Citrix Outlines Vision for IT Transformation
New Citrix Products and Solutions Enable Flexible IT Management, Delivery of Secure Apps and Consumer-Like User Experience
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Today at Citrix Synergy™, Citrix unveiled how it is changing the IT paradigm by enabling a “build once, deploy anything” infrastructure that simplifies management and provides device-independent end points. As a result, businesses can instantly embrace new ways of working while optimizing security, agility and user experience.
Modern workspaces are no longer confined to a physical location or a specific device, providing the digital tools users need to get their job done from anywhere. As a result, businesses today are under intense pressure to respond to the demand for consumer-like apps and experience, including instant and seamless access to data and services and BYOD programs that let people use the latest devices for work. Until now, IT solutions have not been flexible enough to easily accommodate those demands, requiring major adjustments to security policies, management processes and end-user access settings in response to new hardware, services and delivery models.
“The reality is that the ever-changing consumer marketplace has come to define the technologies that people want to use at work – and rightfully so, since they offer significant enhancements to productivity and efficiency,” said Mark Templeton, president and CEO, Citrix. “We wanted to find a way to help businesses feed the wave of innovation versus having to react to it. By enabling on-demand IT for a workspace world, our customers can now deploy new resources in minutes and manage them with ease, no matter where it resides or what device people are using – all while enhancing security, user productivity and business agility.”
“Within IT, we have three initiatives: Monetize, Modernize and Mobilize,” said Derek Monahan, director of IT Services, Aer Lingus. “The Citrix platform gives us the ability to actually implement all of those three initiatives while making sure the investment we’re making for the future is going to last, and also give us the competitive advantage.”
At this week’s conference, attendees will learn about how Citrix is enabling businesses to leverage a secure and flexible infrastructure that enables them to realize greater value and return from their Citrix investment while empowering people to work creatively and productively:
