Join this series of webcasts to learn how to deliver the same content and get your customers excited about what Windows 10 can do for their business.
In developing Windows 10, we aimed to provide a powerful platform for education. Specifically, we focused on four key areas, which we believe are top of mind for both teachers and schools. First, we recognized that we would need to deliver a platform that could help significantly improve learning outcomes – technology that helps students learn, connecting them to important information and getting to the heart of how they best engage, absorb and retain critical information. We also know that in education, administrators face constant pressure to do more with less – and as a result, we sharpened our focus on delivering a broad range of affordable devices and solutions, to meet the needs of schools around the world. Third, safety and security, institutions require manageable identities and secure devices focused on threat and malware resistance by design. And lastly, our experience in this space has told us loud and clear that technology in the classroom needs to be simpler to deploy and manage than in the past.
We believe Windows 10 will be a big hit with small- and medium-size businesses, and will use this occasion to highlight for you those product features and technologies we know will resonate deeply with, and be highly valued by, this customer segment. This session will help you understand how to position Windows 10 to this segment, giving you a jumpstart in capturing the wave of migration services and new device sales we expect the release of Windows 10 to generate. You will see and hear the SMB pitch from its creator and have the opportunity to ask questions as well.
