So leaving for fort lauderdale and Citrix HQ, looking forward to meet
Citrix and the other CTPs again and 3 days of unfiltered debate on
Citrix technologies, messaging and the future..
The entire event is under NDA so there wont be much reporting from the
evemt, however i can share some of the thoughts i have and areas which
i hope to discuss and be educated.
At Citrix Synergy in Berlin, Citrix launched their project Goldengate,
a windows application which adapts to the device connecting to it,
giving a great almost integrated experience when connecting to your
emails using Citrix from an iPhone, iPad, Android and other mobile
devices. This opens up for me in a cool way for companies to integrate
their mobile devices in their excisting infrastructure in a secure
My thoughts in this area is how Citrix will proceed in this area, was
this project only to show other vendors how apps can be devoloped to
support mobile devices in a Citrix infrastructure, or will there be
more value add for Citrix customers generated here?
Citrix in Berlin spoke highly about their investment in stuff like the
CloudBrigde, i do hope this will become even more concrete and show
how these initiatives will help customers adopt the cloud in their
infrastructure. There is no doubt Cloud computing(IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) is
here to stay but we do need more tools to help overcome the fears and
insecurities of organisations. Hope to hear more about this are during
this week in Fort Lauderdale.
XenDesktop was announced at Synergy in Berlin, we were shown the
desktop director and other cool gadgets for XenDesktop5, i look
forward to even more of a technical dialogue on what will be the next
Virtual Destop delivery mechanism.
Hoping Gus Pinto will be present it is always legendary to hear his
view on what is next in the areas of mobile receivers, true, Gus might
be a bit apple oriented, however he has a brilliant view on how
mobility could be for our users.
For me personally i spend more and more time enabling users to connect
to their Corporate infrastructures from their mobile devices and
companies are investing in this configuration and enablement even when
it is just a small group pf users, so i guess the organisations have
seen the value in access from the devices we always carry around with
5. The future..
Where are we going, i do not always agree with Citrix, however that
does not change the fact that o think Citrix is clearly in a
leadership position when it comes to Desktop and Applicstion Delivery,
so it os always very cool to hear their view on the future, and if
asked i will gladly offer my views
Now i just have to finish the last 12 hours of traveling and i will be
ready for tomorrows action packed agenda.
