Samsung Completes Windows 7 Deployment in Korean Offices

Today I have some very exciting news to share about a Windows 7 Enterprise customer – Samsung Electronics has completed deployment of Windows 7 Enterprise throughout their offices in South Korea. Samsung has about 150,000 employees worldwide and the majority are located in Korea. We thought other businesses might want to hear about how they accomplished this rapid transformation.

Samsung is a worldwide leader in high tech electronics manufacturing and digital media. With so many employees at their headquarters, you can imagine the amount of strain on the IT department to manage such a large environment. For a simple solution across the board, Samsung chose to move to the company to Windows 7 Enterprise and Internet Explorer 8.

Windows 7 has not only simplified Samsung’s IT management, but has also allowed their help-desk employees to accomplish about 50 percent more work. Su Mi Lee, Manager of Corporate IT Strategy, Samsung Electronics, says:

“All told, we reduced PC management costs by 20 percent as a result of standardizing our environment on Windows 7.”

Since Samsung is well-known for creating innovative products, it’s also critical they protect their own intellectual property. In Windows 7, their favorite security features so far are BitLocker and AppLocker, which they are testing now to implement. Here’s more from Su Mi Lee, from Samsung Electronics:

“Security enhancements in Windows 7 are our built-in safeguard against loss or theft of any device, which will replace 3rd party tools for mobile users.”

Samsung also took advantage of their companywide migration to upgrade every computer with their LED panel and the DDR3 SDRAM chip - a new high-performance, energy-efficient memory chip. Between the power management features in Windows 7, Samsung’s advanced memory chip and LED panel, the company has reduced their PC power consumption by 34 percent.

Congratulations Samsung on this great accomplishment and we hope you continue enjoying the benefits of Windows 7!

  • Windows 7 has certainly had a successful first year! I've been steadily rolling it out in the businesses I work for with great success of my own.

    Here's an article idea though... discuss the HP Slate 500 in conjunction with Outlook 2010 and OneNote 2010, and specifically demonstrate how easy it is to organize your daily schedule with those two apps.
