Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
Day three on Thursday August 26th is Partner Solution Day. This day consists of sessions by cloud technology providers and consultants who are intended to help you get the most from AWS products, services, and solutions.
Amazon also does other online summits for different global regions. You can learn more about and register for the AWS Summit Online – Americas 2021 at AWS Summit Online – America
