On Friday night I went to a concert after work here in Miami. When the concert started I was immediately immersed in the show, mesmerized by the; lasers, pyro technics, video displays, and simply amazed and the immensely talented band. Towards the end of the show, just as any great engineer would, I began to think of all the planning, months of practice, and amazingly detailed project plan they must have had to pull off such a great show; it was absolutely the best concert I have ever been to. The show was so good that I went again on Sunday in Orlando.

How does this relate to Citrix Technologies and your enterprise projects?

Your enterprise users (CEO’s, Directors, Managers and End Users) are your customers and you want them coming back and happy about using your Citrix resources. You don’t want them leaving underwhelmed, upset, frustrated, or stressed when they utilize a system that was possibly rolled out without a well thought out and detailed project plan.

I’m not going to talk about the negative that I have seen in implementations; instead, I will stress what I have seen go into great projects with smooth rollouts and satisfied end users.

In the upcoming posts, I will review several stages of the project implementation focusing on a XenDesktop Deployment and hopefully provide some insight that will assist you in your future projects.
