A new touch friendly desktop and new browser (EDGE) allows not only a really fast browsing experience but also the ability to make notes and share web pages.  Windows 10 offers greatly enhanced security and identity management with features such as Hello and Passport.  Plus ground breaking search and user interaction through Cortana’s integration with the Desktop and EDGE browser. The new features and cosmetic improvements are only the beginning.  Windows 10 will ultimately be a single operating system running across all types of devices from traditional desktops, tablets, hybrid devices, phones and IoT devices.

Microsoft has made fundamental core changes in Windows 10. Changing the way we consume the desktop to allow for a vast array of devices whilst reducing the management overhead and complexity.

Microsoft has also been building the infrastructure and putting the components in place to deliver Windows as a Service. They have removed the requirement for rip and replace upgrades, allowing new devices to be provisioned without re-installing pre-loaded operating systems.  User devices need never to connect to internal corporate networks and still be controlled and secured by IT departments.

Applications, new features and updates can all be delivered from Microsoft but controlled completely by internal IT resources, through the upcoming Windows Update for Business and Windows Store for Business and further leveraging Azure AD and Microsoft Intune.

In future blog updates we will cover the new user experience, Windows Update for Business and Servicing Branches, Windows 10 Desktop provisioning, Security with Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and building and supporting Windows as a Service.
