Those who use Windows Update as part of their business packages might lose the opportunity that until now gave them the freedom to delay the deployment of each new Windows option, and as long as it is not convenient for them to accept changes. With the 1903 version there will be no such freedom, so users will have to take good care of how much each change affects business and the storage of documents.
When Microsoft began to distribute Windows 10 as a service, with regular updates that always occurred at a given time, two update branches appeared: “Current Branch” (CB) for ordinary users and Current Branch for Business “(CBB ) for companies. During 2017, these names have been changed, and it has passed on two updates annually – one in April and one in October. Thus, the update for ordinary users became “Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)”, while for companies it became known as “Semi-Annual Channel”. Business Windows packages could be customized to follow one or the other version, and depending on how the employees wanted to control the implementation of new updates. Thus, devices that were tuned to “Semi-Annual Channel” had to wait several months after the new updates appeared on “Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)” devices, and the difference lasted for up to three months, the Windows version of 1809 did not appear. Thus, the employees had enough time to deal with new options, and assessed when it was best to apply them.
With the Windows version of 1903, which comes in April, users will no longer be able to choose between “Semi-Annual Channel” and “Semi-Annual Channel”, and corporate users will not have much time to think about new updates, and decide when they are good enough for their needs. Therefore, it is expected that Microsoft will ensure that new options are at a satisfactory level for both ordinary users and large companies, from the first day since an update appears. However, experts doubt that this is possible, and they expect that the administrations of large companies are not particularly satisfied with the new options that come with the 1903 version.
