Software2 User Day at Durham University, UK
Join us for our upcoming UK User Day in Durham, home of one of the world’s leading Universities and according to our Client Services Director, “the most awesome AppsAnywhere project ever!”
Durham University will share how they realised their vision of Flexible Remote Access for all staff and students using AppsAnywhere, Cloudpaging and Parallels RAS to deliver any app to any device. Demos included!
As always, there will be plenty of time to talk with your HE peers to catch-up on the latest developments in desktop and software deployment. And of course, the whole Software2 team will be there to talk best practises and unveil the latest AppsAnywhere features.
The User Day will begin with coffee at 9.30am (GMT), ready for a 10:00am start. We'll also be hosting a social event the night before (Monday 3rd December) for those staying overnight; details will follow after sign-up.
When? Tuesday 4th December 2018 - 09:30am until 3:15pm (GMT)
