VMWorld 2016 EUC Sessions I’m looking forward to attend

ShareIT

With only hours before one of the most attended IT conferences of year begins, I though I would share the VMWorld 2016 EUC Sessions I’m looking forward to attend this year. Granted the conference started for some on Saturday, for others (like me) starts on Sunday and for most will start on Monday, there is still time to adjust your agenda.
As usual the break-out sessions are not first-come-first-serve, pre-registration for the sessions opened a few weeks ago and if you took advantage of that, you have a seat saved for you but if you didn’t, one can still go and stay on the line and hope for a few open seats.

This year the EUC content is divided in 5 subtracks: Virtual App And Desktop Delivery, Identity Security, Industry Solutions, Mobile Productivity Apps and Unified Endpoint Management. These subtracks will allow the attendees to focus even more on specific products/areas. For example if you are interested on Airwatch the Mobile Productivity Apps subtrack is what you should select on your app filter.

The following are the sessions that I will be trying to attend, some of the sessions have also Self-Paced labs that you can attend in case you want to get a closer look or you couldn’t get in. Additionally, the description for each session is my interpretation of the official description and the reason why I would recommend the session.
