Business continuity plays an essential role in the context of business productivity, to allow you to alleviate or re-distribute non-core business operations and optimise your best assets (your people), freeing more time and resource to focus on new opportunities to transform and grow your business.
We have highlighted the following scenarios and solutions to help you to reduce costs and adapt to changing business needs, using technology and cloud services to improve your business productivity.
How to do you free up more time for IT to spend on strategic business needs?
Never worry about your users forgetting their login password again with Windows Hello, a more personal way to sign in to your Windows 10 devices with just a look or a touch. You’ll get enterprise-grade security without having to type in a password. Windows 10 PCs and devices use the same identity service as Office 365, making a single identity and single sign-on possible across Office 365 and Windows devices.
Reduce time spent keeping everyone up-to-date and know you’ve always got the latest tools and software with Office 365 and Windows Update for Business.

Get modern and stay modern.
Windows Update for Business delivers easy updates to fit in with your work schedule, giving companies more control over the way updates are delivered. It allows for maintenance windows, whereby administrators can specify periods when updates should take place. It also supports distribution rings, to specify which devices should receive updates first as part of an update wave.
Current Branch for Business offers an alternative update schedule. This will allow your organisation's Windows 10 systems to receive updates that bring new operating system features only after their quality and application compatibility has been assessed in the consumer market. Security updates will continue to be delivered as normal.
Prepared, punctual and professional.
Cortana in Windows 10 is already great at letting employees quickly see what the day is going to look like, see where and when their meetings are going to be, get a sense of travel times to and from work, and even get updates from a calendar for upcoming trips.
But Cortana works even harder when connected to Office 365, helping employees prepare for meetings, learn about co-workers, and receive reminders about where they need to be so they won’t be late.

Windows 10 Continuum allows you to do and present your best work from your Office 365 applications, optimised for the screen you’re using, from a small Windows 10 Phone device, sharing up to big screens like the Microsoft Surface Hub.
