Windows 8 For The Enterprise: The Pro Version And Much More
Microsoft has released more information about the upcoming Windows 8 Enterprise version. This is the edition of Windows 8 that has been specifically designed to help large businesses and according to Microsoft, it has a lot of tools to ensure that.
The Enterprise version of Windows 8 is basically everything that the Pro version is with features that help mobile productivity, Enterprise class security, manageability and virtualization — all of which are essential to any business being run these days.
But the best feature is probably the ability to welcome the BYOD trend that has been slowly starting all over the world. BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is a new phenomenon but the want for it goes way back. Thanks to the advances in technology, employees can now bring in their own technology to office and work on it without risking any security or compatibility issues. This is not very common right now but it is definitely an emerging trend and one that will increase productivity over all employee satisfaction. So companies would definitely want it.
It usually creates a nightmare for the IT administrator to keep the employer and employee happy by letting them work on their own personal devices but at the same time being charged with safe guarding all the company data from loss, corruption and theft. However, all that is going to change with Windows 8.
Since Windows 8 is going to be running across the entire range of devices right now — from desktop to laptops, tablets and smartphones — all of those will be supported by the company that is already running on Windows 8. There will far fewer hiccups going forward with this and if Microsoft gets a good response, they will be able to streamline and fine tune the whole process.
