Microsoft is aligning the servicing models for Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus and System Center Configuration Manager, particularly for customers with Secure Productive Enterprise.
Microsoft says Windows is committing to a predictable twice-per-year feature release schedule, targeting September and March of each year, aligning with Office 365 ProPlus. The next Windows 10 feature update will be targeted for September 2017.
Each Windows 10 feature release will be serviced and supported for 18 months. This is consistent with Microsoft's current Windows 10 approach, but adds further clarity and predictability to organizations by aligning with Office 365 ProPlus.
In addition, System Center Configuration Manager will support this new aligned update model for Office 365 ProPlus and Windows 10, making both easier to deploy and keep up to date.
