  1. 1. How Windows 10 is enabling the digital workplace
  2. 2. Foreword Enterprises are accelerating their efforts to implement technologies and tools that enable new and more powerful ways to work, anywhere, any time, on any device. Windows 10 is a platform with the features and capabilities that more fully enable a high-performance digital workplace. The platform encompasses a broad range of options for your organization that will create more employee engagement, increase workforce productivity and deliver more security and self-service options. What can Windows 10 bring to your business? Within this booklet our experts highlights some of the new features. Do not hesitate to contact us or one of our experts to learn more.

  4. 4. 3 Much has been said and written about Windows 10 and what it will offer. Most of the times these articles are focused on the consumer features, leaving features that matter for enterprises underexposed. As a CEO or CMO, what opportunities can the next big Windows release bring your business? Why would you care if you’re a CTO and need to decide when to migrate all users of your organization to a new OS? I’ll give you 10 reasons: 1. One Windows Windows 10 is the convergence of the Windows server, desktop, phone and gaming operating systems into one. This means one single core that runs on all kinds of devices and adapts to provide an optimized experience. It allows for more flexibility and brings more options to what a digital workplace looks like. A hybrid like the Surface Pro is one on those examples and more variations will follow. Your employees choose how they want to work. 2. The Last Version Of Windows Windows 10 is promised to be the last version of Windows. Microsoft is committed to continuously innovate Windows while making sure your critical business applications continue to work. Always. For you and your organization this may be a huge shift: you no longer need to worry about exhausting and expensive upgrades but instead focus on adding value to your business. 3. Continuum Continuum is what Microsoft calls the flexibility of the Windows 10 platform to adapt to its context. When you fold back the keyboard of the Surface, the experience optimizes for tablet and touch usage. The touch area’s become larger and apps continue to run full screen. This intelligence is inherently built into the OS, which means you can even connect your phone to a monitor, keyboard and mouse and continue to use it as your primary workstation. 4. Universal Apps As the OS scales with the context in which it’s used, the apps running on Windows 10 will be scaled as well. Windows Universal Apps are applications that can run on all devices, big and small. They support various input options like touch, mouse, voice or gestures and adapt their user interface to show more or less information based on the size of the display and distance of the user from the screen. 5. The Best of Windows 7 and Windows 8 Windows 10 combines the best of Windows 7 and 8. It brings back the enterprise productivity features from Windows 7, like the much requested Start Menu and windowed applications, while remaining touch friendly and flexible. It is even improved in each and every area. 6. Private Enterprise App Store Distributing enterprise apps to your users and contracted partners is a hassle that belongs to the past thanks to the private app store that comes with Windows 10. A private app store is a designated area in the Windows store for your organization where you can publish your organization’s apps. You control access to your employees and contracted partners through Active Directory and Microsoft accounts. 7. Cloud Active Directory Windows 10 devices can directly connect to Azure Active Directory. This removes the requirement for enterprises to have an Active Directory on premise. Users will be able to log on to Windows with Azure AD accounts, and they’ll be able to mix both AD and Azure AD together. 10 reasons why Windows 10 matters to your organization
  5. 5. 4 8. Single Management Solution With Windows 10 all corporate owned devices can be managed by a single Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution like Intune. With Windows 8 this used to be only available for “Bring Your Own Device” BYOD scenario’s. The new MDM additions include support for managing devices that are shared by multiple users, VPN and device-wipe capabilities, and Enterprise Data Protection configuration. 9. Identity Protection and Access Control Windows 10 comes with multi-factor authentication built-in, thereby eliminating the need for additional hardware security peripherals like tokens and smartcards. This means that any device running Windows 10 can be become one of the two factors required for authentication. The other factor will be a PIN or biometric, such as a fingerprint. 10. Data Loss Prevention The Data Loss Prevention solution separates corporate and personal data on a device and protects it using containment. This capability integrates with the default user experience, enabling protection without interfering with the user like other solutions do. Your users continue with their work, while the system makes sure no sensitive data leaks. This is done by automatically encrypting corporate apps, data, e-mail, website content and other sensitive information. These are just 10 of the many reasons why Windows 10 should matter to your organization. What reason is the most relevant to you and your organization? Sander Schutten Mobility Lead at Avanade
