Meet the Parallels Team at the Texas Technology Summit

Tomorrow, on February 9, 2016, the Parallels team is exhibiting at the Texas Technology Summit in Houston, TX (booth 211), where we will be demoing the latest version of Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition, Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM, and Parallels Remote Application Server.

During the lunch sponsored by Parallels, attendees will have time to socialize, share ideas, and walk through some of the IT challenges modern life presents. Particularly of interest, the Parallels team will lead an open discussion about Windows applications and hardware limitations.

While Windows is still the main platform for business applications, the number of user-adopted computing devices that do not run on a Windows OS has increased exponentially. IT managers are faced with the challenge of providing seamless and secure access to corporate Windows applications to any user, irrespective of the device they use. Applications are delivered either via on-premises or cloud-based solutions to a wide variety of devices. These solutions deliver virtual applications to laptops, tablets, phones, and desktops. Windows applications are now fully featured on operating systems like iOS, Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome, and Android, giving these devices full functionality that will undoubtedly help them to thrive in a competitive digital environment.

During the lunch session, the Parallels business teams will also discuss enablement solutions that will help solve these challenges. Of particular note among the topics that will be discussed are local and remote application virtualization, and local and remote desktop virtualization.  Additionally, attendees will discover management capabilities, including the ability to leverage existing Microsoft SCCM infrastructures to completely control and manage Mac devices in the same way as PCs.
