UK's largest NHS Trust ditches laptops in favour of Windows To Go
“London's Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has taken the radical decision to deploy Microsoft's Windows 8 on USB sticks after deciding against the expense of buying replacement laptops.
The UK's largest NHS trust trialled Windows to Go last summer during the London 2012 Olympics, allowing several hundred staff to work from a variety of locations including home during a period of peak medical demand.
The Trust said it had been attracted by the ability to manage the sticks as if they were conventional PCs using tools such as System Center Configuration Manager whilst offering roving staff across the Trust’s clutch of London hospitals a full-featured desktop experience.
The deal is the first major UK public sector win for Windows 8 in this form factor.”