  6. 6. 5 Will you be able to do all your work from your phone with Windows 10? When you compare the computing power of new smartphones with the average workstations that people use at work, it appears these phones should technically be powerful enough to run all applications you would normally use at work including Microsoft office, a web browser or most line of business applications. In a lot of enterprises it is already possible to access data from your companies premise through mobile device management solutions and there is a big movement of data being moved to the cloud for example with Office 365. So what prevents us from using our phone as a workstation? The simple answer being that our phones aren’t made for this purpose. They have small screens and no input devices other than the touch screen which isn’t really good for writing documents or editing Excel spread sheets. With Windows 10 Microsoft is going to change all this with a feature called “Continuum”. All phones running Windows 10 Mobile will be able to connect to a screen (wireless via Miracast or wired through USB-C) and connect the phone with a mouse and keyboard. In addition they will be able to add Hardware Apps built for Windows 10 that will run on any device from phone to tablet, PC, Xbox or even the HoloLens. These universal Windows 10 apps will be able to scale from small to large screens enabling you to run applications like Excel on full screen, just like you would see on your PC when you connect your phone to a PC screen. Except that it now runs on your smartphone. When you connect the phone to a larger screen with Continuum you can even set the touch screen of the phone to turn into a trackpad like your laptop to control your mouse pointer. When developing Windows 10 apps developers have to take into mind that their application will be able to run on several screen sizes so they have to make their apps adapt to all these scenarios. Luckily Microsoft added several new features for developers to make these tasks easier. Having a phone as your main workstation makes offices with flexible workplaces a lot easier. Your data, applications, settings and personal preferences are always with you on your phone (or in the Cloud) and you can work anywhere where there is a monitor, mouse and keyboard. What about you: will you be able work from your phone, or would you still need a full workstation? Geert van der Cruijsen Senior Consultant Mobile Application Development at Avanade
  7. 7. 6 When Microsoft announced that Windows 10 is not just being limited to desktop, laptop, tablet and phone, but will be expanded to IOT (Internet of Things) devices, they also introduced a complete new device running on Windows 10: HoloLens. HoloLens is a combination of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). With VR a virtual world is created which replaces the ‘real’ world with the virtual world. A good example of a VR device is the Oculus Rift. When you put on the Oculus Rift VR glasses you’re ready to start exploring a complete new virtual world. AR is a more common form of interaction. We see it a lot on television and smartphones with apps like Layar. AR is adding an extra layer of information on top of the real world. For example you can add a virtual world record line on the pool during a swimming contest. HoloLens combines the virtual world with the real world and creates a mixed reality. The best thing about HoloLens is that it goes beyond the screen and uses your world as a canvas to project holograms, like they are standing on a physical object. And they are not projected statically, you can actually interact with them. Resize the hologram, walk around it and interact with it. All in real-time. HoloLens opens up thousands of scenarios that previously where only imaginable in movies. The HoloLens doesn’t have a screen. Interaction with holograms is therefore done with gestures, your voice and your eyes. The HoloLens is able to ‘see’ what you are looking at, and therefore it is useful as an interaction method to select, or to point, at things in the most natural way. If you look at the HoloLens as a device, it looks like a pair of giant sunglasses with a headband. The HoloLens is packed with advanced sensors to capture information about what you’re doing and the environment you’re in. The high definition lenses are used to project the holograms. At the heart of the device is the holographic processing unit which is custom developed to process all the data coming from the sensors in real time. And all of this untethered and wireless, to give you the maximum freedom to walk around and move freely. From a development perspective there isn’t much information available about the HoloLens. There also aren’t many HoloLenses available for testing. What we do know is that any Windows 10 app can run on the HoloLens and that it can be projected somewhere in the room. (We have seen some demos of Skype and movie apps being projected on the wall) Another point of attention is that the HoloLens won’t be the only device being able to run Windows 10 Holographic. Any other vendor that builds a holographic computing device (and complies with the hardware requirements which are not available right now) could run Windows 10 with holographic capabilities on it. There are still a lot of questions about HoloLens and Windows 10 Holographic and how developers can build apps for it. However, Microsoft is revealing more and more information and I’m excited to see that holograms are really coming to life and bringing complete new interaction patterns. It is still unclear which use cases are best for holograms, but it has potential for various business cases to benefit from hologram usage in multiple areas. Good candidates for HoloLens areas are gaming, business, science and education. On the HoloLens website are a few business cases with real world partners that looks very promising.

