    Is Clinical Data the Holy Grail in Healthcare’s Digital Revolution?

    Posted By Valerie Olague
    Americas Business Group Lead

    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.

    Designing the Car Experience of the Future

    Posted By Kevin Dallas
    General Manager

    This week I had the opportunity to attend GigaOM Roadmap in San Francisco. Together with Ford, we celebrated the 5th anniversary of Ford SYNC and 5 million SYNC enabled vehicles shipped milestone.  

    The conference theme was “connected design,” exploring how design and user interface impact the experience people have interacting with connected devices.   This is a topic my team is focused on in our work with Ford and our other automotive partners as we explore how our intelligent systems strategy can help deliver a richer, more personalized experience in the car.  We are thinking about the contextual environment inside the car and how computing helps that experience for customers.

    Windows Embedded 8 is Intelligent Systems Ready

    Posted By Barb Edson
    General Manager, Marketing and Business Development

    A couple of weeks ago, at the Intelligent Systems Leadership Summit, I had a chance to catch David Wurster’s presentation on new features and functionality in the Windows Embedded 8 platform. As senior product marketing manager for Embedded, David has a great vantage point to see all of the cool things going on with Windows Embedded 8 as the new suite of products are rolled out over the next year. The following is a blog post he put together for me, so we could share those features in this space.

    Over the next year, we're bringing Windows 8 to the embedded market, allowing OEMs, enterprises, developers and other partners to build devices and applications that offer a high-performance, fast, fluid experience without sacrificing any of the security and flexibility that the reimagined Windows delivers:

    • Windows Embedded 8 Standard continues to be our modular, componentized version of Windows 8. We add technologies on top of that to enable industry-specific scenarios. A release preview is available now, with general availability scheduled for March.
    • Windows Embedded 8 Pro is the full version of Windows we'll be bringing through the embedded channel. This will also be available in the March timeframe.
    • Windows Embedded 8 Industry is the new name for our Windows Embedded POSReady product. The reason for the change is that we see the capabilities of this operating system fitting into a much larger number of device categories than just point-of-service. In January, we’ll be offering our first community technology preview of this important release.

    We’ve done a lot of work to make sure Windows Embedded 8 is ready for the world of intelligent systems. In the end, it’s all about being able to deliver the kind of rich, compelling, connected line-of-business experiences that people expect.

    Much of the excitement around the new platform centers on its multi touch and ten-point touch experiences and the capabilities they enable for the device world. Check out the demo video below for a look at how smooth Windows Embedded 8-based applications can be:

    Posted By Karen Roberts
    Senior Partner Marketing Manager

    The launch of Windows Embedded 8 through Volume Licensing is not only big news for enterprises, it’s also an important milestone for our solution partners and transactional partners that are just being introduced to Windows Embedded, as it expands and deepens opportunities in the growing intelligent systems market.

    According to IDC, the intelligent systems market is expected to reach $2.3 trillion in revenue by 2016 – more than double the estimated 2012 market size. Partners that create devices and solutions with Windows Embedded 8 will be well positioned to capitalize on this growth by offering their enterprise customers an added level of value, including direct critical features and functionality from Microsoft.
