Citrix Synergy 2012 in San Francisco was the largest and best Synergy conference yet! There were over 6,000 enthusiastic attendees, a packed agenda, a rockin’ party with a live performance by Lifehouse and lots of buzz about new products and technologies from Citrix and our partners. However, the heart of the conference was the breakout sessions, which focused on the latest solutions that support the adoption of cloud services and mobile work styles.