  8. 8. 7 The term Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) first entered common use in 2009. The following years lots of companies struggle to implement different BYOD scenarios. On the one hand there’s the need for IT to secure company devices to prevent data leakage, and on the other hand business need to get things done anywhere and on any device. Windows 10 contains built-in features that enables the platform for the next generation digital workplace. Supported by Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite, organizations can create a user centric strategy while securing company data. Windows 10 can join Azure Active Directory at the first boot of the device and management is enabled automatically. After the so called ‘Cloud Domain Join’ your devices and applications are managed by Intune or a hybrid solution where Configuration Manager is integrated with Intune. In order to enable employees to use their company resources it is necessary they meet specific security standards. Policies are enforced as soon as devices are enrolled. By using conditional access you can prevent access for devices that do not meet security standards. Mobile Application Management (MAM) ensures company data can only be accessed by managed applications like Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word or your own line-of-business applications. MAM isn’t available for Windows 10 yet, but likely it will be later this year. I received a message on Twitter that MAM might become available when Windows 10 Mobile is launched. These features make it possible for employees to enroll their private or company owned devices without the need for being in the office. It will also enable them to work anywhere on any device while IT organizations are ensured of secured devices with protected company data. It is good we can secure all Windows 10 devices with just one set of policies knowing that Windows 10 will be shipped with desktops, laptops, tablets, phones and even IoT devices. Please be aware that support for the new and existing features of Windows 10 are still under development. Intune will be updated in monthly service update releases where System Center Configuration Manager 2016 will be generally available in Q4 2015. Can’t wait to see what’s new? A 60-day evaluation of the System Center 2016 Technical Preview 2 is available on Technet Evaluation Center.

  9. 9. 8 A commonly heard downside of the mobile Windows ecosystem is that the Windows store does not have the same amount of apps compared to the Apple app store or the Google Play store. Since the release of Windows Phone 7 in 2010 Microsoft is struggling to even the score with their 2 competitors. Fact is the Windows Phone market share isn’t as high (though it’s still increasing) as the iOS and Android market. Therefore people that build apps are less interested in investing in apps for this platform. This causes a lower market share of Windows Phone because of the availability of these apps. As you can see these 2 issues have a relation to each other and with Windows 10 Microsoft has found a solution to solve this dilemma. Windows 10 makes it super easy for Android and iOS app developers to also publish their apps to Windows. Microsoft calls these projects “app bridges” and has made 4 of them to make it easier for everyone to publish iOS and Android apps into the Windows store. Next to iOS and Android, Microsoft is also looking into adding Web applications to the Windows store, together with the possibility to add desktop apps made with .Net and Win32 for people to download and install. These new app bridges are still in development and some are open for preview, but for now it seems Android apps should be able to run without changing anything to their code. iOS apps only need to recompile their app for Windows and Microsoft is also making it possible to add Windows specific features such as live tiles and push notifications, using the tools developers are used building Android or iOS apps. With web apps getting improved, Project Westminster promises lots of potential as well and it gives web app builders a lot of features to make their web app feel like a native app. With simple additions using Javascript you can also have live tiles, push notifications and other Windows app specific features in your web app making the web app feel more native to the OS. Microsoft is