Meet Citrix Labs at Synergy- At the Citrix Technology Office Booth

We are getting close to the 2015 Citrix Synergy event, being held this year May 12-14 in Orlando.

The Citrix Labs team would like to invite all of Citrix’s customers and partners who are attending to stop by and visit the Citrix Technology Office booth (#15) in the Citrix Booth Experience, as we demonstrate and share what the Citrix Labs team has been up to.

What’s in store this year? For those of you unfamiliar with the Citrix Labs team, we are an applied research and innovation team at Citrix, focusing on evaluating new and interesting technologies that may help extend the value of Citrix solutions. If you visit the Synergy home page you will see this message: “Go mobile, stay secure- Learn how mobile workspaces are transforming business.” This message ties in nicely with the concepts we are sharing at Synergy this year.

First, we are looking at the intersection of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Software Defined Workplace. This has been an active research area for the Citrix Labs team, something we have been writing about as we capture and share our learnings. One area, in particular, we have examined is how we can automate and simplify collaborative interactions in a world where you will have a mixture of on premise and mobile participants. We will tie this into a demonstration of an automated meeting room where presenters and users no longer have to fumble with cords, codes, numbers, screens and projectors. We will also talk about how this could easily extend to other areas such as automated classrooms for our education customers.

Another active research area for the Citrix Labs team is the Future of Health Care. How can we help doctors and patients improve how they interact with each other? How can we help the various providers in the health care value chain improve how they collaborate and share information with each other? At Synergy we will have a demonstration of one of our concepts: HealthSpaces, a new solution that aims to simplify how doctors and specialists can securely interact and communicate with each other in order to improve patient care. We will also showcase additional innovations in healthcare from the Citrix Labs team.

This year at Synergy you will hear a lot about “how mobile workspaces are transforming business.” But rather than just hearing from Citrix about business transformations, we also want to hear from you! Let us know what trends are transforming your business. So please stop by and introduce yourself, take a look at our demonstrations and share with us how your business is being impacted by current and future technology trends.
