Big news out of Citrix Synergy this year!  Citrix wants to make the 'everyday employee' user experience better.

At Citrix Synergy, the Citrix annual user conference which took place last week at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Citrix made several announcements over the course of the three day event.  But, the company aimed to make it quite clear that Citrix products should be an ideal option for all users, not just the power users or those in IT.  By the end of day one, it was also clear that Citrix was placing a major focus around the Citrix Workspace product.  If you haven’t seen it before, Workspace essentially provides an organized view of your available applications, documents, messaging, tasks and more; and provides users with secure access to their Web, SaaS, Windows, Linux and mobile apps.

Stringer also talks about their work with Microsoft on Office integration, optimizing Teams in a virtual environment, and synchronizing the intelligence to quickly work between the various interfaces, and finally, extending support and benefits to Citrix Workspace with Windows Virtual Desktop capabilities. And Stringer also dives deeper into the explanation of performance analytics now added into Workspace.