still using code names for the app bridges. Below are all links to the 4 app bridges that will be available in Windows 10: • “Project Astoria” enables developers to bring their Android code to Windows • “Project Centennial” for classic Windows platform code (e.g., .NET, Win32, etc.) • “Project Islandwood” allows developers to bring their iOS code to the Universal Windows Platform • “Project Westminster” enables developers to bring their website to the Windows Store. I think it’s a smart choice that Microsoft enables these bridges to fill the Windows App Store even more. By increasing the numbers of apps in the Windows app store Microsoft will finally be able compete with iOS and Android on an App numbers level so one of the biggest downsides of the Mobile Windows ecosystem can be removed shortly. Microsoft is bridging the app gap with Windows 10 Geert van der Cruijsen Senior Consultant Mobile application development at Avanade
  10. 10. 9 The Internet of Things (IoT): one of the biggest IT trends that businesses and enterprises are investing in at the moment. Connected devices and big data coming in from a large range of sensors is becoming essential to outsmart competitors or to keep improving your business processes. Windows 10 IoT can be the platform to build your IoT solutions. It doesn’t matter if you are a large enterprise or a maker in your garage: Windows 10 IoT can run on devices you have. Last week Microsoft released the first final release of Windows 10 IoT which is the Windows 10 version that can run on devices such as the Raspberry pi or other industry ready devices that are built into things like ATMs or are powering warehouses. Windows 10 IoT can run applications that are built using the same technology stack as the apps running on your tablet and phone which makes it really easy for developers that start building IoT apps because they can just use the C# skills they already have. The number of devices building up the Internet of Things is growing rapidly, predictions range from 20 to 50 Billion devices connected by 2020. Microsoft is ready for this rapid growth with Windows 10 IoT running on these devices. Azure can connect all these devices together and makes it possible to store and use of all the data these devices gather. Windows 10 IoT for Businesses Microsoft has been empowering devices for 20 years with several versions of the Windows platform for embedded devices. Windows 10 as a platform is running on all sorts of devices from tablets, pc, Xbox, phone and now small IoT devices as well. Microsoft will release three versions of Windows 10 IoT: one for small devices without a shell such as the Raspberry Pi and also two other versions that contain a shell for mobile devices such as industrial scanners and desktop like devices such as ATMs. All apps built for Windows 10 IoT can be build using the Universal Windows app platform that developers also use for building mobile or tablet apps. The apps should even be able to run on these small devices because they all use the same Windows 10 core. Windows 10 IoT for Makers People automating things in their home as a hobby is becoming more and more popular. These “Makers” can start building apps that control their lights, doors, alarms, coffee maker, robots or other things in and around there house if they have some basic C# programming skills and a Raspberry Pi 2 worth 35$. Microsoft has created lots of samples for people who like to become a “Maker” on I’ve tried it for myself and it’s really fun to build a simple app within a couple of hours that can do various things with sensors, lights, switches and motors. It’s also a great fun way for students to build fun projects. “Every Company is a data company” I think Microsoft was smart to jump into the IoT space with Windows 10 and combining it with the power of Azure to connect these Things on the internet. This gives them an important position in the IoT World. In the next couple of years you will see things change because of the Internet of Things. Data that is currently unavailable will become priceless for cases such as predictive maintenance or improving production, sales or any other process. This article on a blog from Microsoft gives a great example on “Connected Cows” to give you an idea of where we are going. What kind of solutions can you think of that will improve your business by using sensors, data and the IoT?

