    Your business needs the Internet of Your Things

    Posted By Barb Edson
    General Manager, Marketing and Business Development

    I said in my last post that the Internet of Things is not just a futuristic concept, it’s here right now. And I want to make one thing clear: The Internet of Things is really the Internet of Your Things because it starts with what matters to your business — your own assets, needs and goals. What information are you already collecting? What will your customers want in the next 10 weeks, six months or two years? What are your goals for growth and expansion? The data and technology assets you already have are the keys to getting started in answering these questions.

    About 16,000 Microsoft partners gathered last week in Washington D.C.

    More than 16,000 Microsoft partners gather at WPC

    Just a few short months ago in December, I reflected on the busy year just passing, and the tremendous strides our team had collectively taken to push the frontier of the Internet of Things (IoT). Back then, I promised “The coming year will truly be one for the books” — and how right I was! I couldn’t have known then that six months later, I’d be at an event, together with 16,000 of our ecosystem partners, watching Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella run through a demonstration of a customer solution that harnesses the technologies at the heart of Microsoft’s IoT platform. From that writing on the last day of 2013 to today, IoT – in all of its vast and thrilling potential – has literally taken center stage.

    An Irishman in Beijing

    General Manager, Marketing and Business Development

    Last week, as China marked a major political milestone, my colleague John Doyle had the great fortune of being in Beijing to celebrate a milestone of sorts for Microsoft: the announcement of the planned roll out of a new suite of Windows Embedded 8 products. John is the director of product management for Windows Embedded; here, he offers his impressions of the historic week.

    Just returned from a week in Beijing. It was a really interesting time to experience the capital city as last Thursday marked the first leadership transition in a decade.

    If you’re reading this, you’ve no doubt noticed: The Windows Embedded team blog has a new look. In fact, as of a few minutes ago, all of our digital properties—from this blog, to our website, Twitter, Flickr, SlideShare and YouTube channel—have been refreshed with an integrated look and feel, and copious new features, content and resources.

    On this blog, you’ll see cleaner navigation and simplified access to information from the Windows Embedded team—as well as other contributors from Microsoft and our partner community. Expect to see a continued range of technical information on our products and commentary around the growing emergence of the “Internet of Things,” the opportunity presented by intelligent systems and “big data,” and other topics tied to the evolving embedded market.

    Our new Windows Embedded website launched today, too, and it’s brimming with brand-new features—from dozens of new videos and rich content detail, to a deep dive into Microsoft’s vision for intelligent systems and the Internet of Things, links to many free white papers, reports and technical reference materials, a burgeoning Windows Embedded community and more.

    Windows Embedded 8 Handheld joins the Windows Embedded 8 family

    Posted By Barb Edson
    General Manager, Marketing and Business Development

    This week in New York, we’re rolling out the newest member of our Windows Embedded family, and it’s a complete re-imagining of what an enterprise mobile device should be. D’Arcy Salzmann, senior product manager for Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, has details.

    At the end of 2011, Kevin Dallas, general manager of Windows Embedded, shared with our customers and partners that the next generation of Windows Embedded Handheld would be based on Windows 8 technology. This past October, we provided more details when we published our updated Windows Embedded road map, noting that the new platform is built on Windows Phone 8 and would be called Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, and we promised that more details would be available in January.

    Today at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & EXPO, our team is taking the covers off of Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, introducing our device hardware partners, and showcasing the next generation of mobile line-of-business application experiences with one of our launch customers, showing how Windows Embedded 8 Handheld devices help them deliver on the promise of intelligent systems.

    Microsoft and mobile devices for industry have a long and successful history together. Starting with Windows CE, Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5, Microsoft mobile platforms today power mobile devices in all industries, helping businesses and governments deliver secure mobile productivity in stores, warehouses, delivery fleets, ports, hospitals, and airplanes. Devices from Microsoft’s hardware partners ensure customers have durable, secure, and reliable connectivity to enterprise systems, allowing them focus on their business, whether inside their showrooms, on the road, at the jobsite or at their customers.
