In this month’s CTO Council Newsletter, we explore the Future of Healthcare in Part One of a Two-Part Series.  We next take a look at the impact HTML5 is beginning to have in mobile development and then discuss Project Accelerator, an experiment that speeds up the implementation of XenDesktop, XenApp and XenClient.   Finally, Martin Duursma writes about the constant change in our technology-driven world and highlights the Citrix Technology Landscape.

The Future of Healthcare — Part 1  

It’s an exciting time as healthcare technologies evolve to provide real-time statistics, medical specialists collaborating world-wide, vast medical knowledge bases available at the touch of a button, medical data analytics, and a myriad of technical and communications advancements that provide new health insights.  In this article we explore technologies in the medical field that will take us into the future of healthcare.

What is the impact of HTML5?

Have open standards like HTML5 simplified development on mobile platforms, making it easier for developers to target applications across multiple mobile device platforms?  In this article we examine the use of mobile developer tools and look at an example of how Citrix Labs approached mobile development with HTML5 to solve a particular problem.
