Microsoft releases Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011

Microsoft at the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) 2011, announced the release of Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011, an integrated solution that extends the capabilities of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 to include Windows Embedded Standard and Windows Embedded POSReady-based devices.

Windows Embedded Device Manager supports the most common devices found in enterprise environments built on the Windows Embedded Standard and Windows Embedded POSReady platforms, including Thin Clients, Point-of-Service (POS) devices, Digital Signage devices and Kiosks.

The solution provides IT professionals with increased ease by allowing them to manage enterprise devices in a manner similar to PCs and servers, enhanced insight and control through a single management solution, and greater device integration. Moving forward, Microsoft is exploring the potential to extend support to additional Windows Embedded platforms and device scenarios.

In a Microsoft Presspass, Kevin Dallas, general manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft, stated;

With the addition of Windows Embedded Device Manager to Microsoft’s extensive management portfolio, we’re in a unique position to make the lives of IT managers a lot easier across PCs, servers and embedded devices.

Previously, enterprises were forced to implement several management solutions to meet their needs, at a significant time and financial cost. We’ve made it simple for IT professionals to make simultaneous system updates across the enterprise with the familiarity of System Center Configuration Manager.

Features of Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 includes:
– Increased Ease of Management
– Enhanced Insight and Control
– Greater Device Integration
