ThinPrint at Microsoft Inspire 2019

Microsoft Inspire 2019 and Microsoft Ready were a blast this year! 40,000 of the best and brightest of our industry descended on Las Vegas to learn what Microsoft is planning for the next 12 months.

Not just our own Henning had an axe-cellent time at Microsoft Inspire 2019! Seen here from left to right, Igel’s Jed Ayres and Jeff Kallberg, ThinPrint’s Henning Volkmer and JD Helms from CloudJumper!

The agenda at Microsoft Inspire 2019 was jam-packed with topics from the modern workplace to Data and AI and of course plenty of opportunities to partner with Microsoft and like-minded businesses. But one item that’s near and dear to our heart has to wait a little longer to take the spotlight: Windows Virtual Desktop remains in public preview while Microsoft is as ready for the spotlights as it needs to be. If you’re somewhat in tune with the industry rumors, you’ll know that customer interest if off the charts.

We’re really excited about so much interest and are using the time to make sure our own ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop print solution adds features and further refinement. As one of Microsoft’s WVD launch partners we have our solution in public preview as well, and you can test it alongside Microsoft’s preview – click here for more details.

If you didn’t have a chance to stop by our booth at Microsoft Inspire 2019, you can learn all about the latest innovations being made to the ezeep platform from our very own Christoph Hammer in this video shot live at Inspire.

We attended a lot of breakout sessions and had some great conversations at our booth but the highlight of the week was undoubtedly an evening of axe throwing, great conversations, snacks and drinks with many of Microsoft’s WVD team members as well as our valued partners CloudJumper and Igel.

Microsoft has a very exciting 12 months ahead and we’ve enjoyed forging closer ties within the Windows Virtual Desktop ecosystem. Thank you to all of those who came to Las Vegas to talk to us, work with us and celebrate with us. We hope to see you again sometime soon!

Having fun at Microsoft Ignite 2019!
