Windows 8 ConsultingWindows 8 includes headline features such touch-screen support and a new tile-based Start interface, but Microsoft's latest client operating system also introduces less conspicuous yet significant improvements such as more built-in security, faster booting, expanded connectivity, enhanced cloud support, fault-tolerant storage, better synchronization, advanced backup/recovery, more powerful search, lower power consumption, and client virtualization.

Predictably, some of these enhancements come with a cost. Incorporating Windows 8 into a business network may require that you reconfigure your remote access environment, modify your security scheme, update or replace applications and utilities, and retrain users.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can help you evaluate the business benefits and engineering challenges related to upgrading existing PCs to Windows 8 or adding new Windows 8 clients to your network. Progent can help you to resolve problems encountered during the process of upgrading to Windows 8, adjust your remote connectivity environment and your network infrastructure as needed, redesign your IT security strategy to take full advantage of the security enhancements built into Windows 8, recommend new desktop management procedures in order to simplify administration of all your Windows 8 clients, and provide customized webinar training sessions to bring your IT management staff and your end users up to speed quickly on Windows 8.

For larger organizations, Progent's project managers can help set up test labs to evaluate Windows 8 and design and execute Windows 8 desktop migration plans based on leading practices.

New Features of Windows 8
Windows 8 includes many new features that address a variety of customers ranging from gamers to workstation power users. Many of these features are designed to improve the usefulness and manageability of Windows-based smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Professional and Enterprise versions of Windows 8 have important features that enhance the productivity of users working with mainstream business applications.

These new capabilities, when combined with the latest computer hardware, offer big advantages over previous releases of Windows and should be factored into any ROI calculation. High-value innovations incorporated in Windows 7 include:

  • UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)
  • Client Hyper-V Virtualization
  • Storage Spaces
  • Windows To Go
  • Native Support for USB 3.0
  • Improved Multiple Monitor Support
  • High Performance File Explorer (to replace Windows Explorer)
