05/12/10 18:50 You’ve heard a lot about heroes today…and you may have even seen this slide. A people-ready business empowers people—its most important asset—to drive the business forward. Businesses don’t make decisions. Businesses don’t close deals, invent new products, or find new ways of doing things. People do. Companies excel when they empower their people to drive the business forward. Software is instrumental to the people-ready business. Software is increasingly how we harness information, the lifeblood of business today. Microsoft’s Web platform is the software that powers the internet around the globe. It enables us to connect with people virtually everywhere, to share ideas and information, to exchange commerce, to entertain, to motivate and inspire. Microsoft has made a promise to every IT Pro and Developer around the globe in these four areas. Our promise is to empower you with great software which can make you successful. Whether it’s the folks who design & build your solutions…or those that deploy, configure and operate your systems…or your teams responsible for maintaining the security of your network…or supporting your end users, we believe it’s our job to help make the broad spectrum of people in your organization as successful as possible. And, we believe Microsoft has a unique approach/philosophy to doing this – taking a holistic approach and a focus on driving integration and consistency across our product portfolio – to enable more efficiency and productivity for your IT pros & developers.
Windows Server 2008 is one of the exciting products that we’re launching today. After five years of engineering commitment, Microsoft is proud to release the latest Server operating system which has been honed to power the Web, take advantage of new hardware and software paradigms, and make it easier to protect users and information around the globe.
