Azure RemoteApp past, present & future. With the initial release, Azure RemoteApp had very limited functionality as many common features were not fully implemented at this stage. But immediately after the initial release it became clear that Azure RemoteApp takes part in Microsoft’s continuous development strategy which is applicable for every Azure component. Many iterations later, Azure RemoteApp has grown into a much more mature solution to publish legacy applications from the cloud, as a full-blown service. In this technical deep dive session, we will take a closer look at where Azure RemoteApp came from, but more importantly where it stands today and what Microsoft’s future plans are. Even though Benny and Freek are both Microsoft MVPs on Remote Desktop Services, they are both independent consultants and will tell you the whole unbiased truth about Azure RemoteApp, including limitations and pitfalls you need to be aware of. They will cover the good, the bad and the ugly. Join their session to get fully up to speed with Azure RemoteApp including the latest features like HTML5, user based assignment, the (new) Azure Portal and Azure Resource Manager integration options.

How Happy is a Happy User: Practical Tips On Quantifying User Experience. Happy, satisfied users are the key to any application or desktop delivery project. Yet, often "health" of a service is measured in abstract performance metrics - network throughput, CPU usage, Memory Usage, Disk performance. This doesn't necessarily translate to a great user experience.New to our industry is a growing trend to add in additional metrics and services that can give a "user experience" value. Is this any use to you, and how are people calculating it? In this session, we will consider user experience metrics from a host of different vendors who are innovating in this space such as Layer8, PairWise, egInnovations, ControlUp, UberAgent, Login VSI, Appensure and Liquidware Labs to understand how they are approaching measuring user experience. We'll also be looking at what you can do natively within the Microsoft and Citrix suite to help. Andrew Wood
