With millions of streams of telemetry data coming from Windows 10 computers all around the world it is hard to understand how updates coming from Microsoft can still have so many issues. Granted Windows 10 is extremely stable for a product updated as much as it is, but still the information coming from users about bugs and problems is orders of magnitude greater than ever.
In a leak of emails from inside the company, engineers admit they do not know how to read the telemetry data. Management is asking for insights into how Windows is failing and what users trends they understand. Unfortunately engineers in the Windows group are not skilled in the ability to read, understand, parse, or comprehend the overwhelming flow of data.
The data analysis backlog is so big current development of Windows is not using insights from the previous release. Instead insights are coming from the original shipping version of Windows. Engineers are unable to comb through the data faster than Microsoft can update their operating system. Larger combs have been ordered from Amazon, but skeptics are unsure if this will do the trick.
