Hey, What’s This Cloud Doing in My Windows?
Windows 10 and Office 2016

With the latest releases of their core business product set, Microsoft has significantly advanced the strategy defined by former CEO Steve Ballmer as “Software with a Service.” The newest Windows and Office put their cloud integration capabilities front and center, demanding your firm undertake a careful consideration of cloud services to get the most out of the products. Indeed, dismissing the ‘cloudiness’ in Windows 10 and Office 2016 requires a deliberate act of defiance. While many firms are evaluating and testing cloud services, most are not ready to jump in with both feet and will want to strip out these cloud integration points to keep their applications and content safely stored within their own infrastructure.

We will explore the tantalizing benefits the cloud brings to Windows 10 and Office 2016, but also provide detailed guidance on how to remove the cloud from what is likely to be your next desktop.

As a separate topic, we’ll address one of the biggest issues presented by any desktop deployment project — the effective delivery and management of user applications, settings and data. FSLogix provides an innovative and simplified solution in this arena which solves many of the challenges firms have struggled to overcome with legacy application virtualization solutions.
