Workplace Automation: Defined Less Than 100 Words

Tue, 06 July 2021 - By

In a recent vendor briefing with Gartner, they mentioned that many large enterprises are getting stuck on Windows 10 1809 because they have not been able to streamline and automate the processes required for efficient Workplace Automation, such as app packaging, app testing, deployment scheduling, reporting, readiness checks, and many others.

Those processes are still largely manually driven, completed in isolation (teams operating within silos), and often without proper velocity planning. This is highly inefficient and unsustainable given the massive volume and increasing pace of change that needs to be managed! Consequently, not keeping up causes loss of productivity, potential security vulnerabilities and possible business disruption, a bad end-user technology experience, and lower employee satisfaction.

Workplace Automation sets out to solve all this by keeping your IT estate tightly managed and constantly up-to-date. But what exactly is Workplace Automation? Below, I tried to define it in layman terms using 100 words or less (I managed in 54 words).

The Impact Of Windows Virtual Desktop On Your Application Management Strategy

Thu, 27 May 2021 - By

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is a super hot topic with our customers right now as it promises to enable Work-From-Anywhere strategies securely and productively while drastically reducing the licensing and infrastructure costs required versus previous cloud desktop offerings. It also simplifies IT management and keeps your applications and users more secure as there are fewer opportunities for vulnerabilities. 

But what many organizations don't understand until they are committed is that moving onto this new Microsoft virtualization offering has big implications on your application management strategy. Without technology like WVD, organizations would be stuck creating several gold images and testing applications against multiple OS environments, resulting in a constant struggle to keep track of constant updates, version control, etc. for on-premise applications.

What Heads Of Workplace Needs To Know About Windows Virtual Desktop

Tue, 11 May 2021 - By

To many, Microsoft's Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is still a mystery. Although it has been around since 2019 and demand for it increased drastically over the last year when employees suddenly found themselves working from home full time, many organizations still don't fully understand it or don't have it on their radar as something they possibly need to implement.

And if you do research it, it is all too easy to get lost in the technical detail. If you are working in the Modern Workplace, Business-as-Usual, or on an IT Transformation team and you find yourself thinking that WVD is something your boss should explore further, then this post is for you. We define what Windows Virtual Desktop is (in less than 100 words using non-technical language) and map out three things any Head of Workplace needs to know now.

Sorry, Microsoft's Cloud PC Won't Solve Your Constant Upgrade Problem

Thu, 06 May 2021 - By

In early June of last year, on their public career page, Microsoft posted a job opening for a program manager for their Microsoft Cloud PC team. In the post, Microsoft gave few details and simply described Cloud PC as a "modern, elastic, cloud-based Windows experience [that] will allow organizations to stay current in a more simplistic and scalable manner". 

Today, I want to explain how the Cloud PC anticipation fits into Microsoft's already-existing virtualization strategy, highlight exactly what we know so far about Cloud PC, and — given the limited amount of information — take a stab at the impact that I think Cloud PC will have on your constant upgrade problem (or, as we call it, your need for Evergreen IT).

5 Non-Technical Skills Your Business-as-Usual IT Team Must Have To Avoid Becoming Obsolete In This New As-A-Service World

Tue, 04 May 2021 - By

(Originally published on Oct. 3rd, 2017, updated on May 5th, 2021)

If you ask a bunch of different CIOs what is the biggest barrier to achieving his/her goals, you will likely hear the same answer: the current IT skill gap! 

However, this isn't as simple as the IT skill gap that the industry faced in the past 2 decades. For twenty years, we encouraged young men and women in universities around the globe to learn about Object-Oriented Programming, Network Technologies, Web Services, and Service-Oriented Architecture, and within a few years, there were plenty of programmers, network specialists, and other IT professionals available to satisfy the demands.

What To Make Of The Windows 11 / Sun Valley Rumors

Thu, 10 June 2021 - By

For months, there have been hints. Microsoft watchers like Mary J. Foley, Zac Bowden, and Tom Warren have been talking about an upcoming "big update" for at least twelve months. Now, Microsoft announced that on June 24th, 2021 at 11 am EST they will provide more details about their upcoming "next generation of Windows". But should we expect a completely new OS?

For the past five and a half years, we at Juriba have documented Microsoft's Windows 10 Release and End-of-Life Dates and analyzed any Service Channel updates. For example, in 2019 we wrote about the fact that Microsoft made 19H2 a cumulative update and decoupled new features from its bi-annual Feature Updates starting with its 20H1 release. While we have to wait for June 24th, 2021 for the official announcements, I wanted to quickly do a write-up of what we actually know and put things in perspective.

Spoiler alert: Don't panic (yet).

Microsoft's COVID-19-Related Changes To Windows 10, Office 365, And More

Mon, 06 April 2020 - By

It's hard to keep up with the news these days as things move so rapidly in this unprecedented and uncertain time. But there are also rays of hope. Companies are finding innovative ways to serve their customers, extending leniencies in terms of support and payment plans, or even finding new ways how their products and services can be applied in this new working environment.

