Vista After Hours

Back by popular demand! We ran 2 of these back in May and the response from attendees was incredible. Here is just one example. These events are for technology enthusiasts – after you attend these you will be buzzing! The event covers what’s in Windows Vista out of the box and how you can extend it. Products we will cover include: Windows Vista (search, photography, movie maker, DVD ,maker, back up and restore, network and sharing centre and more), Windows SideShow, digital picture frames, Home Server, Xbox 360, Media Centre, Windows Live Gaming and Virtual Earth

24 September 2007, Reading: Zero Touch Deployment of Windows Vista & Microsoft Office

This session will look at the ROI and long term, ongoing benefits to the manageability of your desktop environment; the deployment tools and support you are entitled to as part of your current Microsoft Agreement (if you have one); and how to access and utilise tools and services for zero touch deployment. This event is one of two pilots to see if we can meet your needs in this area and is specifically aimed at IT Professionals in medium-sized organisations.

28 August 2007, Reading: Application Management – the Foundation for Desktop Environments

This session, focused towards large organisations, will look at the application-related technical obstacles and overheads
which can stand in the way of achieving a flexible, desktop environment, capable of responding to ever-changing business and physical needs. This event is one of two pilots to see if we can meet your needs in this area.


Again back by popular demand! Jackie Elleker scored some of the best presenter scores with these events previously! Attend this course to understand Microsoft Licensing and how best to apply it in your company to fit in with your business needs. This session is aimed at IT professionals who wish to gain a better understanding of Microsoft’s software licensing. The briefing assumes no previous or in-depth technical licensing experience.

    Nothing in the South West either.  I couldn’t attend the last TechNet in Bristol because it was fully booked (and then some!)
