“If you build it, they will come.”
That’s not just a famous movie line. It’s also how Chevron Phillips Remote Connectivity & Mobility (RCM) Engineer Ryan Tsamouris describes the increased productivity that the petrochemical joint venture has been able to achieve with Citrix Workspace Suite, which provides more than 5,000 Chevron Phillips employees across 33 manufacturing and research facilities personalized digital workspaces that securely deliver the apps, data and services they need to get work done anywhere in the world.
RCM’s workspace strategy puts the user at the center of IT delivery, ensuring that employees can access the tools and information they need across any device and in any environment. To deliver on this digital workspace vision, Chevron Phillips needed an integrated solution that could adapt to the ever-changing requirements of manufacturing workers and office employees while ensuring that the company’s information and infrastructure remained secure. After a thorough product comparison which included F5, AirWatch, Good for Enterprise and others, Chevron Phillips chose Citrix Workspace as the one solution that could holistically deliver on its user-centric workspace vision.
Today, Citrix Workspace gives Chevron Phillips employees access to the apps and information they need to work everywhere, from the manufacturing floor to the corporate office. As part of a unified suite:
- XenApp and XenDesktop delivers app and desktops that adapt to an individual user, where they are, and the job they need to perform;
- XenMobile simplifies device management for IT, allowing them to on board any device – from smartphones to tablets – and set and enforce security policies centrally;
- ShareFile enhances productivity by empowering Chevron employees to securely share and collaborate around key documents – from designs to service orders; and
- NetScaler ensures application reliability, performance, and network security across Chevron’s expanded perimeter.
“Citrix Workspace gives us the freedom to use all these products without having to worry about additional licensing or add-ons,” Tsamouris says. “We no longer have to decide whether we have the resources to take on a project. We already know we have the platform and the solution to support it.”
