During the past quarter, Microsoft was focussed on preparing the next major version of Windows 10, which we expect to be released October. As such, amongst other recommendations, this briefing includes reference to a readiness checklist for upgrading Windows 10.
From a device perspective, new dual-screen Android devices made headlines globally (initially only available in the US). Other news revolves around capabilities on improving Windows 10 on ARM-powered devices. We provide recommendations around these announcements along with suggestions on identifying if the upcoming support for two 4K displays on Tiger Lake Intel chips will be of value to your organisation.
Lastly, from a device management perspective, Microsoft continues to pave the way to transition capabilities to their cloud platform. The release of new features is significant and the challenge for technology leaders is to ensure their support teams are not left behind from the changes, and thus only experiencing the negatives and none of the benefits. We provide recommendations aligned with managing this risk.
The next quarterly report will be released in early January 2021, to receive an alert when it is published use the form in the left sidebar.
