You have most likely attended countless vendor conferences hungry for good, practical, and relevant technical content. Have you been disappointed at these commercial conferences due to the lack of in-depth technical content ("advanced" sessions that are really very basic), off-topic content, or content that is total propaganda?
Well, good news - BriForum is different.
Our 14th BriForum conference promises to once again provide massive amounts of solid technical content. There will be dozens of expert presenters who will lead over 30 technical breakout sessions. Plus, the recorded sessions will be made available online for all attendees after the show.
Just starting out with your desktop virtualisation initiatives? BriForum is a technical conference, but there is plenty of content for everyone from true heavy-hitters to less experienced administrators who are trying to wrap their heads around what's going on in this ever-changing industry.
Need a few more reasons? Discover the top five reasons you need to attend this event here:
#5: Designed to be interactive.
Come prepared to discuss your organisation’s requirements, challenges and projects. With attendance limited to 250 attendees, you’ll have plenty of time to mingle with the experts (consisting of top-notch industry analysts, bloggers and best-selling authors) who will be leading the technical sessions. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with your peers from around the globe who are dealing with the same issues you are during both daytime and evening activities. Share best practices and lessons learned.
#4: Perfect Timing & Location.
Why spring? Why London? We polled previous BriForum attendees and they told us that for a European show, London combines an easy to reach travel destination that offers plenty of activities, fine dining, and family-oriented fun. Also, spring is the ideal time to seek new technology for inclusion in the second half of 2014 and projects for the upcoming calendar year.
#3: The Most Relevant Technologies.
In 2014, we're expecting a busy time in the desktop virtualisation industry. We have the classic solutions that we pay attention to from Citrix, VMware, Quest, and Microsoft, but with new releases from them and Windows 8 on the horizon, there's lots to talk about. We also have application virtualisation and user environment management as part of that mix, just to make it more interesting. In addition to that, technologies surrounding cloud services, BYOC, BYOD, security, mobile device management, and consumerisation are becoming more relevant and important each month.
At BriForum, our independent experts will review these technologies and tell you what's real vs. what's hype, what works vs. what doesn't. Among other things, they'll look at how User Environment Management solutions can help with OS migrations, whether they're to physical or virtual machines. In addition, find out how application virtualisation's role in the virtual desktop space is critical to the success of a project, not to mention the specifics of VDI and Server-Based Computing. And gain insight how BYOPC, BYOD, Mobile Device Management, and Consumerisation are affecting companies today.
Also, in our BriForum DEMO Lab, you'll have the chance to interact with the top solution providers in the industry. Each and every participating vendor is required to have hands-on working demonstrations of their technology and senior level technical staff on site to answer tough questions--free from hype.
#2: Independent Expert Content.
BriForum is the only technical event that is 100% dedicated to desktop virtualisation, VDI, application virtualisation, Remote Desktop Services, and the consumerisation of IT. While providing best practices and strategies, our independent, expert speakers will also talk honestly and openly about technical challenges they have faced, how they solved them, what works and what does not work.
#1: Best Value for your Money.
As we all know, the economy is putting constant pressure on IT teams to deliver superior solutions with shrinking budgets. If you are involved with desktop virtualisation and you can only attend one event this year, BriForum promises to be informative, fun, and well worth the admission price! Attending BriForum is the most cost-effective way to obtain pertinent knowledge and best practices on this essential technology, rather than spending months reading books and articles, or browsing websites. Get all the tips and strategies you need to implement immediately at your company to save time, money and countless headaches!
