In its latest survey report, Gartner claims that about 85 percent of enterprises will successfully migrate to Windows 10 by the end of 2017.
“Organisations recognise the need to move to Windows 10, and the total time to both evaluate and deploy Windows 10 has shortened from 23 months to 21 months between surveys that Gartner did during 2015 and 2016,” said Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner.
The most popular reason which about 49 percent of respondents gave was the ‘security improvements’. Further, about 38 percent of the respondents attributed the cloud integration of Windows 10. However, this might not be same for households and individuals. The reasons for which Windows 10 has become this popular amongst the enterprises might not extend to individuals. While security might be one of the priorities, Individuals generally migrate to a new OS for better performance, stability and new features. Windows 10 is way lighter on memory than previous OS versions, but it is probably not the most stable update Windows has ever rolled out. For the features, it surely offers a new simpler design along with better performance.
Ranjit also added, “Large businesses are either already engaged in Windows 10 upgrades or have delayed upgrading until 2018. This likely reflects the transition of legacy applications to Windows 10 or replacing those legacy applications before Windows 10 migration takes place.”
The survey was conducted among 1014 respondents from six countries from India, China, UK, US, France and Brazil. While enterprises might have their own taste, what do you think?
