AWS and API Shine a Bright Light on EUC at re:Invent 2018

Compared to last year, End User Computing (EUC) demonstrably grew in presence and sessions. With the specter of Azure Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) looming, EUC in the cloud is becoming hotter than ever and AWS was prepared to highlight their highly anticipated enhancements to Amazon WorkSpaces.

User self-service options were added to the Amazon WorkSpaces Client and Linux-joined Active Directory WorkSpaces (you’re reading that right, AWS did some custom work there) rolled out, delivering on AWS’s promise to continually drive more value out of EUC.

API had one of its most productive conferences ever this year. As previously announced, we presented in the Quad at Aria. Some of the highlights were:

  • Presenting AWS Service Catalog and the value it adds for organizations with ServiceNow,
  • Providing information about Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0,
  • Discussing typical use cases for EUC in the cloud and the ‘Desktops with DevOps’ model,
  • Demonstrating our new Amazon WorkSpaces companion product, Conn3ctOps,
  • Handing out lots and lots and lots of stickers, which were really popular, and
  • Most importantly, API won an AWS Leadership Award from the EUC Navigate Program!

One of the highlights from AWS re:invent 2018 – Stephen Stetler interviewed about a common Amazon WorkSpaces Use Case! Check it out!

There is no doubt that this is an exciting time for EUC. The next year will see even more exciting features and services rolled out. Thank you to everyone that took time out of their busy, session-filled day to stop by and see what we have to offer.
