Paradigm Change

It is well known that one of the new key features of Windows 10 is that it is not replaced after three or four years by a new major release (Windows as a Service).

Microsoft has designed the rollout of upgrades in waves by first distributing new features onto computers where errors and incompatibilities will cause the least damage. Only then follow most corporate PCs and finally the systems with critical applications.

Migration to Windows 10

When companies migrate their PCs to Windows 10, they are jumping quasi onto a moving train. Although the significantly improved in-place upgrade eases the migration to new versions, IT managers have to deal with the constant updating of the client PCs within relatively short intervals.

Servicing Branches

In practice, upgrades are offered in different Servicing Branches:

  • Initial builds from Windows Insider Program
  • Current Branch (CB)
  • Current Branch for Business (CBB)
  • Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB)

For particularly critical systems, companies can consider the use of Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB for which Microsoft provides 10 years of support without delivering any feature upgrades. Hence, every company should ascertain the appropriate servicing option for their class of computers. This assessment will help optimize the companies' required licensing and support costs.
