Windows 10 provides little incentive for IT to upgrade

From InformationWeek

"This month's Windows 10 Anniversary OS release from Microsoft isn't proving to be a huge motivator for upgrading and a spike in Windows 10 deployment isn't expected until early 2017, according to a survey of more than 300 IT personnel by systems management specialist Adaptiva.

The update will be one of the biggest to arrive on Windows 10 since it was released to the general public on July 29, 2015. Since then, Microsoft reports its newest OS is running on 350 million devices and that users have spent more than 135 billion hours on it.

The Adaptiva survey, which was released August 1, found that 63% of enterprises plan to wait at least six months to upgrade and slightly more than three-quarters of respondents (76%) reported that the anniversary update, which Microsoft plans to release Tuesday, August 2, was not increasing their sense of urgency.

However, 39% of those working in large enterprises reported that it is encouraging them to migrate sooner and the overall survey indicated that while there is steady pressure to migrate to Windows 10, most companies don't consider that pressure to be extreme.”
