Latest Research by Lansweeper highlighted that half of the workstations used across the globe are unfit for operating in today’s environment.
FREMONT CA: IT management outfit Lansweeper recently published research that showed that half of the workstations used by enterprises across their global offices are not fit for today's work environment. The research highlighted that the condition of the servers were even worse. The survey showed that less than 1% of the machines where are capable of running efficiently, going in accordance with Microsoft's requirement, of running the wunder-OS.
The research examined over 30 million Windows devices across 60000 organisations, fingered CPUs and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) requirements as the main reason behind inefficient work stations. According to the research, only 44% of workstations around the globe satisfied the CPU requirements, while only 52.55% of machines had the TPM module enabled that would satisfy Microsoft's requirements.
Virtual machines were particularly poor since TPM hadn’t been a requisite up until Windows 11. Administrators will be required to change settings or update their VMs in order to upgrade their systems to Microsoft's latest versions. The majority of Intel chips must be 8th generation CPUs or above, though a handful of 7th generation chips could also work. The reason behind these modifications is the reliability, security, and compatibility with the latest versions of Microsoft's devices. Dayne Turbit, Dell UK Senior Vice President and GM, has remarked that a lot of new technologies will be emerging in 2022. The company has previously highlighted that around 700 million PCS are required to be upgraded to the latest version of Microsoft. He also highlighted that enterprises are slowly rolling out Windows 10. Since the 2018 update disaster of Windows 10, when Microsoft quickly released the new update and shut it down as soon as data destroying issues were identified, the global tech community has been a little cautious regarding Windows releases. Considering that so many systems across the globe are unable to meet Microsoft's latest hardware requirements, the next update might be the company's slowest update ever.
