This week was Interop in Las Vegas, one of the leading Business Technology events. Mark Templeton delivered a Keynote presentation about user expectations, consumerization and the Cloud that appeared to be very well received by the IT audience that finds themselves dealing with ever increasing user demands and looking for solutions. One of the top user demands today is the desire to access apps and documents from mobile devices including their own.

The timing turned out to be perfect because later during the event the category winners of Best of Interop were announced and Citrix Receiver for iPhone was deemed the best of show for the Wireless and Mobility category. As noted by Mike Finneran one of the judges the ability for Citrix Receiver to mobilize users across the iPhone and other platforms was a key contributor to winning the award.

” The Citrix Receiver for the iPhone was chosen for this award because of its consistent, simple implementation across this and other platforms and its ability to truly foster business mobility. “ – Mike Finneran

For IT pros investigating the options to satisfy high user demands while maintaing appropriate levels of security and management, Citrix Receiver and XenDesktop may provide a solution worth considering.
