    Win 10 Enterprise vs Pro in an OES environment

    Hi all,

    Are there benefits of running Enterprise over Pro in an OES environment? We are working on moving to Win 10 and are also at MS Assurance renewal time and the Enterprise portion is fairly expensive so I was wondering what benefits are gained or leveraged in conjunction with OES if any. I've read the comparison chart but I'm not sure the additional features outweigh the additional price. We are also running Zen and use edir to manage and authenticate. Thoughts from those in the know?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Brad, I am in the same boat as you, I would be interested to hear from others as well on their knowledge/experience with Win10 and OES. We are transitioning to OES 2018.

    There are no benefits directly related to OES. All the other benefits of
    Enterprise vs. Pro of course stand: longer support, more control via
    group policies, but these are all unrelated to OES.

    If you still confused then main factor you can consider before switching is security. Win 10 is including virtualization based security and bio metric security too but does not include advanced threat protection, but for me I found win 7 best from all the versions because it is very fast on my desktop.

    Ksharon and Massimo: you both make some good points. We have rolled out a handfull of Windows 10 systems and they are Pro. We have also installed added protection for advanced threats and the like. Overall, a lot more of extra management (have not added them to Zenworks yet) to keep those bad patches at bay, but so far do-able. The OS is not so bad on our older systems, just not sure how long that will continue to be the case and whether or not they will continue to get updates (you know, the hardware compatibility collusion factor, all the mfgs making you buy new all the time). It is going to be HUGELY expensive for us, a small company, to have to buy new hardware AND get software assurance just for the OS, especially if we have to go Enterprise. It's a big decision to make.
