HP has released new Windows 10 services to help enterprise customers control the risks and costs with moving across to the new operating system.
The new Windows 10 services include: HP test drive; transformation services; roadmap service and WebApp accelerator service for Internet Explorer 11.
"IT and developers get to validate the application portfolio in advance -- lowering the cost and risk of a large scale migration, and the user sees innovation and a more personal computing experience," HP South Pacific enterprise services general manager, Nick Wilson, said. HP test drive services for Windows 10 allows customers to test the new operating system with a control group of users to evaluate the new user experience, capabilities and potential incompatibilities in advance of any wholesale migration. Transformation services for Windows 10 can assess, design, implement, deploy and support Windows 10 as part of a digital workplace transformation. The service will build and integrate supporting infrastructure, transform client and web applications for the new environment, build operating system images and manage the rollout. Roadmap service for Windows 10 delivers a base roadmap for the organisation's Windows 10 implementation with key focus areas in productivity, security and manageability improvements as well as designing how Windows 10 fits into a broader digital workplace transformation opportunity. HP WebApp accelerator service for Internet Explorer 11 is an implementation and migration service to ensure that an organisation's critical web applications built for legacy versions of Internet Explorer will continue to function effectively in the latest browsers and operating systems. HP test drive, roadmap and WebApp accelerator service for IE11 are now available. The transformation services will be available October 1.
This adds to HP's portfolio of services for the Microsoft enterprise environment which includes enterprise services for Office 365; readiness workshop for Office 365, enterprise mobility suite and Skype for Business.
