What does modernizing end user computing look like? How easy is it for organizations to get started, and what are the business benefits?

Traditional approaches to desktop delivery – physical PCs and VDI – are expensive and complex. Overtaxed IT teams are responsible for procuring, provisioning, and maintaining the physical infrastructure, and with more users working remotely, security risks are unprecedented. Desktop management has reached a breaking point.

It’s time to modernize with Cloud PCs for simplified management, greater agility, and stronger security. Cloud PCs are always accessible from any device or browser. In this session we’ll discuss:

  • How to easily and securely support remote and hybrid work
  • Why deploying across multiple clouds is optimal
  • The importance of global Cloud PC observability
  • The key to fast-time-to-value and long-term success
