Microsoft announces Windows Insider Program for Business

The Windows Insider Program has already been a success in terms of garnering feedback from the consumer segment, and now Microsoft is ready to take it to the enterprise as well. Speaking at its Ignite conference in Australia (via Neowin), Microsoft formally announced the Windows Insider Program for Business (helpfully shortened to WIP4Biz), through which it hopes to gain more insight from IT professionals in business as new builds are tested.


There's no word on when the program will fully launch and start bringing new builds to IT professionals, but its dedicated website provides a little more information on what to expect:

In the coming months, we'll be adding additional features to the existing Windows Insider Program to better support you in your job. Incorporating the Windows Insider Program for IT Professionals into your deployment plans enables you to prepare your organization for Windows 10, to deploy new services and tools more quickly, to secure your applications, to increase productivity giving you confidence in the stability of your environment.

For now, any interested IT professionals can go ahead and register their interest on the WIP4Biz website by filling out a short survey.
