UIDPConnect 2020 Day 5 Conference Materials

UIDPConnect 2020 was held Sept. 21-25, 2020, and featured our largest agenda to date: 50 content sessions and 130 speakers presenting practical insights across five days. Attendees accessed content from desktops in six countries around the world, playing an active role watching, listening, and participating via live Q&A and interactive tools.

Nearly all sessions were recorded and can be accessed on demand by clicking on the date and then selecting the session. These presentations were not prepared by UIDP and do not necessarily reflect UIDP policies or positions.
