Large Cloud-Based Directory

Windows 10 offers a useful multi-tenant cloud-based directory via its Azure Active Directory service. This provides mobile workers and IT departments' single sign-on access to a number of SaaS applications such as Dropbox, Office356 and Salesforce, while also reducing the amount of passwords users need to remember.

According to IDC, mobile workers will account for 72.3 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2020. And with enterprise mobility in high demand, Microsoft is going all-in to penetrate the market with its Windows 10 mobile operating system to better serve developers and IT departments.

While Microsoft has certainly lost some of its dominance, users are starting to realize that alternative operative systems are great for consuming content but not necessarily for content creation and management. Windows 10, on the other hand, looks more attractive in the management sense since it's focused on cross-device interoperability, which caters well toward mobile workers.

For enterprises that already have experience with Microsoft, it may be a relatively easy choice to upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile; for companies that are new to it, Windows 10 would serve as a worthwhile investment. Retriever Communications has identified five benefits of using Windows 10 to boost enterprise mobility.
