As we enter 2017, I am incredibly excited about the wealth of opportunity that lies ahead for Citrix.

Our mission is clear: we will power a world where people, organizations and things are securely connected and easily accessible, so our customers can make the extraordinary possible. Our strategy is crisp and focused: we build the world’s best-integrated technology services for the secure delivery of apps and data, anytime, anywhere, on any device and network — all as a service from the Citrix cloud.

And we have a strong culture with core enduring values of Integrity, Respect, Curiosity, Courage and Unity that define who we are and the way we act.

In 2016, Citrix found a renewed vision. We sharpened our execution, and we made great strides in the pace of our innovation. I am immensely proud of what we were able to achieve.

A New Year, A New Citrix

This week, Citrix is starting the transition into a functional structure unifying our three business units into one cohesive organization. All of our engineering, product management, and product marketing will be brought together into centers of excellence. Making the transition to a functional organization and effectively eliminating business unit structure is a change that will allow us to break down the silos and will enable us to move faster and truly act as a single, powerful company — driving our vision and execution as one company.

Change is rarely easy; however, I am confident that this new structure is absolutely the right path for Citrix. Only together – with unity – will Citrix remain a powerful force in this industry. As I said, I am incredibly excited for 2017 and about pushing harder toward our future successes. Citrix has many exciting opportunities ahead. And by acting as one, we will achieve our goals even faster.

I look forward to sharing more on our transition to a unified functional structure. It will be a journey; one that will benefit Citrix, our customers, partners, and everyone that works with us.
