Australian Department of Human Services achieves full Windows 10 deployment

More of Australian citizens can now get a faster and more personal access to Windows 10 services. Microsoft Consulting Services and Windows team together with Australia’s Department of Human Services recently achieved full Windows 10 deployment for its 35,000 employees in less than a year. This is reportedly the largest commercial deployment of Windows 10 in the Asia-Pacific region till date.

Mike Brett, General Manager, ICT Infrastructure at DHS gave a statement saying,

“Our last operating system upgrade of desktops and devices, took us almost three years. Upgrading to Windows 10 Enterprise proved surprisingly straightforward. By using Windows 10 in-place upgrades we started initially running 20,000 Windows 10 devices in just five weeks”.

Reportedly, the DHS employees were also facing some Wi-Fi connectivity issues on iPads.
