Olympia – Windows Insider Lab for Enterprise

Quoting Microsoft:

Windows Insider Lab for Enterprise Program is intended for Windows Insiders who want to try new experimental and pre-release Enterprise features. To get the complete experience of these Enterprise features, Olympia Corp, a virtual corporation has been set up to reflect the IT infrastructure of a real world business. As an enthusiastic Windows Insider you can complete quests which guide you through these cool new Enterprise features. As an IT professional, you can better understand the end-user perspective of features like WIP (Windows Information Protection), WDAG (Windows Defender Application Guard), and Windows Defender ATP (Advanced Threat Protection).

I must say I think this is one of the best additions to Windows Insider program. As an Insider for Business, by enrolling in Olympia I will be able to really test enterprise-level changes in upcoming versions of Windows 10. Using a mock corporate account, everything is safe. Thus, I do not have to worry about messing up my production systems and technician machines with as-yet unreleased features and functions.

Think of Olympia Corp as a large-scale sandbox. You can test it, try new and different features, push Windows 10 to its limits without any risks whatsoever. For new versions, when a feature upgrade is released, you will already be familiar with it and know if that upgrade can be deployed to your users (or not).

At the moment there is only a limited number of seats available to enroll in this program. To request such enrollment, please complete the survey at https://insidersurveys.windows.com/s3/Olympia-Windows-Insider-Lab-for-Enterprise.

Please notice, to apply you need to have an Insider for Business account. You can join Insider for Business program here: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/getting-started/
