Cloud.com: Creating a winning cloud strategy

As companies accelerate cloud adoption, challenges like cloud sprawl create more complexity, confusion, and risk. A secure digital workspace allows you to confidently pursue your cloud strategy.

The Citrix Workspace Service can help you confidently pursue your cloud strategy with a secure digital workspace that makes it simple to deliver, manage, and secure every cloud service you need, allowing your workforce to be productive anywhere.

Is complexity disrupting your cloud strategy?

A great cloud strategy takes advantage of different cloud technologies to power better ways of working. But getting ahead of the cloud sprawl challenge is crucial to success. You need to support a growing number of cloud apps and sensitive company information stored across multiple cloud vendors so users can get access from many devices across several networks. All of this means more complexity – and more risk.

Take a look at the numbers:

  •  87% of IT leaders believe their organizations are more complex with the cloud
  • 52% of IT workloads will be in the cloud by 2020
  • 60% of employees use public cloud services for company data
  • 14 public/SaaS apps are used daily by a typical company

The solution? A secure digital workspace

Cloud sprawl creates complexity and uncertainty across the organization. End users lack confidence that their apps will be available, consistent, and able to perform. Business leaders can’t say with confidence who is accessing their sensitive information. IT and networking professionals are uncertain if they can manage all this complexity. You need a comprehensive, integrated cloud strategy to get ahead of it. A secure digital workspace solves cloud sprawl challenges in three ways, taking your cloud strategy from:

  • Fragmented to unified
    Provide an intuitive experience across apps, services, and cloud networks with transparent access to data across on-premises and multi-cloud environments
  • Vulnerable to secure
    Create an analytics-based, user-centric, secure digital perimeter with comprehensive control and visibility across apps, devices, and networks
  • One-size-fits-all to contextual
    Delivers adaptive content, performance, and access to match each worker’s requirements and devices, automating the drudgery and eliminating errors

Confidently prepare for what’s ahead

A Citrix secure digital workspace orchestrates today’s complex hybrid- and multi-cloud IT environments into a unified workspace experience by securely delivering the relevant apps and content based on the context across any device, network, and platform. And with a secure digital perimeter, IT can manage it all through a single control pane, so that your workspace remains protected wherever your people work.
