Event Overview

Windows® 7 introduces some fantastic new technologies to streamline your business, enhance security and save you money. We’ll start this Windows Firestarter event from the users point of view and have a fun and lively introduction to some of the new features in Windows 7.   Next we’ll move onto DirectAccess and show how remote users can connect seamlessly to the corporate network, giving them virtually the same experience as being in the office, all of this without VPN!  We’ll then move on and learn how to protect your drives and data with BitLocker™ and show how Windows 7 extends this protection to USB drives with BitLocker-To-Go™.  Finally we’ll round off the day with an in-depth look at how to automate your deployments of Windows 7 with System Center Configuration Manager.  This information packed, demo intensive day will kick-start your Windows 7 knowledge and get you well on the way to being prepared for deploying Windows 7!
