Whitehat Virtual Technologies specializes in improving the quality of the end-user experience through desktop virtualization and mobility, and this trade show style event focuses on the key technologies and trends in this area. This year¹s focus is on self-service IT for the corporate IT user. Apple has revolutionized the consumer industry regarding user app selection with iTunes, and we see that trend coming on strong for the corporate user as a result of desktop virtualization and mobility. In addition to Whitehat, the key sponsors of this show are Dell and Citrix. The full list of all sponsors and their breakout session include:
