The comprehensive series of Solution Accelerators offered over the past years is an illustrative example of this, but, earlier this month, new offerings were announced to help business
customers deploy Windows 7. Erwin Visser, director Business-Marketing Organization, Microsoft, introduced to the world
Proof of Concept Jumpstart, Self-Service PoC Jumpstart Kit and Production Pilot Jumpstart.
