Going to TechEd 2014? Meet your favorite Petri Authors in Person!
Are you headed to Microsoft TechEd 2014 in Houston, TX this year? Several authors and contributors for the Petri IT Knowledgebase will be there as well, and we’d love to get the chance to meet some of our readers in person in an informal setting. That’s why we’re planning the first-ever Petri IT Knowledgebase Author Meet and Greet (sponsored by Veeam Software and Proximal Data) at TechEd this year: If you’re attending the show, you’ll get the chance to meet Petri contributors like Daniel Petri, Aidan Finn, Phoummala Schmitt, J. Peter Bruzesse, and more.
Author Meet and Greet Event Details
We’re holding the event on Tuesday, May 13th, from 5:00 to 7:00pm local time (CDT) at the following location:
1204 Caroline St #161
Houston, TX 77002
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.
