At our annual Citrix Industry Analyst Meeting in Silicon Valley last month, we had the opportunity to share our go-forward strategy and execution proof points in a collaborative setting with a select group of analysts. With all of its core datacenter networking analysts in attendance, IDC recently published their thoughts on what they heard.

Knowing first-hand how dedicated the networking team has been to bringing new product innovations to market over this past year—not to mention how committed Citrix is to lead the application delivery industry—it is great to see such positive affirmation of where we’re headed from a leading analyst firm. And, this comes on the heels of Citrix NetScaler ADC being recognized as the clear visionary leader in the application delivery market by analyst firm, Gartner, last quarter.

As highlighted in the report, the delivery networks team will play an integral role in the company’s success in the new era of web-scale Internet, cloud, and over-the-top (OTT) content.

As we move into an era that is increasingly defined by far-reaching digital transformation, cloud, and IoT, Citrix contends that application delivery extends from the datacenter all the way to the enterprise edge.

“As we move into an era that is increasingly defined by far-reaching digital transformation, cloud, and IoT, Citrix contends that application delivery extends from the datacenter all the way to the enterprise edge. It must include ADCs of various form factors (physical, virtual, containerized and distributed) in the datacenter to support the diversity of applications, as well as SD-WAN solutions that address the WAN-transformation requirements of the enterprise branch, plus application and data delivery for IoT.”

The report then goes on to reinforce our competitive position that for apps anywhere, users everywhere, only Citrix provides a complete application and data delivery solution.
