in Bangladesh, as well as be the new touch devices displayed

by Microsoft Bangladesh’s

hardware partners.

In an interview with The Daily star at the event, Pubudu Basnayake, chief operating officer Microsoft Bangladesh, said the launching of Windows 8 started in October. “People are excited about the product and there is a good response for the windows 8.”

“Windows 8 will be officially launched in Bangladesh soon. We are getting our partners and distributors trying out the product. Although It’s not officially launched, consumers in Bangladesh should be able to place orders through the resellers.”

When asked he said they have not yet thought about lunching Surface, Microsoft’s tablet, in Bangladesh market. It’s actually available in few markets in

the world.

Microsoft has been closely working mainly with enterprise customers in Bangladesh.

“Most of the enterprise customers are using key technologies like Active Directory, Exchange, Share Point, Lync. But what I have seen is that there is a significant amount of customers who haven’t tried our products, so there is quite a lot

of potential. On the top of that

we need to do more work with

the government and also with

the NGOs.”

“For Microsoft this has been one of the biggest launch years. We are launching more than 30 products, services and hardware devices in the market. We are almost reengineering the way we will be selling our products. There will be lot of products out in the market with a load of new feaures.”
