Citrix Synergy Barcelona is first and foremost an open, inclusive conference, so we are proud to announce an awesome line-up of external breakout session presenters.  In less than two weeks, you will hear Citrix customers, partners, Citrix Technology Professionals (CTPs) and other industry thought leaders tell their stories and share their unique viewpoints on some of the hottest topics in cloud computing, virtualisation and networking.

The business presenters will be focusing on how they cut costs and simplified operations, illustrated by actual case studies, statistics and ROI numbers.  The deep-dive technical presenters will showcase practical implementation examples focusing on installation, configuration or administration of existing and emerging technologies.
