Microsoft’s Enterprise Insiders program helps shape Windows 10

As part of the November update announcement, Terry Myerson took time to thank both Windows Insiders, and a group of Enterprise Insiders, for helping to shape Windows 10.  Some of those Enterprise Insiders include Daimler, NESTLE, KPMG, Hendrick Motorsports, Virgin Atlantic, and the PGA Tour, who invested thousands of hours testing and providing feedback on Windows 10.

Microsoft has published deployment guidance, based partially on the work of the Enterprise Insiders, and giving other enterprises the benefits of the lessons learned from these companies, and will continue to update the guidance as more enterprises deploy Windows 10.

Microsoft made a number of enterprise ready features available with this new update, including the release of Windows Update for Business, Windows Store for Business, as well as new capabilities including mobile device management and Azure Active Directory join.  The November update also allows enterprise customers to turn off all telemetry data, something that is not possible with home or pro versions of the software, although home users can constrain what Windows 10 can send back to Microsoft, and Microsoft is currently testing ways to separate consumer data from corporate data in the enterprise.
