Preparing your enterprise for Windows 10 as a Service, free training

Watch this Microsoft Virtual Academy Jump Start to learn how to take advantage of Windows 10 as a Service and what the implications are for your organization. This course discusses Windows Updates, Servicing, Windows 10 Deployment and Windows Insiders in considerable depth.

This just landed in my inbox and it’s too exciting not to share. We’ve just published the wildly popular (I get the stats) Preparing your enterprise for Windows 10 as a Service Jump Start on Microsoft Virtual Academy. In this Jump Start, I talk to Bill Karagounis, one of the engineering leaders at Microsoft behind the Windows Insiders program about some of the ways the program works. We chat about why Windows Insiders and the feedback they give are so important to the product team before Bill dives into why it’s so important the IT really understand what we’re doing Windows as a Service (and why, hint it’s your feedback). Next Michael Niehaus dives into how you get on the Windows 10 train!

Michael explains how Windows 10 has changes deployment and spells out your myriad options. There really is a deployment model now for every different scenario you could face.

Michael and I also explain how updates work in Windows 10 and what your options are for managing updates including WSUS, Windows Update for Business and Configuration Manager and some of the capabilities that MDM brings to the party too.

Win 10 course is now available On Demand

To give you a little “insider” knowledge about this course, while we were filming a small but totally crucial piece of equipment had a power failure. Michael and I had to stay behind and re-record the section that went into this on-demand version and I think it turned out a little better than the live version, the advantage of a second chance!
