Are you ready for Windows 8 and the Cloud?
Millions of people around the world use Windows every day. With Windows 8 Live tiles on the Windows Start screen, display information from your website and service and turn your app into a real time awareness engine – even when it’s not running. Your services and your app will grab your users’ attention and keep them informed of the latest announcements and updates.
As an educational institution, Windows 8 gives you the opportunity for huge potential by personalising the learning and interactions with your students and give you the ability to list your apps in the Windows Store. This means the current and potential students of your institution allow you to reach millions of potential applicants, learners or associated partners.
So if you’re interested in exploring the use of any of these, drop by the Microsoft stand for chat.
