Windows 10 Upgrade Testing Services

A proven testing approach to delivering Windows 10 upgrades and updates at speed and with confidence

Minimise the disruption of crucial operating system updates

The challenge of upgrading hundreds, perhaps even thousands of workstations to the latest Windows 10 build, carries considerable risks, both technical and business related. ROQ has fine-tuned an approach that mitigates these risks. 

Today’s users are ever-more reliant on their workstations to perform their roles and have very little tolerance for any issues that might arise from these upgrades. However, new operating system releases can bring added security, new features and bug fixes - all driving the necessity to deploy the changes.  

Windows 10 Upgrade Testing Explained...

Fine-tuned approach

The complex landscape that an operating system underpins can be highly complex, with sometimes hundreds of internally and externally integrated applications. Through years of experience, ROQ has fine-tuned an approach so it can provide a managed testing service to mitigate the considerable risks of the initial roll out of Windows 10 and the subsequent updates and patches.  

It has developed capability within its Test Lab to execute multi-device testing, execute core business application automation and a revolutionary End Point performance test to mitigate the risks associated with these on-going changes.   

Pre-built automation assets to save time

Leveraging ROQ’s pre-built test automation assets on core applications – such as Office 365 – can instantly speed up the continual release testing 

Consistent, robust test environment

ROQ’S expertise in hosting an SCCM environment provides a consistent and robust test environment to ensure a smooth – often global – deployment process 

Complete confidence in performance

ROQ’s proprietary ‘End-Point’ solution provides complete confidence that devices continue to perform at an optimal level before taking an update into production, eliminating frustrations from users 

Leverage repeatable processes to reduce costs

ROQ provides a seamless transition to migrate the Windows 10 upgrade programme into a Windows 10 BAU service to ensure a consistent approach, leveraging repeatable processes and reducing costs 

Delivered faster and with confidence

Applying an automation-first approach to the Windows 10 upgrade and continual deployment means that critical updates can be delivered faster and with confidence 

  • A tailored approach to testing, adapting our trusted method to the needs of the organisation, working in close collaboration with stakeholders to ensure success 
  • Ability to run Windows 10 release testing as a BAU service to minimise disruption and running costs 
  • Rigorous regression pack, automating this where it adds true value, focusing on critical applications, such as Office 365  
  • Detailed planning of testing for each upgrade, aligned with in-flight project dependencies, grouping releases together where possible 
  • Test the agreed workstations, devices and peripherals that need to be in scope and define where the use of virtual machines can play a role in creating efficiencies
  • Ensure test environments and data is in place to avoid any downtime  
  • Ensure a rigorous defect management process is in place, including agreed workflows, SLA’s and triage meetings 
  • Provide clear and transparent reporting so that the status of testing and quality is understood by all  

"I stepped back from this project much quicker than I had anticipated. The project itself was complex with lots of interaction with different tech teams and the business, and it was overseen brilliantly."
