What Does Lakeside Software Have Planned for VMworld 2016? 

As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2016 coverage coming up later this month, we're in the process of working up our schedules to make sure we can see and learn as much as possible when the show kicks off.  And we're extremely excited to visit the Solutions Expo this year.  But with so many vendors exhibiting, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your schedule?

One of my "must see" companies this year is Lakeside Software.  I had a chance to catch up with their team at Citrix Synergy, and they were showcasing some amazing stuff around their flagship product, SysTrack.  I can't wait to see what they are showing off at VMworld.  More about the company:

Lakeside Software transforms the way that enterprises deploy, manage, secure, improve, and report on end user experience by coupling the world's most lightweight agent with a robust data analysis engine to instantly grant complete visibility and control to administrators without impacting end user experience.  Lakeside empowers EUC teams with comprehensive end user analytics and endpoint telemetry, enabling them to optimize user experience, mitigate risk, minimize cost, automate operational tasks, and make better decisions.
