I’ve just been with over 2,000 of our partners (solutions advisors, CALCs, Citrix Ready, system integrator and service providers) watching the Summit Keynote.   Citrix is 23 years old this year and as Mark often says, partnering is part of our DNA.

I spend a fair amount of time with partners in the UK, recently attending a training session with Kelway.  Their feedback on the kinds of conversations they are having with customers looking to transform their businesses and how people work, only underline how current and relevant our technology is. 

Mark Templeton, Al Monserrat, Tom Flink and, of course, our chief demo officer, Brad Peterson shared some more detail on Citrix VDI-in-a-Box as well as Citrix Cloud Gateway and GoToManage for the iPad.  I’ll post more details about the announcements over the next few days as more detail is shared at Synergy.

It was great to see UK partners like Mike English from Cetus talking about how they are working with customers on broader desktop, networking and cloud strategies.  Also, customers such as The Co-operative Group, RBS and Tesco were part of a customer video collage – hearing from such notable organisations only made me more excited about Citrix Synergy and spending time with them all in the coming days… plus, Mark and Al alluded to exciting announcements so lots to watch out for! I’ve been speaking to a number of partners to get their take on the keynote and event so far and will update soon.

Oh, and it wasn’t me singing and dancing this time but our very own Mr Templeton 🙂
