This is a bespoke service which will provide Windows 10 upgrade specialists like Testhouse to further address the compatibility of applications, drivers and hardware with Windows 10, paying more attention to the applications which were identified as incompatible from the results of Upgrade Analytics. Testhouse will then use a risk based approach by prioritising for business criticality.
This provides confidence to enterprise organisations that the upgrade will be smooth and result in minimal risk and downtime.This service will involve a pilot delivery followed by an organisation wide delivery and post upgrade monitoring.
Windows 10 is the last upgrade of its kind, in the future regular six month upgrades will be released and enterprises have to be ready to accept them. If you test this version with that in mind you can make life a lot easier for the future by bringing in automation. If a large percentage of a regression pack can be automated then the upgrade will become simpler and less time consuming. Testhouse’s strategy includes helping our clients build an automated regression test pack.
