Ecosystem creates joint go-to-market opportunities for IGEL partners
In November 2022, for example, IGEL announced it was ending production of IGEL-branded Universal Desktop (UD) endpoint devices and partnering with HP, Lenovo, LG, and others to deliver IGEL OS, enabling partners and customers to derive more value from their investments in Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware VDI, DaaS and SaaS solutions. Integrated endpoint devices from HP, Lenovo, and LG, that are IGEL OS certified and supported are showcased on dedicated pages, demonstrating the transition partners and customers can make in the delivery of secure, productive digital workspaces that include IGEL OS.
