Summer 2015

OnWindows Magazine

Editor: Rebecca Lambert
Publication manager: Andy Clayton-Smith

The Summer 2015 issue of OnWindows is out now, providing you with everything you need to know about enterprise technology on the Microsoft Windows platform.

In this issue, our cover story looks at how enterprises are embracing collaboration tools to create truly connected and engaged organisations. Featuring comment from Bryan Goode, senior director of Modern Collaboration at Microsoft, we share some of the best industry examples of how companies such as Tesco and Dr. Oetker are using Yammer, Skype for Business and more to allow their employees to communicate as they do in their personal lives and gain powerful insights.

We also hear from some of the technology industry’s most influential people, including insight from Microsoft’s corporate vice president of the Enterprise and Partner Group, Susan Hauser, author and futurist Brett King, and Frost & Sullivan analyst Jeff Cotrupe.

Elsewhere in the magazine, you can read about some of the latest technology implementations at the likes of Next Generation Sports Network, Orbital ATK, United BioSource and Dr. Martens.
