Citrix Introduces New Cloud Solutions to Power Mobile Workstyles

Today at Citrix Synergy™, Citrix unveiled advancements toward its mobile workstyles vision, providing powerful new ways for people to work whenever, wherever and however they choose. Citrix enables mobile workstyles through a comprehensive portfolio of cloud solutions that accelerate building, deploying and managing cloud services and IT infrastructure. More than just computing and storage power, Citrix cloud solutions serve as the engine of mobile workstyles, delivering any type of app, to any type of device, over any type of network, while supporting new forms of social collaboration to connect people. At this week’s Citrix Synergy Los Angeles, attendees will learn about how these new offerings and the entire Citrix cloud solutions portfolio can mobilize every aspect of work and bring the reality of mobile workstyles to any business.

Mobile workstyles are not just about devices, they are about people and the changing nature of work. This evolution has been amplified by the consumerization of IT and the rapid adoption of mobility and cloud. As work becomes more complex and unpredictable, people need simple solutions that let them get more done, more quickly. Today’s news from Citrix highlights new ways for customers to mobilize their businesses by delivering desktops, apps and data as true on-demand cloud services from both private and public clouds, transforming how they operate, collaborate and innovate:

  • Citrix XenDesktop® 7 Mobilizes Windows Virtual Apps and Desktops on Any Mobile Device - The latest version of the market-leading Citrix XenDesktop solution helps businesses mobilize Windows apps and desktops and deliver them as a service to any mobile device. Built on a new, cloud-style architecture, XenDesktop 7 is simple to deploy, manage and support with purpose-built and timesaving installation, configuration and automation tools that enable IT to deliver individual apps or complete desktops with ease. New breakthroughs with HDX Mobile™ technologies enable any Windows app to function intuitively and transparently on mobile devices, providing a seamless mobile-friendly experience.
  • Citrix XenMobile™ Enterprise Redefines Enterprise Mobility - The introduction of the Citrix XenMobile Enterprise Edition solution combines mobile device, app and data management, a unified corporate app store, Worx Mobile™ productivity apps and “one-touch” live support into an inclusive solution for delivering mobile services to business. Worx Mobile apps include WorxMail for secure e-mail, calendar and contacts, WorxWeb for secure web browsing, and the ShareFile™ data sharing solution for secure document sharing, sync and editing. Additional Worx-enabled Citrix mobile apps include GoToMeeting® for easy online meetings, GoToMyPC® for secure remote access to a PC or Mac and Podio® for team collaboration on any mobile device. Through a new mobile app market built for XenMobile, more than 60 of the leading companies in mobility will deliver Worx-enabled apps that extend the policies and security control provided by XenMobile.
  • Citrix ShareFile™ Mobilizes and Secures Enterprise Data Everywhere - Citrix is uniquely positioned to mobilize user data while providing IT with comprehensive control to secure enterprise data everywhere. ShareFile StorageZone Connectors introduce innovations to the Citrix ShareFile data sharing solution, including added support for Microsoft SharePoint and network drives, helping enterprises provide secure mobile access to data behind the corporate firewall. ShareFile also includes a new built-in mobile content editor, which now supports standard SharePoint functions like check-out, edit and check-in from mobile devices. New StorageZone options with Microsoft Windows Azure offer IT the added flexibility to store data in Microsoft hosted datacenters, in addition to Citrix-managed clouds or on-premise within their own datacenters. Through unique integration between ShareFile and XenMobile, IT can choose ShareFile as the common data platform and enable seamless interoperability to open, edit, sync and share data securely on any mobile device.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, will discuss recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model f...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the backbone of their business in 2016. However, IoT is far more complex than most firms expected. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, a renowned visionary and thought leader, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the process of IoTifying the existing technology and business models to adopt and leverage IoT. He will drill down to the components in this fra...
Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
