IGEL_DisruptLess than a month from now, IGEL North America will be hosting its first DISRUPT End User Computing Forum.  We are stoked about bringing our VDI community together in a three-day event that will be rich in substance and content that will help our partners make 2018 a record year!  Our Austin event is the second in a global DISRUPT series.  Bremen, Germany, happening next week, is already sold out!  We’re followed by Melbourne, Australia DISRUPT, March 13-14.

With close to two dozen speakers from leadership positions across the EUC sector, and 34 sponsors contributing their talent, knowledge and insights, our DISRUPT events are giving you a jump start on taking EUC to the next level in innovation, sales and new directions.

Another trade event?  You’re asking yourself:  should I add this to my already busy Q1 schedule?  Here’s three reasons why IGEL DISRUPT will pay off for you in ROI:

  1. DISRUPT is laser-focused on helping you leverage new opportunities in the endpoint software market.  This includes the phenomenal IoT market in which 50 billion devices will be connected by 2020.
  2. DISRUPT gives you an in-depth, and multi-dimensional look at end user computing without the distractions of a typical ‘trade show’ atmosphere. Case in point: our stellar speaker lineup which provides a valuable cross-section of insight from IGEL partners, customers, media, analysts and tech insiders – all of whom are moving the needle in end user technology.
  3. DISRUPT will disrupt you, in a good way:-) It will spark new ideas, new ways of growing your business in the channel, and for customers, new insights from your colleagues in other industry sectors!

DISRUPT(ive) Speakers

We’ve been talking about DISRUPT here.  Let’s look at a preview of who will be talking at DISRUPT, February 6-8, at the AMD Corporate Campus in Austin. Our speaker lineup of influential thought leaders includes Sumit Dhawan, the key leader driving VMware’s EUC Division; Doug Brown, IGEL’s Global Technologist and resident geek speak specialist, and female leaders opening more doors for women in IT.  They include Eva Helen, CEO, EQ Inspiration; and April Marbury, CIO, Diversicare Healthcare Services.

Joining this great group are influential thought leaders from  Citrix, CRN, 451 Group, IoT Advisory Group, Lakeside Software, Lockton Companies, deviceTRUST, PrinterLogic and Strayer University.

Sure to also inspire some interesting conversations is technology media influencer Brian Madden, who will be one of our featured presenters at DISRUPT.  Brian will be sharing his views on the changing shape of end user computing and what today’s enterprise desktop administrators need to know about IoT.

How end users are now driving the evolution of IT will also be on the agenda with insights from John Abbott, co-founder and VP Infrastructure at 451 Research.  John will examine how virtualization and cloud services have given users a new world of options in how they choose to work.
