Microsoft Wants to Eat BYOD

With the recent excitement about Windows 8, Microsoft is already in the process of eating up as much as possible the market share of BYOD, by squeezing in Windows 8 which promises to support both consumer and enterprise hardware and living up to the calling of consumerization of IT.

It is rolling out ARM-based Windows RT tablet which is designed as an enterprise solid device which is comparable to an enterprise hard-rock corporate machine. Meaning to say, it is able to perform high power computing processes.

It also launched Windows To Go (WTG) which caters for bootable Windows 8 from USB devices, allowing a much greater mobility support of Windows in terms of plug-and-play and even mobile virtualization.

This is pretty cool given that the MS Windows environment had never been having good credits for being friendly enough in terms of loading speed, security and user-configuration options.

The other great thing is Windows Intune, a SaaS which caters for PC and mobile device management and security in the cloud. The core function is provide computer security services such as malware detection and deployment of software updates for mobile devices.
