Speaker Spotlight: Gary Radburn, Dell

Greenlight InsightsNews, VRS Spotlight

How will the integration of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality into work-life impact desk workers?  And what will VR and AR look like on a workstation? What features will be most desired? The answer matters a lot…especially to the world’s biggest tech solution providers, like Dell.

At VRS Conference 2017,  we’ll talk to Dell’s Gary Radburn, Director of Workstation Visualization, Commercial VR and AR.  Radburn has clearly given a lot of thought about these issues. Before assuming his current position, Radburn was committed to working with Dell customers to determine their business needs and “architecting solutions to streamline the business.”

His approach, then and now, has been to focus on the business benefits of “workstation virtualization.” That’s an interesting way of looking at VR/AR in the workplace. “How does a feature help businesses work more effectively and secure their IP – even on complex graphical workloads? he asks. “What’s their Five Year Plan look like?”

“How does a feature help businesses work more effectively and secure their IP – even on complex graphical workloads?” he said. “What’s their Five Year Plan look like?”

To Radburn, VR and AR are the third wave of “Immersive,” after Wave 1 (Destination) and Wave 2 (Portable).  

“VR and AR are part of a story of changing usage patterns to increase productivity,” he said.
