that there can’t be that many companies still running Windows 7. I was hesitant to sign us up for this one, but we decided to give it a chance. Boy am I glad we did.
The conversations were great and the questions poured in. We also had a 1-hour breakout session where we could share all that we’ve learned about migrating to Windows 10, especially the nitpicky details about how to build out your golden Windows 10 reference machine.
Perhaps more importantly (and often overlooked until IT is swarming with unhappy users), we were able to share our take on how to manage Windows 10 Updates. The reality is that relying on the Windows 10 Update schedule from Microsoft can lead to unexpected end user downtime and an increase in IT troubleshooting hours.
Catch Spencer, Allen, and Erik in this webcast recording for the full rundown on all things migrating and managing Windows 10.
