Webinar Description:

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has upended the traditional deployment of Windows and has thrown a wrench into the standard release cycle that the company followed for many years. Everything has changed, from multiple large updates arriving each year to volume licensing and reimaging rights. It’s imperative that you know how these changes are affecting real-world environments.
