Citrix is the market leader in the server-based client computing market with its XenApp, previously known as Presentation Server, offerings. Citrix’s entry into the desktop virtualization market space was enhanced in 2007 with Citrix’s acquisition of XenSource. Since then, Citrix has leveraged the acquired XenSource technologies and in-house capabilities to introduce a new CVD product, named XenDesktop. As a CVD solution, XenDesktop is hypervisor agnostic, meaning that it can run on most commercially available server hypervisor. In recent years, Citrix has gained the leadership position in the desktop virtualization market by improving XenDesktop capabilities and overall strategic marketing. XenDesktop leverages Citrix’s existing desktop management and protocol experiences, networking expertise, and a robust partner ecosystem, including a strong partnership with Microsoft, to ensure that it can meet most of the customer’s requirements.

As people’s work life improves, their personal life improves, and as their personal life improves, their community improves, and the effect continues to ripple outward.

The workplace of the 21st century is undergoing a remarkable transformation, driven in part by innovation in consumer technology. People are increasingly bringing the smartphones, tablets and other devices they use ubiquitously in their personal lives into the workplace and expecting the same kind of rich, self-service experience they have at home. This “consumerization” is driving rapid change in business and IT, dissolving the lines between work and play, the office, home or somewhere in between.
