Written by

If you are involved in End User Computing in any way, shape or form, you absolutely must check out the details on the upcoming DISRUPT 2020 event.  Now in its third year, DISRUPT is quickly filling a void and becoming the standard event to address everything EUC. 

The 2020 DISRUPT events will take place January 27 through 29 in Nashville, TN and February 4-6 in Munich, Germany. 


Read this exclusive pre-show VMblog interview with Jaymes Davis, Director of Product Strategy & Sales Engineering and Craig Irwin, VP Global Strategic Accounts & Alliances of Tehama, to learn what they have planned for the DISRUPT event.

VMblog:  Give VMblog readers some background on Tehama.

Jaymes Davis and Craig Irwin:  Tehama was founded on the vision that the workforce of the future would be global and would present challenges of complexity, security, and scale. Tehama was designed to solve the problem of orchestrating technologies to transform the digital workplace and meet the speed of innovation that enterprises demand in today's ever-changing business landscape.

Tehama delivers virtual offices on the cloud and enhances end user computing, helping enterprises to save money, increase agility, and reduce risk.  

VMblog:  Talk about your technology, what problems do you solve?  And how are you considered unique?

Davis and Irwin:  Enterprises today are looking for a cost-effective solution to address Global Workforce Enablement, Supply Chain Security, PII & Intellectual Property Protection, High-Risk Region Operation, and Business Continuity. Tehama addresses all of the above and provides all the IT infrastructure needed to quickly onboard, manage, scale, and monitor a global workforce, resulting in minutes to productivity.

These virtual offices (and virtual Tehama Rooms within) provide ready-to-work SOC2 Type II environments that either integrate with or is compatible with the best-of-breed tools used by the enterprise; IAM, PAM, SIEM, and more.

Tehama's virtual office has created a new technology category to save time and money on day 1, eliminating the technical and logistical complexity to ship laptops, build out a VDI infrastructure, enable VPNs, and establishing physical offices.

VMblog:  And tell us, how do you partner with IGEL?

Davis and Irwin:  Tehama partners with IGEL to further enhance the "complete chain of trust" they deliver with their next-gen edge OS for cloud workspace.

Together we deliver technology that provides a secure, high-definition, and highly responsive computing experience for end user computing. 

With the Tehama Service Delivery Platform and an IGEL device, we have created a single-entry point to enhance time to value with unparalleled security when compared against your traditional desktop or your DIY VDI projects.

Tehama virtual Rooms can be configured and ready to deploy with Windows and Linux desktops within minutes. All while skipping the weeks of deployment, configuration, or planning for traditional VDI or DaaS. With IGEL and Tehama, enterprises benefit from a secure end user computing experience on-demand in minutes. The output of Tehama + IGEL is a safe, cost-effective end user computing solution that leads to faster time to value and massive savings on time and money.

VMblog:  What do you plan to show off at your booth at DISRUPT 20202?

Davis and Irwin:  We will demonstrate how to build a virtual Tehama Room in minutes to provide Global Workforce Enablement, Supply Chain Security, PII & Intellectual Property Protection, High-Risk Region Operations, and Business Continuity.

VMblog:  And why do you think DISRUPT is a much needed event this year?

Davis and Irwin:  IGEL's  DISRUPT allows for an agnostic approach to talking about End User Computing and Business Needs. It brings together a base of customers and partners who are experts in the field and provide a lot of value/expertise, covering the hottest EUC topics.

VMblog:  What do you attribute to the growing success of End User Computing? Why has it become so popular lately?

Davis and Irwin:  As technology has evolved, many employers are enabling a global remote workforce, and End User Computing has become the new way of working. Workers want to be able to work from any location, and End User Computing provides this type of flexibility that enables an employee to do so. It also provides a solution that allows workers to use multiple devices, which is convenient for travel or working from home.

The ability to avoid having to migrate to a new OS is another considerable benefit of End User Computing. With the end of support for Windows 7 upon us, all of the time, costs, and headaches of a large scale hardware and software migration are hard to ignore. Solutions like IGEL plus Tehama can help IT departments save time and money and provide an easy alternative that does not take a long time to implement.

VMblog:  Finally, how do you and your solution help with the growth of the EUC market?

Davis and Irwin:  Tehama addresses many of the challenges facing enterprises with a growing global workforce, increased regulatory requirements, and security ramifications. For enterprises that require agility to grow their workforce, our solution enables them to quickly onboard global teams, and speed up project start times when using contractors. Tehama's on-demand solution eliminates the complexity and provides a comprehensive solution that embraces the best-of-breed EUC ecosystem partners.