  11. 11. 10 Microsoft introduced the Windows Store upon the release of Windows 8. It provides easy access to multiple applications (apps). One limitation was that these apps could only run in full-screen mode with limited interaction with ‘desktop apps’. Windows changes it all for the better. Now in Windows 10 the Windows Store apps can run on the desktop and alongside ‘desktop apps’. And there is more! Windows 10 will deliver one Windows Store for all Windows devices, making it easier for developers to create one universal app to be used on phone, tablet and PC form factors. Users will have the same great experience regardless of their form factor of choice. Control and flexibility for any business Large companies tend to aim for control of applications which can be installed on their computers. The increased control and flexibility in the Windows Store for Business lets administrators acquire applications via a web-based Store Portal and publish these apps in the Business Store. Installation of a published app is as simple as clicking a link in a customizable email or by browsing the Windows Store. And, best of all, there is no longer a requirement to use a Microsoft account. This makes management and control so much easier. Interaction with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Intune and third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions allow businesses to manage the installation of apps, updates, licensing and the ability to automatically install apps from an on- premises-based server. Smaller companies usually do not have the infrastructure to create and maintain a private company portal. For these companies it will be easier than ever to control and manage their apps using their own private section within the Windows Store. This private section can deploy apps that have been acquired through the Store Portal or apps selected by their administrator from the Windows Store. Even specific custom line of business apps can be added to the private section of the Windows Store for controlled distribution to employees. As a key component of enterprise mobility, the new Business Store enables IT departments to customize the Windows Store and better manage the delivery of apps to users throughout their organization. Windows Store for Business: highly customizable, flexible and useable for any business! Ralph Blokpoel Microsoft Infrastructure Consultant at Avanade
  12. 12. 11 You probably have heard many news reports recently about stolen credentials by hackers and the consequences this has for businesses. There are many ways to get access to account information; from an employee using a simple password which can be easily guessed or found with dictionary attacks to more sophisticated techniques like pass the hash. With Windows 10, Microsoft helps organisations to protect their corporate data with features like Windows Hello and Microsoft Passport. With Windows Hello you can login with fingerprint, iris scan or face recognition which is more secure than a password. There will be no need any more to remember passwords, which simplifies the process for users. Furthermore, Microsoft Passport is integrated to enable multifactor authentication (MFA) and authentication to various services on premises and in the cloud, without sending a password over the wire. Microsoft Passport makes it easy to have 2 or more factors for authentication where you will need a registered device and your unlock code/gesture (like fingerprint) to get access to your corporate services. How does it work? To create a Microsoft Passport you can take any device with Windows 10. The first time you logon to Azure/ Active Directory*, you need to register your device to make sure the device is owned by you. You can do this by logging in with an Azure/AD account and for example a phone call for Multi factor authentication. After a successful authentication to Azure your device will create a private and public key pair and will be marked as a valid device for accessing the corporate data. The private key will be saved in the hardware TPM chip on your device and the public key will be saved in Azure or local Active Directory. If you don’t have a TMP chip available in your device it is still possible to use Microsoft Passport, but this is less secure. Besides creating the private and public key you need to choose a way to unlock your device/Microsoft Passport. This can be decided by your company as a policy or you can choose for the Windows Hello features like iris scan or a PIN. To use Microsoft Passport you need to go your service where you want to login. Your device will initiate the authentication process and you will be asked to use your gesture that will unlock the TPM chip and send an authentication request to Azure/local AD. This authentication request is without any username or password. Azure will send the device a “nonce” which is a onetime used number, the nonce will be signed by the private key on your device and send back to Azure. Azure will compare this with your saved public key in Azure and if this is verified you will receive your authentication token to login. The main advantage in using Microsoft Passport is that if someone steels your password or PIN they still cannot access any corporate service without steeling your device. If someone steels your device too, you can easily block the device in Azure so trying to authenticate with the device will fail. If your device is managed by a Mobile Device Management solution the device can be wiped as well. In my opinion this is the next generation login which is highly secure and easy to use. *At the moment of writing it is not yet possible to use Windows Server AD for Microsoft Passport. Support will come later when Windows Server 2016 is released. Secure your identity with Windows 10 Nils van Woensel Microsoft Infrastructure Senior Analyst at Avanade