Microsoft has trickled out several announcements over the last few weeks regarding their Windows 10 support model, release schedule changes, and more. While you might have seen one or two already, we will summarize all of them below because you have other things to do right now than read two dozen news articles.

The Real-World Cost Of Running A Windows 10 Upgrade

Mon, 03 February 2020 - By

Now that Windows 7 is a thing of the past, enterprises have no choice but to complete their Windows 10 migrations — and with that, get on the treadmill of Windows 10 upgrade management as Microsoft is releasing two major feature upgrades every year: one in spring (18 months support) and one in fall (30 months support).

Microsoft's preferred way for organizations to manage their Windows-as-a-Service is to adopt an Evergreen IT approach that allows you to organize your IT environment in such a way that you can upgrade all of your users within six to nine months in Business-as-Usual mode.

This blog post has been updated as of May 2021, and will continue to be updated when there are changes to Windows 10 release and EOL dates, and other major revisions.

Over the last few years, Microsoft has changed the EOL dates of its Windows 10 versions — some of them multiple times — leading to confusion as to when specific versions are actually going to finish their support cycle. A lot of the confusion is due to the following facts:

Microsoft Decouples New Features From Windows 10 Feature Releases

The Basics Of Planning Your Enterprise Desktop Migration to Windows 10

Thu, 30 January 2020 - By

While Windows 10 was touted initially as the fastest adopted OS in Microsoft history and Gartner predicted that 80% of enterprises would have completed or at least started their migration by the end of 2018, Windows 10 reached more than 50 percent market share in August 2019 — more than four years after its initial release! 

As of January 14th, 2020, Windows 7 is officially dead. While you can buy extended support until 2023, every month you are not moving to Windows 10 is going to cost you dearly. In addition to the pricey ESU fees, you are exposing your environment to security vulnerabilities that can result in costly data breaches, malware attacks, or other problems. Your employee technology experience will decline, resulting in lower talent retention rates as well as productivity loss. And the list goes on. The point is, enterprises simply cannot afford to not upgrade as quickly as possible.

What Is The Difference Between The Office 365 Enterprise Plans?

Wed, 10 March 2021 - By

Last month we wrote a detailed post about the different update channels to choose from for Microsoft 365 (Office 365 ProPlus) based on your organization's needs, as well as the name changes that have occurred in the products over the last year. Now we are updating this post about the different plan options that Microsoft has for enterprises. We will be discussing Office 365 E1, E3, and E5, Microsoft Apps for enterprise, and Microsoft 365 E3, E5, F1, and F3. From pricing to productivity to security, each plan offers a deeper or more shallow dive into the Microsoft ecosystem.

How To Make Complex O365 Migrations A Simple 2-Click Process

Thu, 04 February 2021 - By

There is no doubt that Microsoft 365 (M365) is one of the biggest drivers for revenue and new business at the moment for Microsoft. Due to the pandemic and the shift to remote work, Microsoft Teams usage has grown by 894% since the pandemic began (Aternity). According to Forrester, remote work levels will settle in at about three times more than what they were pre-pandemic by the end of 2021. This means that enterprises now need to move quickly to a more permanent solution to keep employees happy and productivity up.

But organizations with complex on-premise email environments who are looking to move to M365 are finding the transition rocky and cumbersome if done using spreadsheets or cobbled together databases.

But there is a better (and much faster) way! Over the past few years, we at Juriba have been fortunate to help enterprises manage several very large and complex Exchange on-premise to Microsoft 365 migration projects — readying more than one million mailboxes for migration so far. This allowed us to fine tune an already highly automated (and therefore accelerated) transformation process — condensing dozens of manual, repetitive, and labour-intensive tasks into a simple 2-click process. Here is how it is done.

Microsoft's Readiness Toolkit for Office Add-Ins and VBA Macros

Tue, 21 July 2020 - By

Office 365, Microsoft's SaaS version of its Office Suite, has grown even more popular in recent months. Organizations, especially those that have already moved over to Windows 10, are starting or planning to adopt Office 365 across their IT environment. The move to Office 365 also needs to go fast for enterprises that are still running Office 2010, as that product goes end-of-life in October, and there will be no extended support from Microsoft.

Taking the above into consideration, many businesses have turned to Microsoft's Readiness Toolkit for Office add-ins and VBA (hereafter referred to as Readiness Toolkit) to help prepare for the migration. This post will take a closer look at what the Readiness Toolkit is, what it can and can't do, and how to maximize its potential.

How To Manage Windows 10 & Office 365 ProPlus Servicing: A Data Model

Mon, 14 May 2018 - By

Over the past few years, we have seen our fair share of failed and dangerously inefficient enterprise attempts to keep Windows 10 and Office 365 Servicing up-to-date. Often, the organization took longer than anticipated to run through the first initial migration, skipped an update to come up for air, just to drown under the workload of the feature update roll out, for which it had vastly underestimated the risk and work effort. Ever worse, these updates are often managed manually, with antiquated and inadequate project management practices!

