In "The Current State of the Desktop Virtualization Market", Brian will take us beyond the hype and speak about what real enterprises are actually doing.In his role as a professional blogger (Really?You can make money doing that?) for the self named BrianMadden.Com, a Tech Target Company, Brian travels the world speaking with both leading edge vendors and with companies that are implementing these technologies.With all of the choices on how to provision desktops and applications, what are people doing and why?Brian talks about these questions, but not just from an IT perspective, also from the view of end users.
Brian Madden Independent Industry Analyst and Blogger. He is known throughout the world as an opinionated, super technical, fiercely independent desktop virtualization expert.
He's also written several books and thousands of articles about desktop and application virtualization.

Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat for this one!
Our fourth annual deep dive into all things virtual. We bring together speakers from all around the industry to give VERY deep talks about all forms of virtualization. We cover server, desktop, application, presentation, and storage virtualization, "the cloud", and more. This is technical talk, not "marketecture". This is an all day event with multiple tracks. Understanding that some are new to virtualization, we will have some "hit the ground running" sessions to get you started. So whether you are a newbee or an experienced virtualization guru, we will have content that is to your liking. There is so munch content in fact that, like last year, and the year before that, we will be recording most sessions and making them available to attendees so you do not miss any of the action. Attend the sessions that you feel you will have the most questions on and get your questions answered. Then after the event, go back and review the sessions you attended and/or hit the other sessions that you missed through our website.
Vendors, speakers and other virtualization geeks will be on hand to make sure you have an opportunity to get answers to the really tough questions. Who knows you just maybe pick up a bit of swag while you are here. Speaking of swag... For those that attended prior years, you probably recall the line of tables that was completely full of great stuff. We had so much swag that every attendee went home with something. Do you think we can do it again? This year we hope it will be much of the same. Take a look at our world class sponsors in the right pane ====>>> Not only are they bringing you knowledge, most of them are bringing goodies. Take a look at the goodies table that Microsoft donated last year which included an XBox 360 + Kinect Bundle, games, books, hardware and software. Rumor has it that several of the sponsors are also holding drawings for some really cool enterprise software or gadgets at their sessions or tables. More on that the day of the event.
All of this is great but what sessions will we have? How about this for a sampling:
