Microsoft has reimagined each part of the process, to maintain a consistent Windows 10 experience for the customers.
Windows as a Service is a new concept, introduced with the release of Windows 10. Windows 10 gains new functionality with twice-per-year feature update releases. Initially, organisations will use these feature update releases for pilot deployments to ensure compatibility with existing applications and infrastructure. All releases of Windows 10 have 18 months of servicing for all editions – these updates provide security and feature updates for the release.
When you are ready to deploy Windows you should have the following:
- A clear understanding of necessary personnel and their roles and criteria for rating app readiness.
- A plan for testing and validating apps.
- An assessment of your deployment infrastructure and definitions for operational readiness.
- A deployment plan that defines the rings you want to use.
