Stockholm, Sweden is routinely recognized as one of the most livable cities in the world.

Recently, the city wanted to establish more standardized IT while making city services extremely accessible to citizens of Stockholm. City's IT leaders focused on three key areas: delivering great value for citizens, rationalizing IT operations and centralizing shared IT services.

With this focus, the city turned to Windows 7 and began a 3-year deployment in Nov '09. Now with more than 85% of their environment deployed in the first 9 months, they're realizing tangible benefits as outlined their total cost of ownership study. Based on all Win7-related benefits measured, a 5-year business value analysis projects a $70 per PC net present value, a return on investment of 105% and a payback period within 12 months.
