IGEL Announces Dates for DISRUPT 2019 End User Computing Forum, Silicon Valley


Leading Industry Event on End User Computing, to be Held February 5-7, 2019, Will Showcase How Endpoint Transformation Means Organizations Must “Challenge Everything”

IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced dates for its second annual DISRUPT End User Computing Forum. The leading industry conference on end user computing (EUC) will be held on February 5-7, 2019 in the heart of Silicon Valley at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose. Featuring prominent industry speakers sharing insights and trends on today’s EUC transformation, the conference will highlight why today’s organizations need to “challenge everything.”

“Our 2019 DISRUPT EUC event will build on the momentum and success of our first annual DISRUPT event last year held at AMD’s offices in Austin,” said Jed Ayres, President and CEO of IGEL North America and Global CMO. “It was then that we recognized just how wide-spread the industry need was for a thought leadership event that focused on endpoint computing. This year, we’ve moved the event to Silicon Valley and we’re addressing some of the hottest trends in the EUC industry as IT organizations look for the insights and best practices that will help them face the monumental changes ahead. If you’re ready to challenge EUC as you know it, you must attend this year’s event.”

Underscoring the DISRUPT 2019 theme, “Challenge Everything,” event presenters will be demonstrating how attendees can overcome the common EUC challenges of complexity and cost. Speakers and sessions lined up for the highly anticipated event will share how organizations can take their EUC environment to new levels of cost efficiency, simplicity and protection.

The event will feature a keynote address by Michelle Bailey, Group Vice President, General Manager and IDC Research Fellow for IDC’s Cloud and Datacenter Services.

“There is a clear shift happening at the endpoint. With key trends including increasing cloud adoption, security concerns and IoT proliferation, compounded by persistent cost sensitivity, end user computing must be transformed,” said Bailey. “During DISRUPT 2019, I will share the key factors contributing to this trend and what organizations must do now to challenge the status quo.”

Additional center-stage speakers include:

  • Dave Lesuer, Senior Manager, Office of the CIO, eBay
  • Douglas Brown, Global Technology Evangelist, IGEL

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
