Today, we have a guest post from Todd Terbeek, Sr Director Strategic Alliances for Google. Happy reading, and we’ll see you all at Summit next week! — S.S.

Google and Citrix experts have combined to offer an innovative Learning Lab at Summit 17 for Citrix resellers and partners to gain hands-on technical expertise to easily manage and deploy Chrome devices in the enterprise.

LABS624 is a three-hour, deep-dive technical session that will include an overview of the solution, hands-on experience deploying XenApp on Chrome devices, and Q&A. In addition, you will learn how to optimize enterprise deployment with the Chrome Device Management Console and to easily set up advanced management configurations such as SSO.

Chrome with XenApp and XenDesktop is the most secure, cost-effective application virtualization solution on the market and enterprise momentum continues across key vertical markets, such as financial services, health care, retail and education. Join Google and Citrix experts and learn why more than 1,000,000 users have downloaded the free Citrix Receiver for Chrome. With a new Receiver for Chrome update every quarter, Google and Citrix continue to offer new and exciting user capabilities and management features for Chrome OS devices running in any XenApp or XenDesktop environment.

At Summit ’17, Register and attend one of three LABS624 sessions on Sunday and Monday and you will not only learn how to easily configure and deploy Chromebooks in Citrix environments, but also, thanks to our friends at Acer, each Google Lab attendee will receive a new Acer Chromebook for Work at the completion of each Learning Lab session!
