HP has launched its suite of enterprise services for Windows 10 in Australia. The objective is to provide organisations with the tools to test out the new Microsoft OS in a controlled environment before deciding on a wider rollout across their businesses along with assistance with a full deployment.

According to a statement by HP, what's valuable about the new enterprise services for WIndows 10 is that in-house IT departments and developers can validate the portfolio of apps before a mass rollout to their organisations to lower "the cost and risk of large scale migrations".
The collection of enterprise services include:
- HP Test Drive services for Windows 10
This service allows customers that are contemplating a Windows 10 migration to test it out with a control group of users to evaluate the viability of the OS for their companies. HP will provide Windows 10 PC or tablet hardware for the test subjects.
- HP Transformation Services for Windows 10 A collection of services for organisations to assess, design, implement, deploy and support Windows 10.
- HP Roadmap Service for Windows 10 This delivers a base roadmap for organisations implementing Windows 10 focusing on productivity, security and management.
- HP WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11
An implementation and migration service "to ensure an organisation’s critical web applications built for legacy versions of Internet Explorer will continue to function effectively in the latest browsers and operating systems", according to HP.
No doubt other vendors with a services arm will progressively bring out offerings to help businesses on their Windows 10 migration path. There are already service providers out there capable of doing so. If you are interested in what HP has to offer, visit the company's website for more information.
