Windows 10 upgrade

Windows 10 upgrade and Document Management

Microsoft launched its newest PC operation system Windows 10 on July 29th.  What makes this release unique is that some Windows 7 & 8 users will be able to upgrade their operating system for free, at least for the time being according to a Forbes article by Gordon Kelly READ MORE.  According to a Microsoft blog post dated 7/30/2015 Microsoft saw 14 million people downloading Windows 10 in the first 24 hours which crushes the Windows 8 release which 4 million units where sold in 4 days.  So it is safe to say that Windows 10 is trending in the right direction and will be adopted by enterprise level organizations.


So what does that mean for document management and document management software?

Well lets first look at the document creation tools that are used by business, the Microsoft Office suite.  Microsoft is being very clear about its plan for Microsoft Office applications and the role they’re due to play in what they’re proclaiming as the “reinvention of productivity”. With the rise of mobile work environments, applications such as Microsoft Office needs to be seamless and integrated no matter where work is being done.   According to David Roe of “The Office Mobile Apps – Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote – are built from the ground up for touchscreens. they come with familiar interfaces that will enable mobile workers to use them just as they would from desktop apps.  They are also fully connected to OneDrive, which lets users access their stored documents whenever and where ever they need them.” READ MORE  What this means for you and I is that now it doesn’t matter if you are in an office, a cube farm, at home, or on a beach the connection and integration of the Windows 10 applications will make it easier to produce documents in a consistent format making document management easier on an organization.

If you are an organization that is currently using a DMS (document management software) and are planning to upgrade to Windows 10, check with your software provider to see if you will need any additional updates to ensure a headache free upgrade process.
