When the Stars Align – Office365 and Windows Release Schedules

Posted on Updated on

This week Microsoft announced that Windows 10, Office 365 and System Center Configuration Manager would align their release schedules. They are looking at a spring and fall release most likely in March and September. This is great news for businesses that have being struggling to adapt to the new Windows-as-a-Service model align with Office-as-a-Service. There are definitely inter-dependencies between Windows and Office as well as SCCM the tool commonly used to deploy, update and manage both Windows and Office.

From an IT Management perspective, organizations have been trying to accelerate the engineering efforts previously put into Windows and Office deployments and operationalize the process but the various product release schedules with low predictability have made it difficult. This should help by providing regular milestones and predictability. Good Job Microsoft.
