    Experiencing Intelligent Systems in Hospitality and Retail

    Posted By Jeff Wettlaufer

    Hi everyone, it has been an incredibly exciting few weeks around the Redmond campus. The launch of Windows 8, the release of Surface (I’m writing this blog on my own Surface with Windows RT) and the Intelligent Systems Leadership Summit, shows we have been having a lot of fun. Recently we also hosted the Build conference here on Campus, where several thousand of our favorite developers descended to talk about apps in one of the largest temporary facilities I have ever seen stood up. And today Windows Embedded shared news of its product timeline. There is no question this is an exciting time in the industry.

    With the ‘wave’ of Windows 8 launch happening, we wanted to highlight some areas where Intelligent Systems drive new and compelling scenarios using Windows Embedded 8.  At the Intelligent Systems Leadership Summit we showcased several vertically aligned scenarios about how Windows Embedded plays a critical role from the sensor, through embedded devices, to the cloud.

    A Close-up Look at Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems

    Hey everyone, if you have been following industry platform news over the past few weeks, you might have seen the news about Windows Server 2012 being released. This is a significant release for us here at Microsoft, and as many of you who read this blog know, there is also a version of Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems. My name is Jeff Wettlaufer, and I am excited to bring my blogging efforts over from the System Center group, joining the Windows Embedded Marketing team. I have recently returned to Microsoft from a year at RES Software, and in my new role with WEM as a Technical Program Manager I am primarily responsible for the technical product management of Windows Embedded Compact, but also Windows Server for Embedded Systems, SQL embedded, Windows Embedded Device Management and of course Windows Embedded demonstrations. You can expect to hear from me on these areas and more in the coming months as I get unpacked and settled into this amazing team.

    We thought it might be worth a post to let you know a little more about what the server platform means to the Windows Embedded business, and provide you some highlights of the (huge) list of new capabilities. So, here goes……..

    Many of us think of servers locked up in datacenters in the corporate world, or more recently in large deployments - servicing cloud offerings like Outlook.com, XBOX Live, Office 365, Dynamics and even Windows Azure. While all of these are true, and great examples of Windows Server 2012 deployments, from an embedded perspective, we have other applications. I want to provide you an overview of Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems using 3 simple buckets:

    • One Trusted Platform
    • Fits with your needs
    • Extends intelligence for increased business opportunity

    Take me out to the ballgame……

    When we talk about Intelligent Systems, we speak about connecting sensors and smart devices through intuitive applications to cloud services. Whether this fabric is lowering the cost of manufacturing for your next car, helping your family doctor prescribe you the right medicine, or making your next shopping experience better, Microsoft technology is in the DNA of the effort. Sometimes, it even effects your day out at the ballpark.

    Most of us think of pro sports stadium experiences from our childhood. Mine was in Edmonton watching the Oilers of the 80’s in mullets and tube skates. The arena was loud. We kept up with the game using a hard copy program in our laps and the few light bulb boards around the rink that showed the score, some out of town info every now and then but not much more. Not much technology in place. Anywhere.

    Today’s kids have it a little different. With the kids back in school, those warm summer nights slowly disappearing into cooler evenings and the trees changing color, our thoughts turn to the autumn. Football coverage takes over the TV networks, and the baseball season heads for the playoffs.
