  • Let’s talk about the best tablets for business and the improved user experience across form factors, including touch first tablets, and mouse and keyboard based desktops. <br />
  • Note to presenter(1): Windows 8.1 UI demo (including desktop) is recommended here, with this slide or the next slide being a backdrop or a post-demo summary of what was shown. Please find the demo doc under http://windows8ready under the Commercial tab <br /> <br /> ------ <br /> The UI on Windows devices continues to provide a fast and fluid experience. Enhancements available in the Windows 8.1 update focus across a wide range of areas including: <br /> Start Screen improvements: <br /> New large and small tile sizes allow you to design the start screen you want. Large tiles provide an extensive canvas for rich live tile updates and information. Small tiles allow you to increase app density where you want it. <br /> Hero Search Experience <br /> From PC files to web results, search, powered by Bing, provides a simple-to-read aggregated view. For many key search results Windows provides an integrated view of many content sources to provide the best “answer” for your query. With actionable links for most common tasks you do what you want to do rather then spend your time searching. <br /> Enhanced windowing and multi-monitor support: <br /> Enterprise users work on many tasks as once. Now you can have an infinite combination of apps, sizes, and positions across all of your monitors to meet your needs. From the task worker to the most demanding power users configure your apps and screens how you want them. <br /> See desktop only when you need it: <br /> With more settings in the modern PC settings and other enhancements you only need to see the desktop when you need it <br /> Leave the desktop only when you want to <br /> Want to stay in the desktop experience? With the new start button and enhancements to the desktop you can bring your start screen up right over your desktop background. Rather see the all apps screen when you press start? No problem, you can even reorder it by category, date installed, or name. You can also put your desktop apps at the front of the list. With Windows it doesn’t matter if you want to use touch or mouse and keyboard Windows works the way you want to work. <br /> IT Start Screen Control <br /> Set user’s start screen to corporate standards and lock it down. Want to change it later or have different start screens for different groups? No problem, since it based on group policy you can update it at anytime or set the start screen based on a users organizational group or other attributes.
  • Let’s talk about the best tablets for business and the improved user experience across form factors, including touch first tablets, and mouse and keyboard based desktops. <br />
  • Regardless of scenario, Windows 8.1 provides choices for managing Windows devices that connect into your organization’s infrastructure. For organization-owned devices that are routinely connected to the internal networks, traditional enterprise management capabilities are provided using System Center or similar tools, providing full control and management of devices. For employee-owned devices that only access e-mail via Exchange ActiveSync, simple governance features are available to ensure that Windows devices are appropriately secured, providing the right amount of governance required. And now with the new open MDM capabilities, there is a middle ground for light control of BYOD Windows devices: using cloud-based MDM products, appropriate enterprise apps and settings (such as VPN and wireless profiles, as well as common security settings) can be made available to the devices, even when employee-owned. <br /> <br /> Organizations can choose one or all of these solutions, depending on the scenarios that they intend to support – these are not mutually exclusive. <br /> <br /> The mobile device management capabilities provided in-box in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 are based on the Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA-DM) protocols. Windows devices can enroll with any MDM provider, such as AirWatch, MobileIron, Windows Intune, or any other third-party MDM product that understands how to communicate with the built-in OMA-DM protocols in Windows; no additional agents need to be installed. <br /> <br /> These OMA-DM protocols are designed for secure communication with cloud-based MDM services, requiring little or no infrastructure investments for lightweight management of Windows devices, including employee-owned BYOD devices. <br /> <br /> [Optional] The features provided by the OMA-DM implementation in Windows 8.1 include app deployment (sideloading), VPN and wireless profile management, settings configuration, compliance reporting and inventory, and software updates management. <br /> <br /> <br />
  • Note to presenter: this slide is optional <br /> ------- <br /> Microsoft’s Unified Device Management Strategy <br /> Empower Users. Enable IT to provide users with access to the corporate resources (including apps) they need on the devices they choose (including personal devices). <br /> Unify Management Infrastructure. Reduce costs, maintain compliance, and improve IT efficiency by unifying management and security for PCs and mobile devices in a single infrastructure. System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 and Windows Intune combine via a single admin console to help unify device management across a wide variety of device types. <br /> <br /> - By combining Intune and System Center, customers can manage their existing Windows clients, Windows 8 and Windows RT device, and if required MAC OS, IOS, and Android (Exchange Active Sync). <br /> - While System Center deep management functionality is the best solution for Windows 8, Windows To Go, and MAC OSX, Intune provides the management functionality for Windows Phone 8, iOS, and Android devices (Android via EAS). This enables customers to choose the right client for their needs without sacrificing management and security. <br />  - With Intune, the infrastructure is based entirely in the cloud, so in effect all devices are managed remotely. This provides a very fast and simple implementation and also allows them to easily outsource the management of devices to a Microsoft partner located virtually anywhere. <br /> <br /> Customers looking to manage across many devices and utilize a single administrative experience based entirely in the Config Mgr console, therefore they are able to manage all of those devices in a single management console.
