For years, we’ve talked about the virtues of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). However, at the end of the day customers who invested time, resources and significant budget, often found that the benefits of VDI came with some hefty challenges. Complexity and time-to-value are difficult enough, but striking the balance between security and anytime/anywhere/any device access with has increasingly caused headaches for IT (not to mention the users!). Traditionally, securing apps and data meant keeping everything running in the data center, requiring IT to invest in expert resources to deploy and manage everything. In this session, you will see how these challenges have been addressed and how the barriers to adopting hybrid cloud digital workspaces are a reality with Citrix Cloud services deployed on Lenovo ThinkAgile HX. You’ll learn what VDI hasn’t been able to do, is now being delivered by Citrix and Lenovo. If you’ve already deployed VDI, we’ll show you how to relieve yourself of the burden of managing and maintaining a complex VDI environment, enabling you to put resources to better use. If you haven’t deployed VDI yet, we’ll show you just how simple it is to create secure, easy-to-use, and manage intelligent workspaces you and your users have been looking for. It’s called The Future of Work, and it’s here today.
