Microsoft hikes Windows 10 savings claims by 28%

Microsoft this week boosted by 28% its claim of how much enterprises can save by deploying Windows 10.

The revised estimate came from a Microsoft-commissioned analysis first done in mid-2016 by Forrester Research. Then, Forrester said the per-worker savings over a three-year stretch would be $404. To reach that number, the research firm interviewed four Microsoft customers that had begun moving to Windows 10, then modeled a hypothetical organization with 24,000 Windows devices, and a large number of mobile workers among the 20,000 employees. Using that pretend company, Forrester forecast the difference between running Windows 10 and retaining Windows 7.

Late last year, Forrester interviewed another quartet of Windows early 10 adopters, then added that data to what it had originally. The new per-employee savings: $515 over three years, a jump of almost a third.

“This updated study helps provide further evidence that Windows 10 can drive significant cost savings,” said Craig Dewar, a director of marketing on the Windows Commercial team, in a Tuesday post to a company blog.
