This will be important with the rise of convertible PCs, which can switch between being a laptop and tablet and also prove useful when adapting to serve both mouse-keyboard and touchscreen controls. The tried and true Microsoft Office also still works best on Windows, which remains the preferred application suite among employees.

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.

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.
