College Boosts Productivity, Security by Upgrading to the Latest Operating System
Thomas College is a small liberal arts school in Maine that prides itself on providing the latest technology for its students and staff. The school's Information Technology department wanted to standardize on one PC operating system in order to improve user productivity, enhance security, and ease management tasks. The school decided on the Windows Vista operating system and recommends that all incoming students purchase portable computers from Dell with the operating system preinstalled. Widespread use of Windows Vista on the campus is helping improve user productivity, enhance security, and create a solid foundation for future improvements in the IT environment, including 64-bit computing.
