    The Intern Perspective: Explorer Interns

    Posted By J.T. Kimbell
    Program Manager

    Over the last two weeks you’ve had the chance to hear from our three Explorer interns and learn about them and their experiences. Now, you get to see what Meg, Colleen, and Andrew were working on all summer.

    Intern Cove

    Our first day of work, over a free lunch in the beautiful Advanta campus cafe, we are given the instruction to create a Windows Store app that runs on an embedded device that showcases the capabilities and features of Windows Embedded 8. It was made very clear to us from the start that the sky is the limit and because we were given so few constraints, our Explorer pod really had the chance to reach our creative potential. However, In order to focus our creative flow, we decided to distribute a survey about technology to our friends and family. We targeted our peers with the mentality being that this younger demographic consists of the future home owners and potential users of our device. We wanted to learn what these users expect, need, and desire from technology.

    After analyzing our data, and much brainstorming and collaboration, we gathered the following insights:

    How Intelligent Systems Streamline Data Landscapes in Healthcare

    Posted By Jeff Wettlaufer
    Technical Program Manager

    Hi everyone. With the exciting release of Windows Embedded 8, and the amazing application experiences that are associated with this new platform, we wanted to talk about how, from the sensor to the cloud, a consistent data stream and application experience can be shared across a number of form factors using a single development toolset.

    By optimizing our development, and helping you adopt using world-class development tools like Visual Studio, we enable organizations to standardize on one trusted platform, so you can develop cloud- connected services right down to embedded devices, and even the smallest of sensors like devices such as pulse oximeter sensors, used to record blood oxygen at family doctor offices.

    Now available: preview of new Windows Server 2012 R2

    Posted By Partha Srinivasan
    Product Manager, Windows Embedded Server and SQL Products

    The following is the first in a series of posts on Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems written by the team at Microsoft Windows Embedded.

    Windows Embedded customers can now download a release preview of the upcoming Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems(the binary identical to the Windows Server 2012 R2), which will be available later this year. The preview allows customers to get their hands on a fully cloud-ready operating system that provides improved performance, hybrid cloud-service capabilities and innovative storage options for building robust, industry class server appliances.

    OEM manufacturers use Windows Server for Embedded Systems to build server appliances — preinstalled hardware and software combined with the operating system — which make the configuration, deployment and management of industrial devices simpler and faster. One of the key benefits of the embedded channel is the availability of recovery image; the pre-packaged image makes recovery from system failures quicker, reducing downtime and thus meeting regulatory SLA requirements for high availability. These server appliances are used in a number of industrial devices such as PACS machines in hospitals, store servers in retail stores, historian servers in manufacturing plants, and are a key enabler in developing intelligent system architectures.

    So what’s new coming from Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems? There are many features and functionalities that are enhanced over the Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems, such as improvements to virtualization, networking, storage, server management and automation. Today, we offer an overview of the new features that can be leveraged by our embedded customers.

    Showcasing Microsoft’s retail expertise at EuroShop

    Posted By Werner Reuss
    Director, Business Group, Windows Embedded Germany and CEE

    In sports and in business, it is always about having the right team in place. The same holds true for an intelligent system for retailers: If you don’t have the right blend of devices, services and expertise, the solution you build won’t be as effective as it could be.
