Citrix Synergy: Innovations for enterprise mobility and collaboration

At Citrix Synergy,Citrix has unveiled a number of technology innovations to support mobility and collaboration in enterprises.

As part of this innovation, Citrix has expanded XenMobile enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution with new business-optimized mobile apps and cloud-based mobility management delivered through Citrix Workspace Cloud (CWC).

The company also expanded its partner app ecosystem to deliver advanced security and performance management, while ensuring a seamless experience from any mobile device.

The new business apps will help business optimize workflows. By integrating features like Outlook, Citrix enables users to work seamlessly across different devices. With SalesForce integration, Citrix allows enterprises apply policies and manage the app within their EMM environment.

Citrix has partnered with a number of technology providers include Entrust, Intercede, Aternity, AnyPresence and Kony.

As part of its innovation program, Citrix also unveiled Citrix Workspace Cloud, dubbed as the “Future of On-Demand IT.”


The cloud-based management platform provides customers the flexibility to choose which clouds or datacenter resources fit their needs best, then select the applications, data, files and features that work best for each specific organization and each person.

Soon Citrix Workspace Cloud will also be available on IBM Cloud’s SoftLayer infrastructure, the company said.

Citrix has also partnered with HP to deliver a choice of mobile workspace solutions through an on-premises cloud, off-premise cloud, or hybrid approach, efficiently powered by our breakthrough HP Moonshot and HP ConvergedSystems.

Citrix also unveiled Networking Vision of the workspace delivery controller that leverages Citrix’s NetScaler, an application delivery controller that optimizes the user experience for 75 percent of Internet users daily.

Citrix announced significant enhancements to NetScaler with the new Unified Gateway features, which help customers consolidate security at the edge and deliver simplified, unified remote access to business applications deployed in the corporate datacenter or from the cloud on a variety of user devices.

The new solution is also designed to help network automation, focus on end-user experience and re-evaluate traditional operational expenses for technology that supports applications.

Technologies such as NetScaler and CloudBridge help enterprises address today’s networking challenges by enabling the secure and cost-effective delivery of applications and data to any user at any time, in any location, to help them meet the demands of their business, Citrix said.

In another major development, Citrix expanded ShareFile, its enterprise file sync and sharing service.

With a new Workspace “that moves with you,” Citrix has enabled customers to create and outline a PowerPoint presentation or other Microsoft Office document on a phone, collaborate on content with colleagues and vendors from a laptop, dictate speaker notes on a tablet and present via an Apple Watch.

Citrix will integrate Office Online, available in June 2015, enabling editing any of the Office files from the convenience of any web browser or computer, and without leaving ShareFile.

The company claims there has been high rate of success for ShareFile among its customers. According to a 2014 survey by independent research firm TechValidate, eight out of ten customers say that ShareFile increases productivity by more than 40 percent.
