You might have heard it before: Most large organizations will upgrade to Windows 10 in the coming 12 months. To be more precise, 64% of businesses are planning to roll out the latest version of Windows 10 in 2017. So, for many IT project managers, much of their daily lives will center around Windows 10 migration in the next two years.
However, rolling out a new Operating System to (tens of) thousands of users is complex and requires a lot of upfront planning and preparation. In fact, based on our experience of readying more than 5 million assets for successful migration, we have concluded that almost 80% of an enterprise-size migration project is consumed by planning and readiness tasks, not in the technical task of migration itself. And since the the average project runs between 44 to 124 weeks, you have to have gone through some of the readiness steps already to position your organization to finish in 2017.
