I just got back from several days at BriForum, the Tech Target Brian Madden VDI and Virtual love fest. I say that affectionately.
We were showing off our Essentials Workspace Management Suite. There was a lot of interest as we’re nearing the release dates for a big update of our flagship solutions ProfileUnity, FlexApp, and Stratusphere.
There were sessions on Application Layering, a bake off session on Citrix XenDesktop and VMware Horizon and a whole lot more.
I got to sit down with Brian Madden and gave him a good update. I got to give him a demo of ProfileUnity & FlexApp v6.5. We also had fun catching up and talking about all that’s happened in the industry in the past year. He’s followed our products since before there was a Liquidware Labs so he’s seen them come a long way. I can’t speak for him but look at this smile he had afterwards.
I also got to touch base with several partners there such as CDI, KIS, and many more.
The sessions were great. Many of them were delivered by Citrix CTPs and were spot on for what the audience seemed to want to know. The sessions was in were interactive with a lot of Q&A.
I sat in on sessions from @rorymon, @earlg3, and @JarianGibson. FlexApp was covered in many sessions and mentioned by @BrianMadden in the keynote and by @GabeKnuth in videos on the floor. I wish I had time to see more but that’s OK, they were all recorded. Check them out as soon as they get posted on www.BrianMadden.com
It was also interesting that, in one session, VMware got called out for their Workspace Environment Management strategy as a “Trojan Horse” tactic to try to get a foothold into Citrix accounts. By the way, we agree and we’re getting the word out. At one point during the conference I had to run up to my room to deliver a great webinar session with the Citrix Ready team on our Essentials Workspace Management strategy, literally hundreds registered and it was very interactive with a lot of Q&A! Obviously the Citrix community wants to provide UEM, App Layering, and User Experience Monitoring without having to go to VMware…and we’ve got just the superior tech to do it!
