Deploying Windows* 10 on Intel® Architecture-Based Laptops

Executive Overview Microsoft Windows* 10 works synergistically with laptops based on 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, resulting in more battery life and a new user experience. Intel IT's accelerated adoption of Windows* 10 is helping us achieve the following business objectives: • Single Windows-client environment • Transition to a continually updated OS model, avoiding the disruption... and downtime associated with major OS upgrades • Smooth deployment of new OS features through our new in-place, self-service upgrade process • Foundation for a more modern cloud-friendly IT services platform. To provide the highest value, we refresh a user's PC with the latest Intel® architecture-based platform at the same time as we upgrade to Windows* 10. To date, we have over 50,000 devices on Windows* 10. The majority of these are new systems based on 6th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors. We are now qualifying 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor-based systems with Windows* 10 and we will begin deployment in Q2'17. We have also made available a self-service upgrade process from Windows* 8.1 to Windows* 10, and are preparing for widespread deployment. We expect to have over 70,000 PCs running Windows* 10 by end of 2017.
