According to the official website, the Windows Insider Program for Business has been designed to "better support the IT Professionals and business users in our Insider community." By joining the program, IT admins will be able to incorporate Windows 10 Preview builds into their deployment plans and prepare their organizations for the next major Windows 10 updates. Here is what they can expect from the program:
You now have the option to download Windows 10 Insider Preview builds using your corporate credentials. This option will also increase the visibility of feedback submitted by you and others in your organization – especially on features that support your productivity and business needs. We’ll also help you deepen your connections with the IT Pro community, collect feedback within your organization, and resolve blocking or critical issues to better support your organization’s needs sooner.
If you're interested in the Windows Insider Program for Business, you can sign up on the dedicated website using your Azure Active Directory corporate credentials. Sound off in the comments if you expect many IT Pros to join the initiative.
