Remote control for virtualized desktops

Live Now! One of the biggest challenges arising from desktop virtualisation is the experience and demands of the end user. A one size fits all or lowest common denominator desktop approach is rarely a recipe for success when there are a range of use cases and expectations to cater for.

Users are becoming more mobile and wanting to use a range of new smartphones and tablets in addition to the good old PC. It's no longer just about the centralisation of resource - it's about identifying the groups and devices and then exploring the range of customisation options for each groups needs.

Today at 11am The Register's Tim Phillips is joined in our London studio by Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics and Matt Mcspirit from Microsoft to discuss how users will not accept sub-par solutions on the desktop, how they want their desktops up to scratch wherever they are and on whatever device, and how you identify these users in the first place - not to mention some of the solutions you can actually use to serve the needs of these groups.

On top of that, the panel will explore why this problem is emerging now, the storage and hardware considerations to do it effectively and the myriad of headaches security, mobility and the overall flexible working approaches that need managing on an on-going basis with these kind of roll outs.

If that matches some of the challenges you're facing, then this should be a big help. We've got a lot of experience on the panel to guide you through the solutions and tackle any questions you have live, that's right, live.
