Windows 10 adoption on IT's docket for 2016

LAS VEGAS -- Windows 10 adoption is in plenty of IT shops' sights, with most organizations in the early days of planning a migration.

Enterprise uptake is typically slower than consumer when a new Windows operating system comes out, and Windows 10 is no different. IT pros here at Citrix Synergy 2016 discussed their Windows 10 adoption plans and shared some of the obstacles preventing a quick migration.

IT needs to ensure that all its applications are compatible with Windows 10 before the move, for instance, said Sheranga Jayasinghe, IT director at Sunrise Health in Saskatchewan. It requires a lot of testing to determine OS compatibility, especially with legacy apps.

Still, some IT shops are starting to adopt the OS for small groups, with plans for wider scale adoption.

"We're starting to see an uptick," said Jack Gold, principal and founder of J. Gold Associates, a mobile analyst firm in Northborough, Mass. "It won't be instantaneous like everybody thought it would be, but all the indicators are that companies are actually taking Windows 10 very seriously."
