Windows 8 Consumer Preview Product Guide for Business
Posted on Windows 8 News, Rumors & Tips
Microsoft has released the Windows 8 Consumer Preview Product Guide for Business in time before the public release of the new preview version of Windows 8 later today. The pdf document highlights some of the new – and some of the old – features that Windows offers for businesses around the globe.
The guide covers the new Start Screen and touch experience, Internet Explorer 10, new mobile productivity features, end-to-end security and unified management across devices.
The Windows 8 Consumer Preview Product Guide for Business provides a detailed look at the many new and improved features in Windows 8. The guide is designed as an accurate source of information that can help businesses understand how Windows 8 enables users to be ready and productive practically anywhere, allows for a personalized user experience, and provides IT with more secure, easy-to-manage intelligent infrastructure.
The guide offers a quick summary for interested users who have not followed the development process closely up to this point. Users who did won’t find new information or features that have not been talked about before. It is a good read even for home users, as it covers both home and business related topics.
Growing mobility and consumerization trends pressure IT professionals to provide users with secure access to a corporate operating system and apps in situations when a device or network is out of the IT department’s control. Windows 8 includes the ability to provide users with a full corporate copy of Windows (along with user’s business apps, data, and settings) on a USB storage device. When users insert their device into any Windows 7 or Windows 8 compatible PC and restart the PC, they get their entire personal environment, and operate as a fully managed device. When they sign out, they can remove the USB device, and it is ready to use on another PC
The guide should not be confused with a user manual though, as it is to short for that and does not cover installation of the operating system or configuration options.
It is likely that Microsoft will release a Windows 8 Consumer Preview guide with today’s release, as it has done with the Developer Preview release.
You can grab your copy of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview Product Guide for Business from Microsoft’s Download Center.
