You can solve slow boot and slow logon in your enterprise! In this (new 2013 edition) “Case of…” style presentation we share real-world examples and insider tips from Microsoft IT and other enterprises on the causes of slow boot and slow logon. We measure user productivity gains/losses in terms of cups of coffee consumed while waiting for PC, but your business could measure the impact in millions of dollars per year. Be the hero that saves the Windows user experience from heavy handed management layers and badly behaving apps. We are living through a competitive “Bring Your Own Device” era where businesses are re-evaluating management control versus user satisfaction. Now is the time to achieve the right balance and optimize your Windows experience at work. In this session MC Stephen Rose sets the stage, while Pieter Wigleven from Microsoft Services walks you through diagnosis of the most common real-world slow boot and slow logon issues using the Windows Performance Toolkit. We also go beyond diagnostics to share stories of enterprises working their way toward improvement and some of the challenges they have overcome.

    All cases will be new, hope you will like them! There should not be any need to bring you own coffee but depending on what you did the night before: it doesn't hurt to bring some ;)

  • expecting to get some helpful hints on this topic.
    maybe a chance to provide users a better service afterwards.

    Looking forward to some useful techniques we can apply. Be nice if there as a flowchart/ process flow/ top 10 list of things to check

  • 2 nespressos Wink since i have my ssds.

  • Some insights about latency issues between (chatty) Outlook and Exchange servers? 200 ms latency = 4:40 min wait for opening a 10 MByte file (with large bandwidth). Caching only partially helps.
