WAGO Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co is a family-owned company headquartered in Minden, Germany. Independently operating for three generations, WAGO is the global leader of spring pressure termination technology and manufactures innovative electrical connections and electronic components for decentralized automation. WAGO has more than 6,300 employees worldwide, including 3,000 in Germany. 2013 turnover was 606 million euro.
As an international company, WAGO is in constant contact with partners and clients. But their growing success and an increasingly mobile workforce also led to more complex communication needs. The company wanted to create a more flexible IT infrastructure and implement a secure, efficient solution that would enable seamless communication between employees and with external partners, and allow mobile access to applications and files.
For several years, WAGO has been using the Citrix products XenDesktop, XenApp and Netscaler to ensure maximum uptime and continuous availability of Windows applications and desktops - independently of the devices used. Now the company also uses the file sharing solution Citrix ShareFile Enterprise and plans to introduce XenMobile for the management of mobile apps and devices. Helping them to implement these solutions is leading German IT consultancy Makro Factory. The approach chosen by WAGO includes ShareFile Storage Zones which enables them to store their corporate data flexibly on premises, in the cloud or a hybrid of both.
