Microsoft announces the 'New Efficiency' program

REDMOND, Wash. - Responding to today's global economic downturn, Microsoft Corp.'s high-tech and electronics industry partners and customers have been able to leverage the innovative application of new information technologies to gain competitive advantage through improved operational efficiency, better value-chain collaboration and stronger customer relationships.
Today, a new generation of business solutions is transforming IT into a strategic asset that makes it possible for high-tech and electronics manufacturers to cut costs without crippling customer service or constraining work-force creativity and effectiveness. A new generation of business solutions is eliminating the barriers between systems and applications, and automating routine tasks so IT professionals can focus on high-value work that is aligned to strategic priorities. These technologies also help high-tech organizations reduce risk, improve security and drive down support costs.
For example, Dell is planning to upgrade 100,000 desktops and portable computers to the Windows 7 operating system to reduce desktop management costs and enhance data security. Dell expects that Windows 7 will help the company reduce the time required to update and test software images, strengthen operating system security and improve operating system performance. New features will help IT staff deploy software and resolve user problems faster.
Dell anticipates that results and benefits will include a 50 percent reduction of software imaging work, a 25 percent reduction in support costs, better data and network protection, and better performance and support for portable devices.
"Dell has been an early beta customer of Windows 7 and has hundreds of internal pilot deployments. We expect to move to a broader rollout now that the code has been officially released," said Takis Petropoulos, global IT manager, Systems Management and User-Centric Solutions at Dell.