  13. 13. 12 Windows 10, more secure than ever In the last couple of years lots of the Fortune 500 were infiltrated and had their data stolen, while the breaches remained undetected. Data leaks also happen from within, through their own employees. Stroz Friedberg* reports that 58% of senior managers have accidentally sent sensitive information to the wrong person. To prevent this from happening, Microsoft has improved Windows 10 with various new security features, focusing on 4 major subjects. Secure Devices Microsoft tightens the screws with Windows 10 by giving manufactures a choice to remove the option to disable EUFI secure boot, while enabling secure boot for Windows mobile devices. As a result the devices can only be run by an approved and assigned OS by Microsoft. Secured Identities Windows Hello replaces weak password protection with biometric authentication by face recognition, iris scan or fingerprint. Microsoft Passport creates a unique asymmetrical key that Windows 10 can generate, and stores this in the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Your device will then be used as a virtual smartcard, instead of using expensive PKI infrastructure. This ensures a two factor authentication where your device is the tangible factor and the pin something you know. Microsoft Passport integrates with other services and platforms, and logs you on without passwords being sent over the wire. Threat Resistance With Device Guard you are better protected against Advanced Persistent Threats. According to the Windows Defender Team 96% of malware is unsinged software. Device Guard checks the code integrity of the software using kernel mode code integrity in a virtual secure environment which is powered by Hyper-V and isolated from the Operating System. Even with a compromised system you cannot run unsigned software. Next to that your user access tokens will be saved in the secure environment as well, preventing attacker techniques such as ‘Pass the Hash’ attacks. With these attacks the attacker has access to resources by impersonating the user’s identity without the need to know the user’s actual credentials. Information protection Enterprise Data Protection is a default feature in Windows 10 enabling containerization techniques that separates corporate data and your personal data, even within the same folder on your device. Your corporate documents will be automatically encrypted and on top of that you can enable Microsoft RMS with sharing protection to securely share your corporate data. The encryption and rights travel with the storage system, so copying corporate data to USB or external cloud services like Dropbox won’t compromise the encryption. The improved security features that come with Windows 10 are easy to use and ensures optimal protection of your assets. I would definitely recommend using them in this mobile first, cloud first world. Nils van Woensel Microsoft Infrastructure Senior Analyst at Avanade
  14. 14. 13 Being online has become embedded in our lives, checking e-mails, buying from online stores and sharing our thoughts on social media. Each service requiring different credentials with its own complexity requirements and retention settings. For the average user, estimated to have 19 passwords[1] , you can guess there is a challenge as users re-use (a set of) credentials at multiple services, users write down lists of credentials and use weak(er) passwords that allow them to remember them easily. So, how can we enable any user to safely use the servicesathandwithouttheriskofbeingcompromised? Microsoft has incorporated some technologies in Windows 10, to make things more secure without losing sight of the user. Bye Password… After installing Windows 10 on his machine and logging in with his Microsoft Account, the user is encouraged to create a PIN to access his device. As this PIN can only be used by one user to log into one machine Microsoft argues this is a safer practice over entering your password. The PIN provides a more user-friendly experience and is easily to remember for the user, but what if you could just login by looking at your machine? …Hi Windows Hello! Windows Hello is a biometric framework embedded in Windows 10 that allows the system to use biometric information of a user to login to the machine and supporting (web) services. As with the PIN example above, the combination of one machine and you, identified with a biometric attribute, will provide access. If you have a fingerprint reader and Windows 10 installed, you can already start using Windows Hello. In my tests I was able to login using my fingerprint, not ground breaking, but being able to do so without requiring 3rd party software and a challenging setup. This easy way of working suggests quick adoption could be on its way. The most interesting option is the one to login by just looking at your machine. Windows 10 supports this method of authentication but does require specific hardware to allow a user to do so. Intel has developed their RealSense 3D camera, which fully supports Windows Hello. This camera uses infra-red and laser technology to create a 3D image of your face. Login in by using a printed picture of your face won’t work. To know which devices have such a camera you can check: devices with Intel RealSense. What about… Microsoft Passport? With Microsoft project ‘Passport’, combined with Windows Hello, users will be able to access / sign-in onto their favourite websites using their PIN, face, iris or fingerprint. Looking at the enterprise, Active Directory and Azure AD will support Microsoft Passport. My colleague Nils van Woensel wrote a blog about it: windows-10-nils-van-woensel The future looks user- and password friendly. Hello future! Hello Windows Hello! Windows Hello makes the future user- and password friendly Maarten Smid
