Cloud Success truly made a splash at Citrix Synergy with a beautiful Expo Hall setup, awesome t-shirts, and several cloud sessions throughout the week. My head is still in the clouds, and after leaving Synergy it’s clear that now is a great time to move to cloud!

Here are the top 3 reasons why based on the conversations I had last week:

  1. Choice: Flexibility to adapt to changes in business demands, ability to align business goals to technical outcomes, and capacity to support more use cases that align to end user needs.
  2. Speed: With cloud services, releases, and enhancements are immediately available in cloud enabling customers to quickly expand their offering capabilities. Environments are evergreen, including the latest product build and functionality for end users. All of this with industry-setting uptime and reliability.
  3. Experience: It’s all about the end users and their experience. With Workspace, end users will be able to access what they need with “one click” and can leverage additional workflows to increase productivity.

In addition to these top three reasons, I’ll add one more: direct access to the Citrix Cloud Success team. Are you thinking about usability and customer experience? There is a dedicated team to get you there — faster — no matter where you are today. Borrowing a line from Dr. Condoleezza Rice, “It doesn’t matter where you came from, it matters where you’re going!”

The number one question I was asked at Synergy was, “How are other customers making the transition to cloud?”

It’s a great question and our Cloud Success team is already working with countless customers through this journey — collecting insights to inform and accelerate your individual cloud journey.
