Is Your Business Considering Upgrading to Windows 11?

Is Your Business Considering Upgrading to Windows 11?

Windows 11 has been released into the world, but has your organization embraced it yet? If not, you’re certainly not alone. Adoption for Windows 11 has been relatively slow, all things considered, and recent surveys and polls show that Windows 11’s adoption will proceed in this fashion–at least for the near future.

That said, there are some discrepancies between reports that show a rather sharp contrast between adoption rates. A report by AdDuplex shows an adoption rate of 8.9 percent, whereas Lansweeper reports an adoption rate of 0.21 percent. These discrepancies are not uncommon, as sample size and types of users assessed can play a significant role in determining just how low these numbers are. Still, it’s safe to assume that Windows 11 adoption is progressing much slower than expected.

The biggest reason for this lack of adoption appears to be the lack of urgency surrounding it, with the strict upgrade requirements also playing a role. Compared to its predecessor, Windows 10, Windows 11 is a much less comprehensive update, as well.

To bring Windows 11 to your computing infrastructure, you’ll have to meet the minimum system requirements:

  • 64-bit processors
  • 4 GB of memory
  • 64 GB of storage
  • UEFI Secure Boot
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) v2.0

The last two bullets definitely throw most users for a loop. Technical people tend to know how much RAM and what type of CPU they are running, but these hardware features are going to be an unexpected bottleneck for some users trying to upgrade.

It’s also worth noting that you shouldn’t just upgrade a workstation’s operating system without consulting with an IT person who understands the minutiae of your network, the software you use every day, and how the upgrade will impact your bottom line.

Your business might not be ready to adopt Windows 11, and that’s okay. While there is no immediate need to upgrade, Windows 10’s end-of-support date in 2025 will be here before we know it, and it never hurts to start thinking preemptively about how you can minimize the impact it will have on your business. Phantom Technology Solutions can help you make the necessary adjustments to your technology so that you can implement Windows 11 when it is time to do so.
