While at the IGEL #DisruptEUC 2018 conference in Austin, TX, VMblog spoke with industry expert and VDI fan favorite Brian Madden. Brian is recognized around the world as an independent expert in the desktop and application virtualization industry. Brian has spent 20+ years in IT, and EUC and VDI followers know him best for his many, many years with BrianMadden.com, the website he founded back in 2003, as well as his wildly popular BriForum events which ran from 2005-2016.
Brian Madden left the industry in 2016 to pursue other interests. But, VMblog was fortunate to speak with him when he momentarily surfaced at the IGEL disruptEUC event as a guest speaker to talk about IoT -- find out why he calls it, "dumb."

There's a brand new End User Computing Forum called DISRUPT which is being launched this year across three continents: EMEA, NA and ANZ. The first event in Bremen Germany has already taken place. However, IGEL, the company putting on this fantastic show, is about to launch this inaugural event in Austin, TX in less than two weeks. To get the inside scoop ahead of the event, I spoke with Jed Ayres, President and CEO of IGEL NA and Global CMO.
Have you heard about the DISRUPT event? This is a brand new End User Computing Forum which launched this year across three continents. The first event has already taken place in Bremen Germany back on January 17th. But you still have time to participate here in the US with DISRUPT NA in Austin, TX, February 6-8 at the AMD Corporate Campus. And after that, IGEL is taking the show on the road to Melbourne Australia, March 13-14, at the RACV City Club.
The inaugural event will bring together key industry thought leaders, customers and solution providers to discuss the latest innovations in end user computing (EUC) and workspace management, including solution demonstrations and technical trainings.
"By 2020, we'll see over 50 billion connected devices and this is bringing massive transformation for the EUC market as organization face rising endpoint challenges. From the migration to Windows 10 to endpoint security demands and the need to simplify device management while lowering computing costs, end user computing is fast becoming a top IT priority," said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. "Our DISRUPT event will be addressing these EUC challenges and more. Featuring top industry thought leaders, customer best practices sessions and deep dive trainings, it will be at the center of the voice for EUC disruption in 2018."
