Citrix Synergy was a little over 2 months ago (if you can believe that!) and the post-event feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. One of the things that our customers and partners appreciated was the fact that our CEO boldly stated that everything you saw during the keynote (or announced on the big stage) would be available in 90 days. Since we’re rapidly approaching that 90-day mark, it’s a great time to take a pulse. To that end, George Kuruvilla and I will be hosting a free, live webinar next week to discuss the following:

  1. We’ll share what we’ve delivered or shipped since Synergy and what is yet to come; we’ll cover everything from Virtualization to Networking to Cloud.
  2. We’ll take a closer look at the popular Citrix Workspace app and Access Control keynote demos. We’ll break down the technology being used behind the scenes to do things like URL filtering and how Workspace authentication works.
  3. We’ll talk about the big-ticket items in the XenApp/XenDesktop 7.18 release that didn’t quite make the cut in terms of the Synergy keynote. We’ve been getting a ton of questions about the new Outlook search index “redirection” functionality, so we’ll do a deep dive on that (the Profile management technology behind it, deployment gotchas, etc.). And we’ll also discuss some of the really cool Director enhancements that didn’t get a lot of press. Specifically, the ability to break down the “Interactive Session” into more meaningful portions to reduce login times and the new App Probe functionality that I think is really going to come in handy to proactively diagnose app launch issues.

And if that’s not enough to entice you, George and I are going to do live a Q&A at the end of each session (July 26 at either 9 AM or 2 PM EST), so you can ask us anything you want! Hope to see you there.
