A newly published industry survey found that IT pros are proceeding apace with Windows 10 migrations.

The survey, conducted in May, fielded the opinions of 446 respondents as part of Adaptiva’s “2017 Windows 10 Enterprise Impact Study.”

The Windows 10 deployment plans of IT pros appear to be spilling into next year. According to the survey, 41 percent of participants said they’d get 51 percent of more devices migrated to Windows 10 within the next year.

IT pros were heavily represented in the survey. Almost half (46.86 percent) of the respondents were IT system administrators or other technical IT support personnel. The survey also included IT managers, CIOs and other IT personnel. Adaptiva used its customer base for the survey, so it tended to reflect the practices of larger enterprises. About 60 percent of those surveyed managed more than 1,000 systems and workstations.
