The Virtual Computing Revolution

Citrix Systems was born from the idea of unlocking applications from datacenters and employees from the office – creating new ways for people and IT to work. Today, this is the promise of virtual computing, and Citrix is at the epicenter.

It’s a powerful vision but one that hinges on having an infrastructure that delivers a lighter, simpler, more flexible IT. Organizations that employ the power of virtual computing will lower costs, gain greater agility, and harness new levels of creativity and productivity from their workforce.

More than 230,000 organizations worldwide rely on Citrix to help them build simpler and more cost-effective IT environments enabling virtual workstyles for users and virtual datacenters for IT. Citrix partners with over 10,000 companies worldwide in more than 100 countries. Founded in 1989, annual revenue in 2009 was $1.61 billion.

 

For IT – CONTROL

People now work from every place imaginable, using everything from corporate-issued laptops, personal tablets and smartphones, to the PC in their kitchen.

Under a traditional computing model, managing and securing multiple end points and data streams while maintaining a great user experience is often more than even the most competent IT department can handle.

Virtual computing liberates employees and IT from the constraints of traditional computing, turning IT into an on-demand service, and putting people – not datacenters – at the center of gravity.

It’s through this freedom that IT gains more control over what really matters – delivering business-critical services, maintaining availability and limiting risk, without ever having to worry about the device at the endpoint.

 

For Business – FREEDOM

Forward-thinking businesses see work as something you do rather than someplace you go, where outcomes are what matter, not time spent in a cubicle.

This idea is at the heart of the virtual workstyle – where an employee can be as productive on the road as they are at the office. A parent with a sick child can work from home using their family PC. Project teams spread across different continents can collaborate as effectively as if they were in the same room. Simply. Securely.

Employees who are free to work wherever and whenever, on whatever device they choose tend to deliver great results and enjoy an effective balance between career and family.

Businesses that embrace this model experience enhanced corporate agility, recruiting, employee engagement and retention – while lowering office overhead and reducing their carbon footprint by minimizing employee commuting.
