Taming the performance troll with uberAgent!
In end-user computing the ingredient missing most often is visibility. Before you can even start to improve user experience you need to know where you stand. Are logons slow, applications performing badly, users complaining about crashes and delays? uberAgent is the perfect tool to answer those and many other questions. Based on a Splunk backend it combines quick and easy installation with high-quality metrics and a super-small footprint.  In this session, we demonstrate how to use the free consultant edition of uberAgent to quickly identify problems your customer did not even know existed. With uberAgent you know if logons are slow, storage is crappy or RAM is scarce. Geek entertainment guaranteed!

IoT & EUC. There’s a lot of talk about IoT these days. “Billions of connected devices” .. “big data” .. “going to change the world.” That’s all well and good, but what does it mean, really? If you’re an EUC person, do you care about IoT? Will it change your world? Can you ignore it? What about Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft talking about it? Does that mean anything to you? What does it have to do with Windows desktops and managing iPhones? In this talk, Brian Madden will sort it out, and talk about what you actually need to know, what really matters, and what you can ignore.

Secure your VDI, For Real
. 1. Listen to some of the war stories of major attacks how easily they could have been prevented in so many cases.  The attack surface is constantly changing but with Citrix being the leader in Application and Desktop virtualization means it is the next target.
2. Learn how to secure your deployment with all the free things.  There are so many best practices from Citrix and Microsoft that can be easily applied to make your environment more secure (You don’t want to be on the news).  Within just a couple days to weeks most deployments could test and rollout these best practices for free.  We just want to help educate the Citrix admins out there that think just by Citrix'ing something or using PVS that their deployment secure.  A PVS'ed unpatched deployment is a hacker’s paradise.
3. Learn about the most common third-party tools that are used to lock down Citrix deployments. AV, Application Blocking and a couple other items.  This part will be brief because there are so many options.  We will go over NetScaler Application firewall and how it should be part of your security model for everything.
Products and Services
NetScaler WAF 11.x, XenDesktop and XenApp core7.x.  Microsoft best practices Windows 10,2012 R2 and Server 2016, SSL implementation overview and other trends and highlights in the security world that effect Citrix deployments.  We will also go into some high level overviews when it comes to AntiVirus vendors from Symantec, to Cylance.

Identifying and fixing issues to make your consumer browser suitable for the Enterprise. Today’s modern browsers are designed for use by the general public and not for the corporate environment.

By manipulating the databases browsers use and identifying cookies and files they place in your profile, WebData Control gives you the ability to selectively retain the files your business requires and gives the users the optimal performance for the environments you’ve built.

David Bieneman, David is Co-Founder & CEO Liquidware. He has founded and led three successful organizations with his desire to make both the user and admin desktop experience more efficient through innovative technologies and management software. In the mid 90’s, Bieneman began working with early virtualization technologies including VM/386, Citrix WinFrame, and NT Terminal Server to solve many clients’ early remote access and server based computing needs. In 2002 he founded Vizioncore as a software development company focused on enhancing Citrix and VMware platforms. The business thrived as a provider of security, policies and printer control tools. In 2004, after seeing VMware’s early success with VMware ESX, Bieneman and team switched focus to handle hot backups and recovery of virtual machines. New technologies were born including esxRanger (vRanger), esxCharter, esxMigrator and esxReplicator. After great success, Vizioncore was acquired by Quest Software in 2007. Realizing that desktop virtualization was set for growth and that Windows delivery was becoming diversified, Bieneman co-founded Liquidware in 2009 to help consultants and organizations rapidly and efficiently manage desktop transitions in virtual and physical desktop environments. Liquidware is now the leader in workspace environment management with the most comprehensive suite available today. The products are currently known as Liquidware Essentials and consist of Stratusphere UX (monitoring and diagnostics), ProfileUnity (user environment management) and FlexApp (application layering).

Taming the performance troll with uberAgent. In end-user computing the ingredient missing most often is visibility. Before you can even start to improve user experience you need to know where you stand. Are logons slow, applications performing badly, users complaining about crashes and delays? uberAgent is the perfect tool to answer those and many other questions. Based on a Splunk backend it combines quick and easy installation with high-quality metrics and a super-small footprint. 
In this session, we demonstrate how to use the free consultant edition of uberAgent to quickly identify problems your customer did not even know existed. With uberAgent you know if logons are slow, storage is crappy or RAM is scarce. Geek entertainment guaranteed!

