Gartner predicted that by the end of the year, 85 percent of all companies with work Windows 10 are. This means that switching over to Windows 10 goes much faster by equip as in previous versions .

“do see the need for the change on Windows 10. The evaluation and implementation time of Windows 10 has reduced compared to surveys conducted between 2015 and 2016, from 23 months to 21 months”, reported Ranjit Atwal, Research Director at Gartner. “Large companies plan to switch to Windows 10 or perform it until 2018.”

this delay explains that companies transform older software versions on Windows 10, or that companies replace older software versions, before switching to Windows 10 Atwal.

but seems this conversion in many cases without running off bigger problems. Gartner has asked companies for the study of the motivation for moving to Windows 10. About half of the company sees safety as a main reason. 38 percent, however, see benefits of an optimized cloud integration with Windows 10. Universal Windows apps on multiple devices such as PCs or tablets are for 34 percent of the companies an important argument, the end of support of Windows 7 in the year 2020 for 33 percent.  

“is Windows but not considered a pressing mission-critical project, therefore it is not surprising that a quarter of all companies budget problems expected”, as Atwal share.

not only Windows 10, but also devices that take full advantage of the benefits of the young OS, seem increasingly to attract, how research Gartner analyst Meike Escherich, principal the interest of the users: “The intention to buy equipment, has significantly increased.” For this, the third or fourth-generation devices that are optimized for Windows 10 with longer battery life, touch screens and other Windows-10 features are basic. “The intention to buy convertible notebooks, grows, because companies for testing and piloting phases now go over to buy this and install.”

the Gartner analyst advises manufacturers, that they should adopt a hybrid approach. In the mixed calculation of security, performance and mobility, as well as a low management overhead, also Windows 10 on a cloud could ARM processor be an interesting option for applications, require the long battery life. “Alternatively come new 2 in 1 products on the market and the Gartner survey shows that a need for integration with Android -smartphones is.”
