Celebrating the achievements of partners and distributors who drove the Citrix cloud-hosted Desktop-as-a-Service market, the 2013 Citrix Service Provider Partner Program Awards winners were announced Monday night at Citrix Summit.

The awards highlight Citrix Service Provider program partners demonstrating skill, aptitude and excellence in three specific categories:

–          hosted service vision and technical excellence

–          unique marketing and demand generation approaches

–          distribution and partner enablement.

At the awards ceremony, the judging committee noted the excellent submissions from many Citrix service provider partners making a tough competition for the finalists spots and the overall awards.  The team also noted the customer-focused business and revenue achievement of the partners who submitted nominations for this year’s competition.

Most interesting to the judging committee was the unique technical implementations of partners who follow the Citrix Service Provider Reference Architecture while also aligning with Citrix Strategic Partners Microsoft and Cisco, as well CitrixReady partner solutions, to create an overall thoughtful technical approach that benefits end user customers.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 Citrix Service Provider Partner Program Awards:
