Enterprises are embracing digital transformation, which means application development needs to stay current. With Citrix ADC, your line of business (LOB) application developers can deploy their own app delivery resources anyway they choose, whether it’s in their development environment, in the cloud or in a Platform as a Service (PaaS). There is never a need to open tickets with IT, as Citrix ADC provides the speed and control you and your developers need.

Using Citrix Application Delivery Management with service groups, you can customize which applications and StyleBooks are available to each individual LOB. IT teams can choose the StyleBooks they need and map to the configuration to provide to LOB developers. You can scale operations by providing developers with a self-service model for virtual IP provisioning when their app is deployed in dev, test and prod environments.
