Windows 10 Could Save Firms Thousands
A recent study has determined that switching to Windows 10 could save businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars.

(CCM) — In a bid to further push its Windows 10 update as efficient and, therefore profitable, Microsoft recently commissioned a consulting firm to outline the cost benefits of the service. Forrester Consulting performed a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study on Windows 10 and found that businesses who adopted the service early on were racking up savings in unexpected ways. One key feature that contributed to this finding is the fact that Windows 10 allows for much more self-sufficiency than competing programs, freeing up roughly 15% of IT services' time and energy. The firm also discovered that, when used to its full potential, Windows 10's built-in security features could garner a business nearly $700,000 a year in savings. These two elements, coupled with the estimated 25% increase in employee productivity, spell a much more cost-efficient workplace for Windows 10 users.

The release of this study's findings comes on the heels of Microsoft's announcement of an Aug. 2 date for Windows 10's Anniversary Update. The update will usher in a slew of new features, including additions to Cortana's capabilities as well as to user security.