  15. 15. 14 In the digital world where bring your own device, working from home and the need of sharing data is growing, data security becomes more and more important. In the past all data was stored within the company’s walls and only accessible at the company. Nowadays employees demand that data is accessible everywhere so they can read their mail, create documents and check financial information on every device. If not supported by IT, employees will find their own solution. Stroz Friedberg reports that 87% of senior managers regularly upload work files to personal email or cloud account. New features in Windows 10, Enterprise Data Protection (EDP) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP), enable you to separate corporate data and personal data, even within the same folder on your device. In most 3rd party solutions you need to switch between personal and corporate mode or use different apps like one e-mail app for corporate and one for personal use. With Windows 10 data is just secure without the need to change your behavior to work. With company policies you can set which apps and locations are corporate so your documents, e-mails and other sensitive information will automatically tagged as “corporate” and will be encrypted. Your personal data will remain unencrypted and you can do whatever you want with these documents. When creating a new document you can choose whether the document is corporate related or personal. If your phone is stolen, the corporate data is encrypted and it is not possible to read the data. Data between corporate apps can be shared easily on the same device and can be blocked to copy to non- corporate apps like Twitter. This can all be arranged from a Mobile Device Management solution (MDM) like Microsoft Intune. Audit policies can be used as well. In that case users get a prompt that they are copying corporate data to non-corporate apps. The action will be logged on the main system so a security officer can monitor which corporate data is shared. On top of that you can enable Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS)* with sharing protection to share your corporate data securely. The encryption and security rights travel with the storage system, so copying corporate data to USB or external cloud services like Dropbox won’t compromise the encryption. You can choose who has access to the data, which permissions they get and when the access will expire. You can even track who is accessing the document. You can easily delete permissions afterwards even if the mail with a RMS protected file has been sent. Because it is now known which files and apps are corporate, selected wipes of your device can be used with Intune or 3rd party solutions. Stop compromising between business security and personal ease of use. Start taking advantage of using Windows 10. Life can be much easier with the right tools. *A separate license is needed to use the RMS cloud service Windows 10: no worries about business security and personal ease of use on one device!

  16. 16. 15 Windows 10 Virtual Desktops Microsoft is dedicated to bring the best user experience possible with Windows 10: more personal computing, mobility of the experience across windows devices and natural interactions with all Windows devices. One of my personal favorites is Windows virtual desktops. Virtual desktops provides for more space to group related windows per desktop and it makes organizing your work easier. The virtual desktops feature in Windows 10 is called ‘Task View’ and is located on the Taskbar. Just click the Task View button on the taskbar and click the ‘New Desktop’ button. Of course you can also use the various shortcuts to manage your desktops: • WIN + CTRL+D: Create a new desktop • WIN + CTRL + F4: Close the current desktop • WIN + CTRL + LEFT/RIGHT: Switch to previous or next desktop • WIN + TAB: Launch task view One feature which was requested by insiders who tested the Windows 10 Preview is ‘Drag and Drop’ to move windows between virtual desktops. Microsoft added this feature which helps to organize your desktops as you go. You can even drag a thumbnail to the ‘New Desktop’ button to create and move it to a new desktop in one step. Windows 10 indicates when a program is open on another desktop by putting a line under that program’s icon on the Taskbar. Clicking the icon not only activates the program, but also launches the desktop on which it is open. To view on which desktop your application is located use WIN + TAB to open the task view. There you can hover over the desktop to get a thumbnail preview of the opened programs on that desktop. Windows virtual desktop makes life less complicated by enabling you to work smarter, clearer and more efficient. Whatever your preference, organizing your work was never easier!

