Windows Upgrade Analytics, a cloud-based service that allows you to quickly identify the critical issues impeding your upgrade to Windows 10 available since July this year, today, received two new features as part of update.
The features help in assess the compatibility of applications include “site discovery” and “integration with Ready for Windows”.
For current user of Upgrade Analytics, “Ready for Windows will work without any additional configuration necessary,” microsoft said. And, to take advantage of Site discovery, “you will need to explicitly enable this by opting in your client computers,” microsoft added.
“Site discovery” data is based on the previously-released Internet Explorer Site discovery toolkit. “This data collection is disabled by default and only sent when the device has been opted-in via registry or Upgrade Analytics Deployment Script,” writes Microsoft.
And, “Ready for Windows” website intended for IT managers, lists software applications that are supported and broadly adopted on Windows 10 for their deployments. Integration with Upgrade Analytics means “you’ll be able to see adoption and vendor support status for applications used by your enterprise,” company said.
Both features are publicly available right now.
Also, a new Windows as a service guidance is published to help organizations better understand Windows as a service.
The documentation includes details about WaaS, as well as specific guidance for implementing it using existing tools like System Center Configuration Manager, WSUS, and Windows Update for Business, and for leveraging BranchCache and Delivery Optimization to effectively deliver the quality and feature updates using peer-to-peer distribution.
