Announcing general availability of Upgrade Readiness

We are proud to announce that today Upgrade Analytics is becoming Windows Analytics – Upgrade Readiness and has moved from public preview to general availability.

Upgrade Readiness will help you move to Windows 10 and stay current with new Windows 10 Feature Updates by providing

  • Detailed inventory about Applications, Drivers, Office Plugins and IE based web apps
  • A guided workflow to take you from pilot to deployment
  • Tools to make data driven decisions about your application portfolio

You can learn about the full feature set of Upgrade Readiness in TechNet.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who contributed in building Upgrade Readiness, especially the more than 600 customers who used Upgrade Analytics during the public preview.

The development of Upgrade Readiness has been heavily influenced by input from the community and we hope you keep the feedback coming. If you have an issue with Upgrade Readiness, you can use the Azure portal to submit a support ticket. If you have feedback and suggestions, please use the Windows Feedback Hub.

We are currently planning the development of new features to give you even more insights about the applications your company uses and to streamline the Windows as a Service Upgrade workflow.

    Upgrade readiness is not a free solution.  It requires an Azure Active Directory subscription which you can sign up for free, but expires after 30 days at which point you need to upgrade to a paid subscription plan. I’d recommend updating your online documentation and videos to reflect this fact.

    1. Hey Jim,

      Upgrade Readiness *is* a free solution! It does require an Azure subscription (Azure AD is not a requirement), but you will not be billed as long as you use the subscription exclusively for Upgrade Readiness. We recommend creating a pay-as-you-go Azure subscription to avoid the 30 day expiration of the free trial that you mentioned. All data associated with Upgrade Readiness is exempt from billing, and it does not count toward your OMS daily upload limits either.

      Send us an email at if you have any questions.