  17. 17. 16 As the first, Microsoft brings all possible platforms together with their newest version of Windows. This development started already in Windows 8.1, where Microsoft introduced Universal Windows 8 apps on BUILD2014. With the Universal Windows apps developers can target both Windows Store and Windows Phone with a shared code base. Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps for all Windows 10 Devices With the introduction of Windows 10, Microsoft took the universal apps development even further by introducing the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps which makes it possible to create one application that runs on every Windows 10 powered device. Windows 10 introduces three new form factors to the platform, IoT, HoloLens and Surface Hub. The Xbox One, which already made use of Windows Kernel, does now also have the ability to run UWP apps. But how can all these different devices families, with a large variety of hardware configurations, deliver the same kind of experience to your users? Taking into account a number of different screen sizes and pixel densities or even processing power or input modalities. In the Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft introduced a number of new techniques. These techniques are part of the UWP design basics. To enable UWP apps to run on every Windows 10 device Microsoft created a number of adaptive UI controls and new layout panels to help tailor the UI across a broad range of screen resolutions. These adaptive UI controls use a number of design basics, like “Effective Pixels Design”, “Design BreakPoints” and “Responsive Design Techniques”. Effective Pixels Design Every screen has a specific size and the number of pixels available defines the pixel density of a screen. With scaling techniques Microsoft enabled the platform to automatically scale the UI on every device. When designing a UWP application you need to take into account that you aren’t designing the app for physical pixels but “effective pixels”. This enables you to focus on the actual perceived size of an UI element. For example, when you design a 1” by 1” element that will appear approximately at 1” on all devices, but what actually happens is that the element is 200 by 200 physical pixels on a large high density screen, while on a smaller devices like a phone, it might be 150 by 150 physical pixels. In the image below is the example shown. By designing the application using effective pixels makes the number of screen sizes and densities where you have to account for much easier. Design Breakpoints When you start to think about designing an application for the variety of devices and form factors across the Windows 10 ecosystem it can be quite overwhelming. In responsive design, breakpoints are used to scale, rearrange or to hide certain elements in the UI. This common technique is used frequently in web development. Microsoft recommends to design the application for a number of key widths, or so called Breakpoints. The adaptive UI controls utilize these breakpoints to apply the different responsive design techniques. In the graphic below are the three Breakpoints shown that Microsoft recommends when designing your app. These breakpoints also use effective pixels to adapt the UI when a certain width or height is detected. Windows 10 brings all platforms together
  18. 18. 17 Now we seen two techniques to enable you to apply the responsive design techniques, for an adaptive UI. Responsive Design Techniques Another important part in the Window 10 Design Basics are the responsive design techniques. Microsoft defined six different techniques for developers to use when scaling and adapting the UI. Reposition You can alter the location and position of UI elements in your app to get the most out of each device. Dependent on the screen size it is possible to reposition UI panels. Resize In this example you can optimize the bounds of a UI element by adjusting the margins and size. Reflow By changing the flow of UI elements based on device and orientation, your app can offer an optimal display of content. For instance, when going to a larger screen, it might make sense to switch larger containers, add columns and generate list items in a different way. Reveal You can reveal UI elements based on breakpoints in place. Using this technique it is possible to enable additional functionality. Replace When the controls on a larger device don’t make sense it is possible to replace the UI elements for different ones to optimize the experience for the user.
  19. 19. 18 Re-architect You can collapse or fork the architecture of your app to better target specific devices. The example above uses a master detail page. On a larger device it makes sense to display the records and the details on one screen. In this case it makes sense when using a smaller device, it divides the UI in separate screens. More guidelines and design basics can be found at the Window Dev Center.As of now these techniques are available for developers to use while creating UWP apps. Making it easy to create great application with a similar experience across different devices. • Design Basics - Windows 10 • Responsive design 101 - Windows 10 There is more to come on the October 2015 event on October 6.
