Windows 10 First Look

March 23, 2015 from 9:30 – 11:30 at 701 Carnegie Center MPR B & C

For organizations and their employees, Windows 10 may very well become Microsoft's greatest platform ever made. Windows 10 is not only more familiar from a user experience standpoint, but it also includes so much of what businesses need—including enterprise-grade security, identity and information protection features, which reduces complexity and proves a better experience for the modern needs of business. Microsoft has even simplified management and deployment to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or 8 that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete and are delivering continued improvements based on customer feedback.
