One of the most exciting elements of Citrix Synergy is the opportunity to recognize and honor the achievements of our peers. We invite each of you to vote now for your favorite story of innovation and actively participate in this popular Synergy tradition.

Now in its sixth year, the Citrix Innovation Award has gained serious momentum. This year we received more than 35 submissions from around the world. Every year I am blown away by the amazing stories that demonstrate how companies are using Citrix solutions to transform their business and make IT more efficient. It wasn’t easy, but we’ve narrowed down those submissions to three outstanding finalists. That’s where you come in.

We need your help choosing the winner of the 2011 Innovation Award. Keep reading to learn more about the finalists, and visit our Innovation Award site where you can review the video profiles for each of our three finalists. Most importantly, we encourage you to vote for the organization that you feel best embodies the spirit of innovation through virtual computing. Voting is open now and closes at midnight, Tuesday, May 24, 2011.  The winner will be revealed during Mark Templeton’s keynote on May 25th at Synergy.