Office 2019: Is Now The Right Time To Upgrade Your On-Premise Office Estate To Office 365 ProPlus?

Mon, 09 April 2018 - By

If you recently tried to find anything on Microsoft Office — for example on the enterprise section of Office.com — you might have noticed that there isn't much mention of Microsoft's on-premise productivity application suite anymore.

The vast majority of Microsoft's marketing communication and sales conversation is about Office 365! This is not an oversight or a temporary marketing campaign — but rather a strategic push to move enterprise customers away from the perpetually licensed Office fat client and onto the subscription-based, always up-to-date Office 365. Moreover, now that Office 2019 is about to be released, many enterprises are asking themselves: "Should we consider Office 2019, or is it not the right time to switch to Office 365 ProPlus?"

Is Bimodal IT The Answer To Your Windows-as-a-Service Management Problem?

Wed, 14 February 2018 - By

If you look at how IT traditionally spent its investment dollars, there would be a distinct requirement for a positive return on investment by the end of the first three years. Many were long-term IT investments that would determine how you would operate in the next ten to twelve years, and resulted in the definition of many established IT management practices.

But those ancient IT processes and policies used to manage legacy apps are inadequate to handle modern technology updates. Today, most enterprises are much more agile, having moved applications into the cloud, or utilizing the power of Software-as-a-Service. However, most are still maintaining a layer of dinosaur legacy applications and other mission-critical on-premise software in massive data centers. Since most IT organizations are unable or unwilling to change how they manage IT, they still use IT processes and policies that date back more than twenty years!

Is Your Organization Ready For Ongoing Self-Service IT Migration? Take Our Quiz To Find Out.

Thu, 14 December 2017 - By

The quality of customer service has a massive impact on how consumers interact with the service provider — whether that provider is an internal department, an outsource partner, or a company providing goods and services externally. Studies have shown that one out of two customers will stop doing business with a company because of a poor service experience.

That is why most consumers, 71% in fact, prefer firms that give them the ability to solve most service issues on their own. While this might not surprise you, it might shock you to know that an astonishing 38% of consumers would rather clean a toilet than speak to a customer service representative!

Why Now Is The Right Time To (Re-)Consider Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Fri, 30 September 2016 - By

A few weeks ago, we spoke about the Digital Workplace and how it came a long way from being an abstract concept that a lot of companies saw value in, but did not have the technology to support their needs properly, to becoming a reality for a lot of enterprises as they embraced server-hosted virtual desktops.

As organizations are now embarking on their Windows 10 migrations, as well as considering Evergreen IT as a long-term IT goal in order to become more agile, scalable and flexible, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is experiencing a technology-induced revival. It's been a much slower adoption than many analysts expected, but more companies are now virtualizing desktops than ever before!

Gartner expected the hosted virtual desktop market to grow to 76 million users by the end of this year. And it seems the growth is not slowing down anytime soon. Most analysts forecast anywhere from 8.9% CAGR (IDC for the entire VCC market) up to 27% (depending on the analysts' definition of VDI) during the period 2016-2020.

MSIX: Why Enterprises Aren't (Yet) Banking On The Future Of App Packaging

Tue, 19 January 2021 - By

A few weeks ago, I attended the Flexera's Application Packaging Roundtable webinar about MSIX which was very interesting and included application management people from both customer organizations and service integrators. It got me thinking: Microsoft has been touting MSIX for two years now and despite the tremendous benefits the new packaging format brings, it seems like neither software vendors or end-user enterprises have really embraced it yet.

There is no doubt in my mind that MSIX is the future of application packaging — so why haven't enterprises fully bought into it yet? What are the roadblocks they are facing? Let's have a closer look at that today.

Should You Use Desktop Analytics To Manage Your Windows 10 Servicing?

Wed, 28 April 2021 - By

With so many Enterprises stuck on version 1809 of Windows 10, it is not surprising to see organizations looking towards the open market to find a solution to the ongoing Windows 10 update problem. Microsoft has a well-oiled pitch to leverage Desktop Analytics as the means for managing this sometimes complex upgrade process. Upon first glance, their proposal makes a lot of sense: it is a free Microsoft-developed service that is specifically designed to provide "insight and intelligence for you to make more informed decisions about the update readiness of your Windows clients."

However, many large organizations find out very quickly that, while the tool gives useful data, it is by no means sufficient to manage the entire process. This leads to a lot of wasted time and resources and, of course, frustration. Today, I want to map out the delta between Desktop Analytics and Juriba Dashworks, a dedicated Windows Servicing Management tool, and provide our recommendations for how you can still utilize Microsoft's free service in the most efficient way. To do this, I want to compare some of the functionality side by side. This won't be an exhaustive list, but it will touch on the key aspects.
