Windows 10 business users will be able to access Azure Active Directory

Microsoft continues to offer more information on how businesses can leverage the features in Windows 10 when the final version is released sometime in 2015. Today, the company revealed some of the different ways enterprise customers can manage their Windows 10 installations, including support for Azure Active Directory.

Microsoft stated:

"With Windows 10 we'll also add the ability to leverage Azure Active Directory, devices can be connected to Azure AD, and users can login to Windows with Azure AD accounts or add their Azure ID to gain access to business apps and resources. At the same time, we'll ensure that Windows works better when using Active Directory and Azure Active Directory together. When connecting the two, users can automatically be signed-in to cloud-based services like Office 365, Microsoft Intune, and the Windows Store, even when logging in to their machine using Active Directory accounts. For users, this will mean no longer needing to remember additional user IDs or passwords."

Microsoft also plans to improve the mobile device management features in Windows 10, including support for multiple users, full control of the Windows Store and more. All of this will hopefully allow for more businesses to upgrade from Windows XP and Windows 7 to Windows 10, as many of them decided to bypass Windows 8.

Is you business considering an upgrade to Windows 10 on their PCs?