Alternate UPNs with Office 365/AzureAD – solving the namespace dilemma (do you really know about Kerberos?). Moving into an Office 365 / Azure world comes with an unexpected side-effect: in many cases, you introduce a new parallel naming scheme for user credentials because you align the UPN account name with the corporate email address space. While this works great in all forms-based authentication scenarios, the internal desktop, RDS and VDI clients that leverage Kerberos capabilities soon cause you trouble once you hit non-Microsoft products.

Making web data and cookies manageable once and for all. Web data has long gone unmanaged with websites storing unknown data on systems.  Historically this consisted of small files that were easily manipulated.  With the introduction of the webcache file roaming web data is difficult and expensive.  Security is of prime concern with the web being the primary source of malware.  WebCache Manager addresses these issues, reducing the size of the webcache and deleting all unnecessary data from systems.

Securing Windows desktops – why it’s our problem! Jorrit talks through “the basics” of securing a Windows desktop to help reduce the risk of ransomware attack and improve image management. Ransomware attacks are up 300%. Whilst deploying Virtualised desktops can help keep apps and data in the datacentre, the responsibility of protecting the users from such attacks are no longer the job of the InfoSec guys. Securing users and desktops is fast becoming the responsibility of the End user computing / Windows engineering teams.

How Websites Steal Your Machine's Resources - Browser Performance Analyzed. Browsers have come a long way. What started as simple applications for the display of text and the odd image has turned into a platform for web apps. One could say browsers have become operating systems in their own right. The average end user easily juggles a few dozen browser tabs without blinking an eye. This corresponds to an equally large number of web apps running concurrently - on your machines, consuming your machines' resources! High time we take a good look at how browsers utilize system resources, how different browsers stack up against each other and whether adding a GPU helps reduce overall load. In this session you will learn:

- How and why browsers significantly impact performance
- Which browsers are best for user density
- What can be done to reduce browser resource footprint

Anatomy of how a company got hacked - part DEUX. Security is a current topic (that should be) on everyone’s agenda: your systems, data, identity and IPO are at risk! In order to understand how to protect yourself against hackers you need to understand how hackers think and how they operate.
 In this session Geert Braakhekke and Remko Weijnen will present the analysis of a fictional attack against a car company where hackers managed to capture credentials, bypass multifactor authentication and hack one of the company’s products. Hackers used interesting technology such as a USB device that emulates a keyboard, GPU technology to crack hashes and smartcard emulators. Emphasis in the session will be to live demo the technologies used rather than Powerpoint them.

How do GUIs compare to real life?  Do the installers create more drama behind the scenes than dialog on-screen?  How can a Com Interface find work? No matter how you want to cut it, it is all about the Apps. You can slice, you can layer, you can jamb them all in a tight little box.  But if you don’t know how to understand what the Apps are made of you are heading for trouble.  I’ll provide a look into Applications and how they integrate.  Much of the information will be a fresh take adapted from a new book I’m working on.

How Websites Steal Your Machine's Resources - Browser Performance Analyzed. Browsers have come a long way. What started as simple applications for the display of text and the odd image has turned into a platform for web apps. One could say browsers have become operating systems in their own right. The average end user easily juggles a few dozen browser tabs without blinking an eye. This corresponds to an equally large number of web apps running concurrently - on your machines, consuming your machines' resources! High time we take a good look at how browsers utilize system resources, how different browsers stack up against each other and whether adding a GPU helps reduce overall load.
In this session you will learn:
- How and why browsers significantly impact performance
- Which browsers are best for user density
- What can be done to reduce browser resource footprint

Dell Server and Citrix XenServer - Octoblu Integration.  Automated monitoring, decision-making and control are essential elements of a robust and agile computing environment. Being able to trigger intelligent responses to events based on heuristics will enable optimized control of a server environment. Full XenServer control via Octoblu has been achieved, allowing the input and secure execution of CLI "xe" commands as well as pre-defined batch jobs. I will also cover the current status of my explorations of using Dell server internals obtained via SNMP to monitor the physical state of Dell servers and the subsequent processing and analysis to automatically react to hardware issues. Combining these metrics allows the creation of alerts and reactions to possible server failures with predetermined proactive and reactive procedures.

