We love our video streaming subscriptions, don’t we? Compelling content we can watch in the comfort of our living rooms, any time we want, with the ability to rewind (over and over) our favorite parts, and unlimited pauses for snack breaks. Pure bliss. Well, SynergyTV delivers the same benefits—and it’s proven to make you smarter!

I may have embellished on that last part, but SynergyTV really can bring you the best of Citrix Synergy 2016, with live-streamed keynotes as well as breakout sessions that offer deep technical training you can’t get anywhere else. It’s original programming at its finest.

If you only have a short time to spend, the keynotes are a great way to connect with Citrix vision and see the future of IT—digital transformation—as envisioned by our executives and thought leaders. Watching the keynotes also offers the most immersive experience as you virtually join your colleagues and get caught up in the excitement.

SynergyTV coverage begins with the Day 1 Keynote on Tuesday, May 24, at 9:00 a.m. PDT. As Citrix CEO Kirill Tatarinov explained in his blog post, there has been “massive adoption of the cloud and mobility” in the enterprise, which is enabling organizations to be more productive and more competitive. Kirill will talk about how digital transformation is redefining IT and giving companies the chance to innovate and serve their customers even better.

Then, in the General Session on Wednesday, May 25, at 9:00 a.m. PDT, you can geek out over new technology and demos presented by executive leaders, and hear directly from guest speakers—our own Citrix customers—how they’re using Citrix solutions to create a secure, flexible IT environment that is ready for whatever comes next.

Throughout the conference, we’ll be streaming the most popular technical breakouts each day. In addition to the live stream, SynergyTV also will offer on-demand viewing immediately following Synergy of the keynotes and all of the breakout sessions. Session highlights include:

SYN323: XenApp and XenDesktop tech update – May 2016
Wednesday, May 25, 3:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m. PDT

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, the pace of innovation at Citrix this year has been incredible, with not one but two releases of XenApp and XenDesktop in just 6 months. This session will bring you up to speed on all the latest technology enhancements as well as design best practices and storage optimization techniques.

SynergyTV may be the next-best thing to being there, but the actual best thing would be to be there in person! There is so much more happening on-site, so if you are able to make it to Synergy next week, register now and join us in person.

If you can’t, sit back, relax, and enjoy the conference highlights. I’ll update my feed with news as it happens: follow me on Twitter @merisummers. And keep up on the latest news at #citrixsynergy.
