Taiwan is a highly competitive market for Windows Embedded OEMs/ODMs, and growing more so each year. My colleague Alan Lee, Windows Embedded Business Lead for Taiwan, shares his thoughts on the increasing momentum there of intelligent systems.
In the recent years, Taiwan has become a world-class computer design and manufacturing country. A majority of the players are small- and medium-sized companies who started their business as PC original design manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and later utilized their skills and expertise in embedded computing to make a mark in different industries that include POS, KIOSK, industrial PC and military.
Microsoft Windows Embedded recently unveiled a series of products during its Road Map announcement and it has the industry excited, as many of our customers and partners are anticipating new and exciting ways to enhance technology with intelligent systems.
The intelligent systems market in Asia, including Taiwan, is experiencing explosive growth. In Taiwan, we have more than 20 OEM/ODMs that are currently evaluating the community technology preview (CTP) for Windows Embedded Standard 8, and over 120 projects have been completed and are being tested for Windows Embedded 8. Device categories include PPC, IPC, POS, industrial table, medicaland many more.

My Americas marketing team recently worked with Intermec and Fierce Markets to create a healthcare webinar that focuses on this question, along with how mobile devices power transformation in care, both within and outside of the healthcare provider’s four walls.
As you have heard from Microsoft many times, we believe that data is the new currency for businesses, and in the healthcare industry, the identification, storage and analysis of data can mean life or death for patients. The ability to quickly access patient information can significantly reduce the time it takes for healthcare professionals to care for patients, from admittance through discharge. And today’s embedded technologies and products are what power the various tools and devices used within healthcare scenarios.
These devices are becoming a critical part of healthcare solutions, including electronic health records and patient portals, which address some of the many challenges in healthcare today. And at the point of care, there are focused healthcare data management solutions that enhance patient safety (see “Five Rights Check” below) that leverage bar code imagers, mobile computers and printers.

The rapid proliferation of intelligent systems in Asia-Pacific countries means that a person comes in contact with multiple embedded devices on any given day—often without even knowing it. My colleague SeongJin Kang, Windows Embedded Business Lead in Korea, shares his thoughts on this subject after a recent family outing to a local mall.
In the era of big data, we have easy access to--and are constantly flooded with--information that we are always filtering for accuracy.
The current IT technology and connectivity are growing exponentially; the speed of IT evolution seems to be beyond the speed of light. The television in the living room shows movies in 3D—a possibility that we could only imagine just a few years ago.
