Overview

Windows 10 is the OS of the future and fundamentally changes how PCs and other devices will be used and supported in organizations. However, with different support periods set by Microsoft for Windows 7, each IT and procurement organization need to evaluate what hardware and software combination will best support their workforce if they are not ready to move to Windows 10 right away. Even purchasing new PCs to take advantage of performance improvements and new form factors while downgrading the OS may not be an optimal strategy going forward.

Read Gartner's take for impacts and top recommendations to help you with your OS upgrades.
