Citrix Cloud Solutions Propels WAGO Factories into the Future

2018 Citrix Innovation Award Showcases Customer Powering the Future of Work

ANAHEIM, Calif. – May 8, 2018 WAGO Kontakttechnik the global leader of spring pressure electrical interconnection and automation solutions, headquartered in Minden, Germany. For more than 60 years, WAGO has developed and produced innovative products for power, transportation, process, industrial and building automation markets. Citrix cloud solutions allow them to scale quickly, maintain security, and remain agile as they keep up with the company’s international goals.

As a Citrix customer for nearly 15 years, WAGO has depended on Citrix solutions to help them securely deliver apps and data to factory workers in 33 countries around the globe. They decided to move to a hybrid cloud model in order to expand to new countries quickly and securely, as well as flexibly incorporate requirements that are only needed for a short period of time. Once again, they turned to Citrix to help them evolve their IT systems to meet current and future business needs. In the past, if they wanted to roll out new apps or systems to these locations, the procurement and commissioning of the hardware alone took months. With Citrix cloud services they are now able to set up a data farm and onboard the users within a few days. As a result, the business is moving faster than ever.

One of three global finalists for the award, WAGO was voted this year’s winner at Citrix Synergy 2018. This award recognizes visionary customers who use Citrix technology in transformative ways to help their organizations thrive, lead change in their industries, and create new business opportunities.


Innovation has always been a part of our company’s DNA. Moving to the cloud has enabled us to become even more agile and try new things at a greater speed without investing money in hardware assets. Citrix has been a true partner in helping us harness the power of digitalization to move our business forward.
