Intel - Office 2010 Solution Brief

  1. 1. All New 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processors and Microsoft* Office 2010: Your Best Choice for Business PCs SOlutION BRIEF Over the past decade, the way people use technology to conduct business and the level of regulation that affects IT have shifted dramatically. Users can collaborate efficiently, analyze mountains of data, and work from virtually anywhere, while government regulations and corporate governance policies have put increased pressure on IT to place tighter controls over data and workflows. These shifts present technical decision makers with considerable challenges. IT must: • Support a mobile workforce while giving users the power necessary to access and manipulate the data they need • Comply with strict governmental regulations and corporate governance policies • Deploy applications to remote users and keeping their computers current with the latest security patches and updates Intel and Microsoft can provide organizations powerful tools to confront these challenges. The best time to upgrade hardware is when deploying Microsoft Windows* 7, and Microsoft* Office 2010 offers even more reason to refresh your business clients. The all new 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processors can increase the performance of Windows 7 and Office 2010, both of which take advantage of advanced processor features. Office 2010 is also a tool in the IT manager’s arsenal for tackling diffi- cult governmental regulations and corporate compliance rules. Intel vPro technology, combined with deployment tools such as the Microsoft* System Center family of network management products, helps IT deploy, manage, and troubleshoot Office 2010 with fewer user disruptions.
