On September 30, 2014, Microsoft’s “Windows Event” will take place in San Francisco. At the event, the tech giant is expected to deliver a “Windows Technical Preview,” where developers and enterprise customers will have the opportunity to learn more about major changes the company is making.
Details about what those major changes entail are not disclosed yet, but many believe Microsoft might be leading to more enterprise-friendly improvements, following the footsteps of Apple. When the company launched iOS 7, Apple provided advanced ways to deploy devices and deliver great user experience for employees.
One of the most expected changes Microsoft might showcase is an improved Windows system. A preview of Windows 9 and its features could be part of the “Windows Event” as well.
Over the past few weeks, leaked screenshots and videos have led many to speculate we could also see a new Start menu, a number of business-facing features like virtual desktops and a notification center. The Windows 9 Notification Center is expected to collect system and application alerts, similar to how Windows phones. This could potentially be viewed as an initiation to aid mobile device management in the enterprise sector. Microsoft’s digital assistant, Cortana, will also most likely be included in the new OS with even more features.
