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.
