How IT Plans to Deploy Windows 10 and ConfigMgr

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 2016-01-20

As the use of Windows 10 becomes more widespread in the enterprise, so should Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr), according to a recent survey from Adaptiva, a provider of IT systems management offerings. Because Microsoft is ending support for Windows 8, Windows 10 is poised for tremendous growth. To assist with the transition, the majority of IT pros say they'll acquire the newest version of ConfigMgr, a tool most organizations already are using. However, they voice reservations about the time required to deploy ConfigMgr, as well as product maturity. They're also concerned whether frequent, incremental releases of ConfigMgr will increase workloads and slow productivity. "The new Microsoft ConfigMgr and Windows 10 releases are ushering in a need for a more automated, intelligent approach to systems management that reduces the time and complexity necessary to keep software and systems secure and up to date," said Jim Souders, Adaptiva chief operating officer. More than 125 enterprise IT pros took part in the research. Here are key highlights from the study.
