    Dave Seibert:

    Joe. Great coverage of Microsoft Inspire. Allow me to contribute (2) solutions on the Hub show floor that are driving innovation; Microsoft Autopilot and Microsoft WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop). Autopilot leverages InTune and WVD runs on Azure. Autopilot allows both SMB/enterprise to quickly deploy or re-provision endpoints. WVD is not your father’s Remote Desktop. It is more advanced and allows multiple sessions per instance. Both are game changers.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hey Dave: Thanks for pointing out the WVD developments. Certainly big news. Gotta admit: I’ve been a desktop as a service/virtual desktop skeptic… waiting and waiting for Microsoft to develop the killer solution since they now have their own public cloud and still control Windows itself. We’ll be watching to see if WVD becomes a hit with partners.
