As a company that enables organizations to facilitate a work from home strategy, Liquidware is a champion of remote working. As an industry expert in the end user computing and desktop virtualization field, Jason Smith provides answers to a number of important questions in this modern #WorkFromHome situation that many companies woke up one day to find themselves in without a lot of planning or preparation in most cases.
About a third of Americans are now working from home, more ever than before. And quite simply, that's due in large part because of COVID-19 and the pandemic that was unleashed across the globe this year. VDI, Desktop-as-a-Service, Virtual Desktops, and Cloud Desktops are the technologies that enable many of us to work from home. But these technologies have been around for quite some time. So why are more and more companies finally taking note of these and other technologies that enable many workers to do their jobs remotely?
In this latest VMblog #WorkFromHome Series, we're exploring what technology means in this current paradigm shift of working remotely. And in order to do that, we're reaching out to industry experts to help shine a light on the subject. We're asking these experts to offer up their opinions and advice on what's taking place now and where things go in the future.
In this Q&A, VMblog connected with long time industry expert, Jason E. Smith, VP of Products and Solutions at Liquidware.
VMblog speaks with Jason Smith of Liquidware during the IGEL DISRUPT 2020 event in Nashville, TN.
Jason Smith talks about the path that Liquidware has taken to help its customers onboard their next generation desktop. That has evolved from VDI to cloud based desktops and native Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD). They help with assessment, move user profiles or user personas over, and deliver applications with a zero downtime migration.
Jason also talks about how Liquidware partners and works with IGEL. Liquidware's agent is now fully integrated into the IGEL firmware, which allows them to see the last mile of the end point.
