How will Windows 10 function and how it fits into Microsoft’s overall strategy.
Whats Up with Windows 10
By Windows Guides
In this guest post, Abby Perkins from Software Providers shares her insight into what’s coming with Windows 10 and how it will function for users of desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
Microsoft is a large company (the sixth biggest in the world by market cap), and its customer base reflects the company’s size. Unlike Apple’s customers, Microsoft’s tend to display less brand loyalty across products. The product that unifies all of Microsoft is the Windows operating system. Microsoft’s challenge with the upcoming release of Windows 10 is holding its large family of customers together. Here is how the tech giant plans on meeting everyone’s demands.
One operating system for all devices
Windows 10 will be designed to run on all devices. Microsoft believes its operating system is simple enough to run on the most basic smartphone yet sophisticated enough to keep businesses’ most demanding servers running smoothly. It has also designed the newest version of Windows to run on every size screen, from 4 inches to 80 inches.
Mobile device management for all
Many businesses already use mobile device management (MDM) to manage all portable devices used for work. Most MDM systems are specifically designed for mobile, however. There are not many smooth ways to move from a desktop computer or server to a smartphone. Windows 10 will change that—Microsoft is expanding MDM to all windows-based devices, including the immobile ones. Mobile is not just for mobile anymore!
