Getting to grips with Azure Virtual Desktop

A staple for remote working during the UK’s various lockdowns, Azure Virtual Desktop (formerly Windows Virtual Desktop) is doubtless here to stay thanks to the increased ongoing demand for hybrid working. But how do you get the most out of it to ensure your teams are able to work as effectively from anywhere as they can in the office?

During this event, Transparity’s Azure Technical Lead will take you beyond the basics and talk you through how make AVD work best for your organisation. As well as discussing use cases, we’ll cover licensing and migration before finishing with a demo and sneak peek into what’s coming next.
