Discover how Queen's University, Canada moved to AppsAnywhere, and how they made software available on any device across campus to improve student outcomes.

Join Stephen Hunt, Paul Hiles, and Graydon Smith as they discuss how they implemented a tech solution that has improved student experiences on and off-campus. With 40% of their students using Mac devices, their team made the decision to switch to a solution that would support all student-owned devices. Stephen and his team wanted to deliver applications to their students the way the students wanted, from their own devices anywhere, anytime. They will break down their experiences with other software delivery methods such as VDI, and why they chose to implement AppsAnywhere.

Stephen and his team will also cover:

  • How they provided centralized application access
  • Utilizing student-owned devices
  • Supporting Windows and non-Windows devices
  • How AppsAnywhere helps achieve strategic IT priorities
