There are also sessions from Brian, Jack, and I that we haven't totally ironed out yet, so stay tuned for those as we get them finalized.

We have a few slots open and a handful of sessions to choose from. We don't want to list the sessions that are on the bubble so you can pick from them. Rather, just looking at this list, are we missing something? Let us know–this is your last chance to shape BriForum!

BriForum London 2012 takes place 23-24 May at the London Hilton Metropole. More information is available on, including discounts, speaker bios, session abstracts, and sponsor information. This is BriForum number eleven (!) for us, and we as excited as ever to get to London and get this show started! BriForum is a unique conference that treats the speakers and attendees as peers with as little marketing as possible. There are sponsored sessions, which means that we keep the regular sessions technical and relevant to organizations today, and we work really hard to make sure that you leave each session with something you can take back to your workplace to help your day to day life. Hope to see you there!

Interestingly, I'm somewhat missing the buzz word "cloud" in the list, but I think it rather has degenerated to a washed-out marketing term towards end users than describing concrete solutions for IT pros. BriForum has another focus and doesn't need this for attracting attendees, of course.

Also XenApp is missing... OK, that's my personal interest and there's currently not so much about it except for the EOL discussion which will give us some migration headaches in the next 12 months...

IMHO one of the principal aspects of VDI is storage, good to see you have this on the agenda.