VDI Lockdown 1.0: Securing Your Deployment Citrix has been in the Application and Desktop Virtualization Game for over 26 years, and it has been primarily deployed for Centralization and Security reasons.  In this session, you will learn how to secure your Citrix deployment against intellectual property theft, how to survive a penetration test along with some of the most common attacks.  The amount of attacks continues to rise, and the amount of data that has been released\leaked from so many companies is staggering. Just like most things, many of these breaches could have been prevented by having basic security policies in place and some basic patching in many cases.  We will show you all the free things you can do to lock down your deployment and what products people use to go to the next level in security. Citrix has one of the most comprehensive and secure deployment options compared to any other solution out there, but many partners\clients never take the simple steps to lock it down because of the extra time it takes.  Come and listen to learn how to implement true security for your deployment, not just the cookie-cutter, typical vendor solution.

Improve Your Application Troubleshooting Skills. Applications often do strange things neither their users expect nor their creators intended. The reasons for this are manifold, but in order to be able to find the root cause of a problem you need to have at least a basic understanding of how developers work.
In this session Helge explains the world from the point of view of a developer. Building on that he describes why applications work they way they do. Then he examines how powerful tools like Sysinternals Process Explorer show what is going on inside applications and how that knowledge can be used to troubleshoot all sorts of issues, ranging from hangs to analyzing the performance footprint of applications.
In this session you will learn:

- How to better troubleshoot application issues
- How to properly use powerful analysis tools like Sysinternals Process Explorer
- How to identify obstacles to great application performance

Anatomy of how a company got hacked. Security is a current topic (that should be) on everyone’s agenda: your systems, data, identity and IPO are at risk! In order to understand how to protect yourself against hackers you need to understand how hackers think and how they operate.
 In this session Geert Braakhekke and Remko Weijnen will present the analysis of a fictional attack against a car company where hackers managed to capture credentials, bypass multifactor authentication and hack one of the company’s products. Hackers used interesting technology such as a USB device that emulates a keyboard, GPU technology to crack hashes and smartcard emulators. Emphasis in the session will be to live demo the technologies used rather than Powerpoint them.

On App/Desktop Deployments. In working with enterprises, I am constantly surprised at the ways in which they bungle getting apps and desktops out.  It isn’t (usually) incompetence, or lack of process.  It usually is inadequate and outdated processes, lack of focus on details, and verification of work performed by others, especially when contractors/third party actors are involved.  We’re going to focus and talk (yes, you don’t get to just sit and drink) about what a complete app/desktop delivery process should include today.

How Happy is a Happy User: Practical Tips On Quantifying User Experience. Happy, satisfied users are the key to any application or desktop delivery project. Yet, often "health" of a service is measured in abstract performance metrics - network throughput, CPU usage, Memory Usage, Disk performance. This doesn't necessarily translate to a great user experience.New to our industry is a growing trend to add in additional metrics and services that can give a "user experience" value. Is this any use to you, and how are people calculating it? In this session, we will consider user experience metrics from a host of different vendors who are innovating in this space such as Layer8, PairWise, egInnovations, ControlUp, UberAgent, Login VSI, Appensure and Liquidware Labs to understand how they are approaching measuring user experience. We'll also be looking at what you can do natively within the Microsoft and Citrix suite to help.

Extreme Makeover – Turning Desktop Computers into Managed Thin Clients. The benefits of virtualizing the desktop are well documented, but projects stall unless there is a valid business case, which in every case involves financial justification.  IGEL Technology makes virtualization projects viable by providing the means to manage existing assets as thin clients using IGEL’s industry-leading and extremely cost effective workstation management tools. In this session, you will learn that being thin is not about hardware.  We will discuss leading options for turning existing personal computers, laptops, etc. into managed thin client workstations.  You will also see how easily a desktop or laptop computer can be turned into a workspace managed thin client using the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter and Universal Management Suite. Each attendee will walk away with a certificate for three IGEL Technology UDC2 Thin Clients, complete with IGEL’s workspace management system.

Azure RemoteApp past, present & future. With the initial release, Azure RemoteApp had very limited functionality as many common features were not fully implemented at this stage. But immediately after the initial release it became clear that Azure RemoteApp takes part in Microsoft’s continuous development strategy which is applicable for every Azure component. Many iterations later, Azure RemoteApp has grown into a much more mature solution to publish legacy applications from the cloud, as a full-blown service. In this technical deep dive session, we will take a closer look at where Azure RemoteApp came from, but more importantly where it stands today and what Microsoft’s future plans are. Even though Benny and Freek are both Microsoft MVPs on Remote Desktop Services, they are both independent consultants and will tell you the whole unbiased truth about Azure RemoteApp, including limitations and pitfalls you need to be aware of.
