Basic features in Exchange Online undermine case for third-party backups

We all know about the reports issued by companies that seek to create the need for their product. Various deficiencies are identified that just happen to be filled by the product in question and all is well in the world for those fortunate and erudite customers who seize the opportunity to purchase and deploy the product.

How quickly do you intend to upgrade your company's computers to Windows 10?

Microsoft will make the Enterprise SKUs available on August 1st for companies wishing to deploy Windows 10 to corporate computers. But, just how quickly do company's intend to deploy Windows 10?

A bigger update this fall (possibly October) should bring more robust business features to Windows 10, so many companies will most likely take a wait-and-see attitude. Its early days, but we're wondering how much thought has already gone into Windows 10 planning.

Take a quick second to participate in the following poll...

For consumers, this should be no big deal since they can't opt-out of updates anyway. But, for businesses, this could be a big deal and is yet another thing that Microsoft seems to be "taking away" from IT. 

Is having full disclosure of what's included in each update important?
