The software-defined approach to managing endpoints is now paving the way for greater security and mobility in the enterprise; laying the foundation to support emerging technologies such as IoT; and, providing IT organizations with the data and analytics they need to optimize end-user computing. Further, software-defined thin clients and desktop conversion software can also go a long way toward reducing the cost of VDI deployments.

Attendees will also learn how IGEL solutions, when combined with Citrix’s virtualization, cloud and DaaS offerings, make a powerful endpoint computing solution VDI infrastructure environments.
