Third installment of the Shape-Up Your Infrastructure Webinar Series – “Testing Chef Infra Cookbooks Fast with Docker”.  It often seems like every day brings about a new mission-critical business application to manage. Each of these critical systems needs special attention as you build out your infrastructure automation. No one wants to push out that “simple” configuration change that causes a business outage.

IT teams have recently seen a significant transformation in remote desktop management, with distributed work environment being the reality. Preparing for a distributed workforce is challenging when it comes to management of remote devices. Security and compliance have become a critical part of desktop management in this distributed world, and regular desktop management tasks can consume so much time that IT admins find it difficult to focus on higher priority tasks. So, how can you improve IT productivity as well as remote desktop manageability?   Well, that’s what we’re here for!
