Windows 11: What’s New and How to Get Ready For It

Did you know Bill Gates became the world’s youngest billionaire only two years after the first release of Windows way back in 1985? Gates was 31 at the time, and all these years later, it seems he still has the golden touch. The release of Windows 11 is causing tremendous excitement in the business world, and you can upgrade now.

But, what should you look out for, and are you ready to implement Windows’s new operating systems into your IT infrastructure? Of course, Microsoft has been here before, so they’ve made some fantastic upgrades and made it as easy as possible for you to get the benefits.

Read on to find out all you need to know about Windows 11.

Enhanced Security

recent survey by the UK government found that 46% of companies experienced a cyber breach or attack in the previous twelve months. This can cause immediate damage to revenues and long term reputational harm. The Windows 11 zero-trust framework delivers faster authentication while still providing a high level of security. 

Your devices do need to have a TPM 2.0 chip and UEFI to get the maximum benefit, so you may need to upgrade older equipment to keep your technology at the cutting edge of data security.

Optimised Performance 

This latest update has brought a pleasing increase in performance speed. Even if you have multiple apps open at the same time, your software can maintain its efficiency. This is due to the deployment of an intelligent Windows 11 management system. For example, if you have an app open for an extended period but don’t use it, Windows will move it to a background application.

This means there is more power available for the systems you are working on right now.

Upgraded User Interface

No one knew what to expect from this upgrade in terms of the user interface (UI). The Microsoft Window platform has taken people by surprise by dramatically changing the visual appearance of the operating system. This is a positive development as the new version makes it much easier to keep a tidy desktop. 

There is also a nod to the increasingly popular hybrid working environment. If your staff use Windows 11 2-in-1 devices that can connect to dual monitors, they can seamlessly switch between working on a tablet on the sofa and a computer in your office. The intelligent system remembers the desktop setups so employees can take up where they left off.

How to Upgrade to Windows 11

The good news is that if you are using equipment bought in the last few years, you will not need to incur further costs by purchasing new devices. However, you will need a user adoption and device management strategy to make the changeover as seamless as possible. In addition, you should also consider your long-term management requirements. 

customised management solution can help keep your devices correctly configured and optimised. You can then enjoy an excellent return on your investment.
