About BigFix Days

The BigFix Days virtual user conference is an opportunity for BigFix users to connect with the HCL BigFix team in a lively, interactive setting.

Come for the whole afternoon, or just the session that interests you. Either way, we’ll be glad to have you join, and we promise you’ll get something out of your visit. Join us to collaborate, share information and ideas, make new contacts, and learn something new.
