Moving to a BYOD environment

On Demand Webinar

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Consumerisation of IT are transforming enterprise IT. But as end users enjoy the new freedom BYOD brings, the IT department is left struggling with old familiar problems of client management and data security.

Virtualisation – from Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to the Smartphone, is an increasingly effective way for IT to deliver the right apps and the right data to the right people on the right devices at the right time, in a secure and complaint way.

This webcast looks at the opportunities and challenges this entails. The issues and the technologies available to deliver robust virtual workspaces on the desktop and other end point devices are explored with analysts, end users and experts from VMware and Cisco.

    Andrew frequently delivers go-to-market consulting for IT vendors off the back of this research. Another key element here is Andrew’s in-depth knowledge of IT channels and distribution. Whether looked at from a seller or buyer perspective, understanding this piece is critical to making sure the right products and services reach the right customers in the right way.