  • Investments in Windows 8 and Windows 8., combined with ongoing improvements translate into strong enterprise scenarios for customers.
  • <br /> The priority for businesses that are still running Windows XP and Office 2003 is to migrate to a modern Windows operating system before Windows XP and Office 2003 reach the end of support on April 8, 2014 <br />   <br /> •  Secondly, if customers are currently deploying Windows 7 and Office 2010/2013, we advise them to continue with those deployments, but simultaneously evaluate and pilot Windows 8.1 and Office 365 for mobile scenarios and tablet solutions. Customers deploying or developing apps for Windows 8 should continue as their investments will carry over to Windows 8.1 when available later this year. <br />   <br /> • When refreshing hardware, we recommend customers to purchase Windows touch devices to ensure investments are future proof <br />   <br /> •  With the availability of Windows 8.1 preview we encourage all customers: <br /> •  Start to evaluate, test and pilot Windows 8.1 in their organization <br /> •  Also start evaluating Office 365 ProPlus <br /> <br /> Target Windows 8.1 and Office 365 for all their tablet deployments <br /> •  Target Windows 8.1 and Office 365 ProPlus for adoption across all PC form factors in your organization, including desktops, laptops, all-in-ones and other form factors <br /> •  Evaluate the opportunity for their  business with new modern  Windows apps developing on Windows 8.1 platform
  • Windows 8.1 Enterprise features include all the capabilities that customers get with Windows 8.1, plus premium features designed to provide the mobile productivity, security, manageability and virtualization needs of today’s businesses. Here’s an overview of some of the key features that will be available exclusively to Windows 8 Enterprise customers (and note this is not an exhaustive list): <br /> <br /> Start Screen Control allows customer to manage different start screen configurations for different groups or roles using Group Policy – you can imagine the scenarios this enables, particularly with devices in retail stores, etc. <br /> As we mentioned previously, Windows To Go is a fully manageable corporate Windows 8.1 desktop on a bootable external USB stick. This will allow IT organizations to support the “Bring Your Own PC” trend and businesses can give contingent staff access to the corporate environment without compromising security. It is important to note that Windows To Go can only be used with active Software Assurance, but the Windows To Go Creator tool is included as an Enterprise Edition feature. <br /> DirectAccess allows remote users to seamlessly access resources inside a corporate network without having to launch a separate VPN and helps IT administrators keep remote users’ PCs in compliance by applying the latest policies, software updates, is easier to deploy, and it can be implemented with the existing IPv4 infrastructure. <br /> BranchCache allows users’ PCs to cache files, websites, and other content from central servers, so content is not repeatedly downloaded across the wide area network (WAN). When used with Windows Server 2012, there are several improvements to BranchCache to streamline the deployment process, optimize bandwidth over WAN connections and ensure better security and scalabilty. <br /> VDI: Enhancements in Microsoft RemoteFX and Windows Server 2012, provide users with a rich desktop experience with the ability to play 3D graphics, use USB peripherals and use touch-enabled devices across any type of network (LAN or WAN) for VDI scenarios. <br /> AppLocker can help mitigate issues by restricting the files and apps that users or groups are allowed to run. <br /> Enterprise sideloading: Domain joined PCs and tablets running Windows 8 Enterprise will automatically be enabled to side-load internal, Windows 8.1 modern apps. <br /> <br /> As previously mentioned, rights to Windows 8.1 Enterprise edition are included as a Windows SA benefit. <br /> <br /> With the exception of our subscription agreements (OVS and EAS), Enterprise edition use rights are perpetual for the licensed device, even after SA coverage ends. <br />
