What’s next for Windows 10 in the enterprise?

Tuesday, Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Creators Update, which includes enhanced security features. Next on the agenda: Microsoft is testing the next major Windows 10 update due in 2017, Redstone 3.

Now, enterprise IT organizations can test such new builds of Windows 10 Enterprise. That’s because Microsoft also recently launched the Windows Insider Program for Business to accelerate enterprise adoption, reports InfoWorld.

Businesses have good reason to adopt Windows 10. Enterprises can save an estimated $515 per employee over three years, according to an updated analysis from Microsoft and Forrester.
