Greetings All -
Sunday marked the opening day of HIMSS 2009 in Chicago. This show included a special milestone for the Endpoint Virtualization team, having the opportunity to demo from the Dell booth as part of Dell's new Mobile Clinical Computing solution, which was announced in a press release earlier this morning.
Brian Lynah wowed the audience showing the use case of clinical staff roaming across multiple Dell device types in mid-keystroke, instantly switching from station to station using an identity card. The demo showed SSO, application auto launch, and mid-keystroke roaming maintaining state across several thin clients, laptops and a PC. The back-end desktop can be any infrastructure model, from a virtual hosted desktop to terminal services based desktops or applications installed locally on the machines. Additional desktop lockdown and streamlining is provided by the alternate shell that ships with SWC, which can also be used to display status messages for healthcare staff on the local device. Definitely a very cool demo and the first exhibit showing a solution built around Symantec Workspace Corporate since the introduction of our new Endpoint Virtualization Suite (v 6.1).
Capping off day one was an evening of snow flurries that at least momentarily slowed the pace of this beautiful city.
