IGEL Announces European DISRUPT 2019 End User Computing Forum
IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced dates for its second annual DISRUPT End User Computing Forum. The leading industry conference on end user computing (EUC) will be held on January 23-25, 2019 in Munich, Germany, at the INFINITY Hotel & Conference Resort. Featuring prominent industry speakers sharing insights and trends on today's EUC transformation, the conference will highlight why today's organisations need to "challenge everything". 

"Organisations are facing a series of EUC challenges in an environment of increasing management constraints. Challenges ranging from workforce mobility and hardware refreshes to endpoint security and the migration to Windows 10. But with technology vendors such as Microsoft making huge advancements with Windows Virtualised Desktops in its Azure cloud solutions and Citrix continuing to innovate with its cloud and subscription business there are an increasing range of exciting EUC solutions for enterprises," said Simon Townsend, IGEL Chief Marketing Officer for EMEA. "At DISRUPT we will dig deep into EUC transformation with insights and best practices delivered by some of the industry's most prominent thought leaders as well as practical advice from EUC leaders at top organisations across multiple industries. It's the can't-miss event for anyone in the EUC industry."

Underscoring the DISRUPT 2019 theme, "Challenge Everything," event presenters will be demonstrating how attendees can overcome the common EUC challenges of complexity and cost. Speakers and sessions lined up for the highly anticipated event will share how organisations can take their EUC environment to new levels of cost efficiency, simplicity and protection.

Insight will be shared on Windows Virtual Desktops, protocol comparisons, graphics and virtual reality in VDI, how to achieve digital transformation, the latest Citrix updates and the IGEL roadmap.
