Service Providers need a better solution to address mobility initiatives

Organizations both large and small are struggling with mobility. Employees demand it, but IT organizations don’t know where to get started. Some may have started years ago using application delivery technologies to deliver Windows apps to any device while others may have recently started playing around with mobile device management technologies to enable mobile device security.

In a silo, neither of these technologies will meet the increasing demands of organizations that must enable an anywhere workforce.

What many organizations need is help. They need trusted guidance and solutions that focus on building a sustainable mobility initiative for their employees. Thankfully, we know many organizations are in great hands with Citrix Service Provider partners. The Citrix Service Provider program was designed to provide partners with the technology solutions they need to deliver high-value, business ready solutions to customers.
