Microsoft has scored a big deal in Sweden with the Riksdag Aministration buying into Windows 8.1, Office 2013, Skype and Lync. The new environment will be rolled out across departments in March, with a pilot scheme initially taking on 100 participants. Post elections in the fall, all 1,650 positions at the Reichstag will be updated with Microsoft tech. This move should also look to include tablets and Windows Phones.
A bonus with Microsoft's environment is the ability for employees to utilise Windows and Windows Phone, with integration from the cloud and Office suites to create a feature-rich enterprise solution. The Swedish government also takes into account taxpayers funding and how to more efficiently spend available cash flow. It's a positive score for Microsoft, who is looking to beef up its business offering.
