About our Topic
Windows as a service changes how we look at maintaining Windows 10 and testing our applications for compatibility in an operational context. Kevin Kaminski, a Windows and Devices MVP, will take you on a deeper dive as to what Windows as a service is and what it means for your organization. Most importantly we will look at how this impacts operations as Windows 10 is positioned as your last major Windows upgrade ever. We will also look into some of the troubleshooting and telemetries you can use to better understand your risks in your environment as you adopt Windows 10.
