The rumours of the PC's death have been greatly exaggerated, with laptop and PC sales remaining stubbornly flat for the past five years. That doesn't mean IT can rest on its laurels though. The demand for device refreshes; the need for greater mobility and collaboration; and the pressures of upgrade cadences and security requirements mean IT leaders have an ever-evolving set of challenges to contend with – and often with the same limited time and budget.

In association with Intel and their partner Insight, we will address the following topics through a series of presentations, discussions and panels:

· The myriad challenges IT teams are facing around managing a modern device estate
· The pros and cons of device-as-a-service and the Windows 10 update cadence
· How to strike a balance between increased mobility and collaboration demands with security and manageability built in
· How IT professionals can get the most out of the Intel vPro® to improve both PC performance and TCO
