A major benefit of Citrix Synergy in Los Angeles, May 6-8, is the opportunity to learn from the knowledge and experience of many different people. To complement Citrix experts, we have put together a list of outstanding guest presenters for Synergy breakout sessions through the Call for Topics process. The value and relevance of each topic and the expertise of the speaker were considered by a panel of independent judges.

These guest presenters include Citrix customers and partners, Citrix Technology Professionals (CTPs) and thought leaders such as analysts and consultants. They represent a range of industries from healthcare to financial services to education. Each will provide a specific viewpoint on enterprise mobility and the solutions and technologies that enable it, such as public cloud services, enterprise mobility management and desktops as a service.

A number of presenters will share their successes with mobility, virtualization and cloud solutions that are delivering important benefits to their organizations, particularly in large-scale implementations. These case studies are always among the most popular content at Synergy.
