I am deeply proud of the work we do at Citrix and to be a part of the team here.
Citrix is a company whose foundation is built on focus and innovation, and it’s a company with great people—passionate about what they do—at its heart.
Last week, Citrix and its 4000+ partners gathered in Las Vegas for Citrix Summit 2016. Amid the glittering lights of the setting and the energy from onstage, the real story was found in Citrix relationships with its partners and in the powerful changes to Citrix products that were announced over the course of the two-day event.
I have never heard the word family used so often by a partner ever at any technology company. And that’s a testament to the strong partner ecosystem and the connection of our field leaders that we already have today. — Kimberly Martin
If you couldn’t be at Citrix Summit or you simply need a recap of all the innovations brought to light there, you’ve come to the right place. #CitrixPartnerLove is alive and well and you can find it all here on the Citrix Blog.

When we tell that workspace story, no one can compete with us. No vendor brings the vision of the workspace together as well as Citrix does. — Jesse Lipson
NetScaler is here to stay! Over the past 10 years, we’ve grown the NetScaler business at a very fast pace. In fact, we’ve seen more than 2X market growth every year. This has resulted in Citrix being able to nearly double our market share to 20% over the past five years. — Klaus Oestermann
Every time you download your favorite music, your movies, your entertainment, it’s front ended by our products. When you go to the bank, when you do a transaction, most likely this transaction is through one of our products … In countries like Germany, nine out of ten transactions go through Citrix, and that’s very, very powerful. — Carlos Sartorius
Last year, our innovation was 3X the year before. We’re going fast. Run with us because in 2016 we’re going to go just as fast – and probably faster. — Bill Burley
And those were just the announcements from Day One! As Day Two dawned, attendees might have been thinking, “Wow. I don’t know how they’re going to top that.” But top that, Citrix did.
And with that, we were off and running!
Data is not converging into one data source over time. If anything, it’s going to become more fragmented over time. …We want to solve the full business problem of our customers, which is enabling employees to securely access all their important data, not just a fraction of files that happen to live in one data source. — Jesse Lipson
It’s great to be here with a partnership that’s had decades of breadth and depth, unlike any I’ve ever worked on at Microsoft. This is unique. — Brad Anderson (Microsoft)
It was an exciting few days, to be sure. And it’s just a taste of what’s to come at Citrix Synergy in May. For more wrap-ups and takeaways from Citrix Summit 2016, check out the posts from Christian Reilly and from Meri Summers, who–in very different ways–captured the essence of what Citrix is all about.
See you in Las Vegas (and here on the blogs) for Citrix Synergy and again in January for Citrix Summit 2017!
