2017 has been a busy year for the Citrix CSP program! In addition to exceeding growth goals, we’ve introduced ShareFile Cloud Storage, NetScaler SD-Wan, NetScaler Secure Web Gateway (SWG), NetScaler MAS, and Citrix Cloud! The one thing that all of these have in common is they were announced at Summit 2017.
Not only is Summit the place to learn about the Citrix product roadmap, company vision and innovation plans, but Summit also brings 3 major benefits for CSPs:
- Education — Session tracks include sales, marketing, technical, and another dedicated completely to CSPs. Learn the characteristics of what an ideal CSP partner looks like and how you compare. Understand our product offerings and how they fit within your services offering. Attend labs to gain technical expertise, and complete certification exams to keep compliant with program requirements.
- Networking — Many CSPs report that partner-to partner networking is a key element to their success. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet your fellow CSPs from all over the world. Learn their best practices for growth or gain a partner for your joint business ventures!
- Collaboration — Partner councils and round-tables are key for Citrix to get your feedback on programs, products, etc. We need to hear your challenges and successes, failures and wins so we can be a better partner for you. Attend these activities to give your feedback on needed features, competitive shortfalls, and how Citrix can better contribute to your business.
But don’t just take my word for it! Here are some thoughts from CSP partners on why they attend Summit and why you should, too.
“As a Citrix Service Provider, I attend Summit because it’s a partner event that gives real insights on what the Citrix roadmap looks like for the rest of the year, as well as solid product information. The content from the event helps me better prepare myself, my company and our customers. I also find networking and sharing experiences with other partners to be of tremendous value. For these reasons, I highly recommend other partners to attend.” — Leon Ngo, Desktop Virtualization Practice Manager, Zumasys, Inc.
“Attending Citrix Summit is critical to understanding the direction of Citrix and invaluable networking with our peers.” — John Alston, CEO, ClubDrive Systems
