No, I’m not talking about the college basketball tournament that is so popular in the U.S., I’m talking about the maddening number of events I have attended over the past few weeks. And while being on the road can be tiring, it’s really worth it to meet with customers and partners, and gauge the reaction to intelligent systems in real time.
The feedback about the intelligent systems concept and messaging remains unchanged. It resonates very well with partners and with customers. Events provide an opportunity to show something more tangible to drive broader awareness on embedded technology trends and how Microsoft can help enterprises capitalize on them.
My key takeaway from these events is that the market is changing…fast.
The madness began at Embedded World, held in Nuremberg in late February. Unlike other tradeshows with waning attendance, Embedded World grew this year, to 22,547 visitors. Around 70% of the visitors came from Germany, the rest from various EMEA countries.

This week marks a major milestone for Windows Embedded and intelligent systems. Microsoft Windows Embedded’s senior product manager David Wurster has details.
The day is finally here: Windows Embedded 8 products are generally available, and our OEM partners can start shipping their Window 8-based edge devices to customers. Bringing Windows Embedded 8 to edge devices is an important milestone as the role of edge devices and intelligent systems continue to transform the way business gets done.
On March 20, we announced the immediate availability of Windows Embedded 8 Standard and Pro to our OEM partners, and that Windows Embedded 8 Industry will be available to OEMs the week of April 1 (no joke). Enterprise customers will have the ability to add additional functionality to their edge devices through Volume Licensing starting July 1.

Today we announced the general availability of the Windows Embedded 8 family of products. You can read more about that announcement here.
I’ve been involved in a lot of launches at Microsoft over the years, but to me, this feels like something more. As the promise of a world of connected devices and the Internet of Things accelerates, enterprises have the unparalleled opportunity to capture, analyze and act on data throughout their organization with intelligent systems.
Windows Embedded 8 is set to be a catalyst for this acceleration, coupling the power of Windows 8 technologies on edge devices with the full software and services stack from Microsoft behind them. Now applications designed to work on a range of industry devices can deliver modern, rich experiences, while leveraging the power of technologies stretching all the way back to the cloud. Imagine the possibilities.

I want to describe you a situation and I’m sure you are familiar with it: You come across a digital signage device or point of sale terminal and there is an error code showing on the Windows desktop. The device is inactive, waiting for someone to reboot it. This is not just pretty lame; it might hurt your service or your company if you allow it to happen.
