Low Implementation Risk

Microsoft is working hard to help transition existing apps without requiring much change and effort through their MS' four-project initiatives (Astoria, Centennial, Islandwood and Westminster). This helps to reconnect to enterprise customers that have drifted away and attract companies that aren't invested in Microsoft yet. This initiative also helps developers transition their Android, older Windows, iOS and web apps. While using this approach may not be a long-term one for developers, it at least allows them to try out the platform without committing too much effort and investment.

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.
