Citrix UK User Group logo

Thanks to our excellent sponsors (AppEnsureExtraHopLiquidware LabsNutanix, Uniprint, AppSenseAtlantis Computing, eg Innovations  FS Logix and UniDesk) this was, yet again, a free-to-attend meeting.


The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations: especially for those presenting for the first time at the user group. Thanks as ever to the 3D-realtime attendees for providing interesting and useful questions; always great to meet and greet new faces (and again there were lots this time) we look forward to seeing you again with a larger chair quotient from the off.  Thanks also to those attending on-line via Go-to-Webinar – we a couple of niggles early doors but if you’re heckling the presenter in a friendly manner from another country – it must be working right, and at least you had somewhere to sit from the start 🙂

Who attends UK Citrix User Group events? For XVIII over 120 registered and we had about 70% turn up on the day. It is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know here in the UK, we enjoy inclusivity. Of those attending  :-

  • 66% end users/partners – we did see lots of new faces (looked to be almost half which was very interesting). Also nice to see old ones who made the trek down/across/up.
  • 10% from Citrix. As always, good to see you guys – especially during the Round Table. As Jane Rimmer mentioned in her review of the XVII UK Citrix User Group event a user group needs the support and focus from the vendor to be successful and we appreciate your contribution, obviously with a shout out to Ben for presenting.
  • 1% came from Sponsors
  • The rest put “other” for those of you who like completeness.

Again, thanks to our sponsors for this free-to-attend event, especially Liquidware for the very lovely lunch, and Appensure for refreshment and FSLogix for the post-event drinks.

Death, Taxes and The Evolution of the Enterprise Desktop – are you prepared?

In life we all know a few things are for certain — besides the obvious “death and taxes” — another certainty is that there will also ALWAYS be change.

This maxim can especially be applied to the IT industry and certainly about the desktop/workspace/user/BYOD/DAAS/VDI/SAAS landscape we are seeing morph before our eyes. All of these options certainly raise plenty of questions to an organization trying to figure out what their go-forward desktop strategy should look like.

  • “How do I get started?”
  • “What are the best options for me now and in the long-term?”
  • “How do I keep from making expensive mistakes?”
  • “Am I actually PREPARED to act on my decisions when I want to or more importantly when I NEED to?”
