Scottish Government adopts Windows 8

Windows 8 empowers Scottish Government executives to work from anywhere

The Scottish Government wanted to benefit from advances in mobile technology to support key employees to work from anywhere. It chose Windows 8 for tablet PCs with Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (SP1) for manageability. Microsoft Partner Trustmarque delivered a proof of concept (POC) for the lab development and is helping deliver the solution to staff, improving flexible working and boosting productivity.

The purpose of the Scottish Government is to focus public services on creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish through sustainable economic growth. In line with this goal, the Scottish Government wanted to improve delivery of citizen services by giving new communications tools to key employees working remotely, on the move, or from home.
